  • Rolled Omelette 卵焼き
  • When I was in junior high school, one of my friends ate the rolled omelette from my boxed lunch made by my mother, and she said &q

  • If you were an English learner and when you read a book in English, it is said that don't look up words you don't know,
    and stop reading the book when it is not interesting for you.When I read books in English, I hardly use a dictionary. Of course th
