Hello Phuong,
Thank you for your call today!  I was happy to talk with you!  Recently I’ve been very busy.  A friend of mine started his own English teaching school and I have been going there everyday to help him interview English teachers for a job.  Also, I have to teach my own classes everyday as well as look for a job in Vietnam!  I have been using the newspapers you sent me, as well as “vietnamworks.com” and some other websites to try and find a job.  It might be difficult to do from Tokyo but I will try very hard and I think I will find something. 
I have to work here until October because I promised my company and my students are very excited to learn English.  So I cannot just leave them right now, but my Visa will expire in October so I must leave.  If I go to Vietnam is it difficult to get a Visa to work?  I can come to Vietnam to visit no problem but to get a work visa might be difficult.  I will try my best!
I’m looking forward to coming to Vietnam and going out with you to some bars!  How was the party at Minh’s house?  Were her American friends nice? 
Thank you also for your offer to stay at your house!  It is very kind of you!
Ok, I’m going to look on the internet for some jobs now!  Practice hard at the gym!!

Thanks for sending me those articles.  It looks like you’ve done really well
for yourself and Grandpa and Grandma would be extremely proud of what someone
who had trouble with Math has become.  I’m extremely proud to have such an
intelligent father who can always show me the other side or view when
problems arise and offer a well thought out solution.  I only hope that with
all this studying I may someday be somewhat successful as well.

Good Morning Dad,

I’m glad you like the books.  I’ve been reading a lot lately about space and
where exactly we are.  Living abroad has done so much more for me than
simply language.  I’m able to understand people, their influences and
mentality much better now.  Getting out of one’s normal environment really
makes one expand their mind and see life from a completely different

What’s up man,
Sorry for the late response.  I’m busy every day here trying to learn this pinche Japones.  Pero en serio me esta matando.  Tambien, tengo que buscar trabajo, y en serio estoy buscando trabajo en Vietnam.  Me enctanta esa pais, pero creo que para encontrar un trabajo seria dificil.  Estoy seguro que no quiero regresar al Columbus para nada. 
Aparte de eso, estoy saliendo con el Masarito como siempre y estamos tomando como locos.  Tambien, entre el club de espanol en mi universidad.  Los weyes por ahi no pueden hablar para nada a menos que una mujer bien buena.  Tambien, hay un español quien esta ensañando el accento español a los Japoneses.  Es bastante divertido.  But there is this one dude from Argentina who says I shouldn´t say the word “Wey and huevos.”  You’ve got me saying that and I have a hard time cutting it out. 
Are you still in school??  Are you ever going to graduate?  What is going on in Columbus?  The next time I’ll be home is most likely Christmas, although I’m going to Lake Tahoe with H for the family reunion.  We’re returning to Japan though after since I have to get back to school.
Let me know what is up there.
