My Home


I have to do some hard caulking, pardon the expression. For my American friends, “hard caulking,” is a Canadian term, really it is eh. I wouldn`t lie to you. I gotta redo the bathroom. It is amazing what can happen to a house after 16 years. There are things growing that I think scientists would get excited about, “My God, it`s a whole new species!!!!”

    Hello Kevin!

    Too funny. Beautiful home!

    Hey – do Canadians use the British spelling of words or the American. I have a strong suspicion it’s the British. Friends were asking, so I thought I’d ask you since you’re a Canadian who teaches English in Japan. I figure that you’d be up on the differences.

    Hello to all the family and have a great week!

    Thanks for your kind words Mary! And Canadians use the British spelling for most words. ie) centre

    But for my teaching website I used the American spellings mostly. Though lately I am doing both. I just did that because I felt
    most of my readers would probably be American.

    As a teacher I usually teach the easiest spelling, which tends to be the American version of the word. Plus the Japanese have studied American English for the most part.

    I`m combining my Japan Living Website into How to teach English in I think that is for the best. Hope things are going well at your end!

      Thank you Kevin. Very interesting.

      I guess that I’d do the same myself. Teaching is an art and sometimes it takes knowing one’s students to know what to teach.

      I look forward to your renovated website. It’s very interesting already.
