I've found many things in common between your students and me. I'm a Japanese university student who is majoring in English. I chose English as my major because I went to England on my high school trip and it was amazing.
Also I live in Shizuoka.
I want to say good luck to your students. It's really fun to study English at university. I was lucky, so I got a chance to study in Australia for a year. I love the country. I am still struggling with English even after the one year, but I've got guts to speak up English to people.
Can't wait to listen to the next episode.
Take care!

It is true that you need to have guts to be good at anything. Try to find new and interesting ways to improve your English and have fun doing it. I hope you will continue to listen and enjoy the show.
