Monday Group Discussion: Retirement

Hi Guys!  Sorry it’s so late (as usual!).

Here is our next discussion topic for Monday (December 8th).  The topic is retirement.  We’ll talk about life before and after retirement, and maybe a bit about retirement laws, policies, etc. in general in Japan.

As usual, please prepare at least two questions.  🙂

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!
