Do you have any word that you do not know?

 I asked him if he had any words that he did not know. He gave me a weak smile and said nothing. I changed my question to, "Do you have any words that you do now know?" He smiled at me and stayed silent. I said, "Do you understand the words in the story?" He kept his weak smile and did not say anything.

I gave up on him because I should not have pressed anymore. If I did, he would possibly complain to the management about me by saying, "He is an unfriendly and harassing teacher. Please change to another teacher." Hard to believe it? Better believe it because it has happened to me.

A student like him is no exception in Japan. No wonder Japanese people do not learn English well.
