Mongolian Wants to Teach English to Repay Kindness

The Daily Yomiuri reported on Saturday about Mongolian Baatareeel Choijin, who is to start an English class for children in earthquake-stricken Niigata prefecture. Togother with his wife, who was an English teacher in their home country, the 37-year old has offered to do English classes every evening at the Nagaoka Ote High School, where they and their 12-year old daughter were evacuated. He was working as a coordinator for international relations, as well as assisting in math classes in a local primary school, in the village of Yamakoshimura when the earthquakes struck last month. He says he developed an even closer relationship with villagers in the evacuation center and wants to return their kindness until he and his family go home next March.
