[Easy English Blog] Business Trip

Last week, I went on a business trip. I went to Kyoto. It took four hours to travel from my city to Kyoto. I went by train. I was tired when I arrived.

I stayed at a hotel near Kyoto Station. The hotel had a tower on top of it. I had some free time, so I went to the top of the tower. The views were amazing.

The next day, I went to a university. I attended a conference for English teachers. I had a table at the conference. I introduced my graded readers for learners of English.

It was a long day. I arrived at the university at 8:00am and left at 6:00pm. I spoke to many English teachers about graded readers and their English classes.

At night, I went out for dinner. I had tofu and tempura and other food. It was good.

The next day, I went to the university at 8:00am. I decided to give away all of my graded readers. I had about 50 books. Many teachers wanted a book for their university library. By 1:00pm, all my books had gone. I left the university at about 2:30pm.

I got the train back to my city. I arrived home at 9:00pm. I was very tired, but very satisfied. It was a good conference, and I could talk to many teachers. I hope the teachers and their students enjoy my graded readers.
