I have already overcome it by just having fun to speak in English.
Japanese people tend to think we should speak English with no mistakes.
But I try not to concern about it too much.
It was the last day for my children to go to school this year.
They had a small party in their classrooms.
I got an email from my 8-year-old daughter's room parent a few days ago that;
"Please have your child wear their cozy pajamas to school (if they'd like to)."
I wondered why they go to school wearing their pajamas??
I asked my daughter,
"The children who want to wear your pajamas can go to school with your pajamas. What will you do?"
"No, I won't wear pajama."
She went to school as usual.
After she came home, she said;
"Most of my classmates wore pajamas, except three students including me. Some of them brought their favorite stuffed animals. Even the teacher was wearing his pajama, too!"
"What??? What for???"
I was very surprised to hear that and asked her.
"I don't know."
"Did you want to wear your pajama like them?"
I asked her, and she answered,
"No, I don't mind."
Such an event would never happen in Japanese school.
I am curious why the pajama party is a common event in American elementary school.
