Inoue Mao becomes student for a day

25th April 2010

Inoue Mao and her co-star Jonathan Sherr from the movie 'Darling wa Gaikokujin' visited the University of Tsukuba Elementary School on 25th April. In a tie-up with MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), Inoue and Sherr took part in a classroom activity to promote the study of the English language which will become part of the curriculum of Japan's elementary schools from 2011.

Inoue sat together with 39 students from Grade 6 and Sherr took his place as a teacher, quizzing the class on the theme of food. The boy seated next to Inoue was so nervous, he was looking down the whole time. Inoue finally managed to extract a smile from him when she explained some of the answers to him.

Inoue said,"It has been a long while since I took part in a class, it was fun. I'm surprised at how much vocabulary everyone knows. Girls, if you want to get a wonderful darling (like Sherr), study hard for English!"


I know Mao wants to promote her movie but that last line from her made me cringe ・・・(=ェ=`;)

By the way, it was Jonathan Sherr's birthday on 24th April and Mao sent him flowers. Drop by his blog and leave a birthday message :)

Lol at the nervous kid. Though I'm sure I would be just as nervous! :P Thanks for translating this, even though you're super busy!

Thanks for translating this. I love Mao's straight black hair. Is this for her new project? I really hope so. I really want a drama for Mao this summer at least.
