■ Hello School 英語 (ハロ英 Ver.2) Lesson 18 比較 Part.4  ■


Hi, Haromi.
Is Manami absent from school today?

 I heard she went to the hospital.
 But she is going to come to school tomorrow.

She is great.
I can't believe that she passed the difficult exam.

 She always makes efforts to overcome herself.
 Most of the students just take their classes without a purpose.
 I am one of them.

She is one of the most excellent students in our school now.
She studies harder than any other student.
But she said that she could not go on to high school because of
mental disorder.

 I hope her future will change.
 I'll persuade her.
 I want to spend my high school life with her.

I worry about her illness.
I hope her illness doesn't get worse.

 Nothing is more precious than health.

It's a wonderful phrase.

 Our English teacher taught us today.

I'll talk to Manami when she comes to school.
