I want to do everything which I can do only here.
Feb . 2013
Time goes so fast. The weather has been becoming warmer and warmer, it still around four degrees though.

We keep doing summarize in newspaper articles. Compared with last month, I became understand smoothly about that a little bit though. I need a skill which read something faster and also need more vocabulary because it's too many to understand what they say. To improve my vocabulary, I started to read a novel which is more than 400 pages. I asked my friend who can speak English very fluently about how my English can improve. According to her, we can figure out what words authors often use so we can remember some words much easier. At the same time, my core teacher gave us an assignment which choose a novel and read it. Every weekend, we have to summary about a novel. I'm not good at reading something so much but I'll try it to improve my English. In spoken class, we often do presentation. It helps us to speak English more attractively. My discussion class has been talking about interesting topics so everyone talks a variety of opinions. Unlike last semester, almost all students respect each opinion.

During a break week, I had a lot of experience even though I was in Kingston. I really like here because it’s small town so easy to make friends. That’s funny whenever I talk to strangers, they know my host mother. Going out somewhere helps my listening and speaking. I also hung out with exchange students from Japan. Everyone is different major in Queen’s university. We talked about Japan which deserves to share with more Japanese. If I were not go abroad, I'm sure I wouldn't think about Japan like now. I could know many kinds of job as well. They encouraged me to do next step. I think it is one of the advantages of study abroad to meet much kind of Japanese in another country because we can think about Japan objectively and compare Japan and Canada (foreign country) more specific. I came here to study English but I also need to know about Japan more and more. Actually thanks to them, I have changed the way to tell something. Before now, I had just focus on tell something correctly. It means I hadn’t cared about construction and correct grammar. But now, I can be conscious of them than before. I also can be a person who uses a lot of kind of grammar because I know exactly how to use each grammar but don’t use them actually so I would like to talk to as much as many people for that.

This session left only one month though, I want to do everything which I can do only here.
