Yugo and Shodai
Here are two of my students, Yugo (8) and Shodai (7).
You'll notice the "V" gesture here. This is not a reference to peace, nor is it a historical nod to Churchill's acknowledgement of victory in Europe.
Rather this is the Japanese equivalent of "cheeeeeese".
Don't really understand it, but wander round Tokyo and you will often catch people stood in front of temples and whatnot giving it the Vees while their other half does the snapping.
Yugo, on the left, is quite clearly very clever and is too advanced for this group. He scored 100% on his test and spends most of the lesson bored.
Shodai on the other hand spends most of the lesson pretending to be a robot.
