Hello everyone, it's Mark here, I had a great time during the event and I hope you all did too.
Many of the students that joined us for the event, had many questions about things we saw or talked about during
the event, so here is a list of words and meanings which I noted down during the event.
Water Current : The speed of moving water, for example; the river we walked along had a fast current.
Water Current : 水流
Viper: A type of snake.
Acorn: The seed of an oak tree.
Heron: A type of bird.
Scar: A mark on the skin left after a wound has healed.
Boar: A type of wild pig.
Thumb: The largest(not longest) finger on your hand.
Sheep Herder: A person that cares for and moves sheep around on a farm.
Sheep Herder: 羊飼い
Zebra Crossing/Pedestrian Crossing: The white striped part of the road, used to safely cross to the other side of the road.

Please watch my bag for me: If you leave your bag somewhere, and you want someone to look after it, you can say this.
Can I leave my bag here with you?: This is a more polite way to ask someone to look after your bag.
Can I leave my bag here?: This question does not ask for anyone to look after your bag, it only asks if you can leave the bag in that area.
Please be careful using those 3 phrases!
To Spill: To tip some liquid or uncountable solid out of a container, for example; Oh no! I spilled coffee on the floor! or Oh no! I spilled my rice on the table!
To Spill: こぼす
Stain: A stain is a mark left after something that is dark coloured is absorbed into something that is light coloured, for example: Oh no! I just spilled Cola on my white shirt! it
will have a brown stain if I don't wash it quickly!
That is almost all of the vocabulary that I taught during the event! I hope you can use these words and phrases the next time that you speak English!
Once again, thanks for coming to the event!
