Translating Keiichiro's Stories

This section includes three stories translated from Japanese to English by students in Timothy Mossman's translation class at Canadian International College in Canada.

Keiichiro Sugimoto, a Japanese businessman who lived in the U.S., wrote the stories to humorously describe the difficulties he faced communicating with American people and to help others understand how to get along in similar situations.
