This is the extreme of teachers teaching through the end of class bell. On the Terebi Asahi (TV Asahi) tv show, Akira Ikegami, a journalist was speaking during the Manaberu News Show, or the Learning News Show.
(For the record, he’s explaining the difference between stocks and corporate bonds.)
Please watch for yourself… the explanation is below.
The show was having a 6 and a half hour New Year’s Special. Although there is a countdown on the screen, and the tv personalities and celebrities in his “class” seemed to be getting antsy, he just kept teaching as the countdown reached zero before delivering an incredibly understaed Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu, or Happy New Year.
This was my first big laugh of the new year! A countdown show sans countdown. How cute is it that no one wanted to interrupt him… or that he wanted to immediately continue!
