Kenji: Well, that’s helpful, Kota!
Kota: OK, I have to go. See you later!
Mitsuko: He’s so grown-up, isn’t he?
Kenji: Yes. Ever since he came back from Australia, he’s Surfb changed.
Mitsuko: And it’s wonderful to see his devotion to surfing.
Kenji: He even won the local competition. I never imagined he would do so well!
Mitsuko: I’m so proud of our little boy!
Lesson 217 どうしたのかな
Sapna: Nigel and I are going on a snowboarding trip together!
Kota: Wow, really?
Nigel: Yeah. You showed me that it’s important to challenge yourself.
Kota: That’s true! How’s Briony? I haven’t heard from her in a while.
Sapna: Oh, you haven’t?
Kota: No. I sent her some texts recently. But I haven’t received a reply yet.
Sapna: Oh, I think she’s really busy these days. Right, Nigel?
Nigel: Yeah, that’s right. She’s occupied with family things!
Kota: Well, I’m glad you two are doing well.
Sapna: We’re so happy to chat with you, Kota!
Lesson 218 あの女の子はだれ?
Volunteer 1: Wow! Who’s that girl surfing over there?
Volunteer 2: She’s really good!
Volunteer 3: Did she just do a 360 spin?
Kota: Wait a minute. That cool girl looks familiar. It can’t be…. It is! It’s her! Briony! Briony! Is that you??
Kota: I can’t believe you’re here!
Briony: Your family and my family helped me organize this surprise trip to Japan.
Kota: And Nigel and Sapna?
Briony: They were in on it, too, of course.
Kota: You guys are so sneaky!
Lesson 219 あの波に乗れ･･･!
Kota: Yeah. I set up the volunteer group. If we clean this beach in Iwate, then we keep your beach in Sydney clean, too, Briony. Japan and Australia are linked by the ocean.
Briony: That’s a beautiful thought. So, have you learned any new surfing tricks?
Kota: Of course! I’ve been trying to do a 360 spin. I think I almost have it. I’d like to demonstrate it for you.
Briony: Oh, look! Some really good waves are coming! I’m going in!
Kota: Oh! Wait for me!
I want to read twice as much next year.
I haven’t cleaned my room yet.
I want to clean it before the new school year.
