Definitely my mind has expanded since I came here.
Mar . 2013
Time flies so fast. Three of Chikushi university students will leave here soon. Finally the weather became better recently. I was surprised at lots of snow in Kingston, even its already end of March. According to my host father, it's unusual.
This month, I did some presentation, an essay and some grammar. I surveyed about the differences university life between Canada and other country. Queen's university has many international students so I asked them about each university life. It was really interesting to know a lot of differences. For example, the differences attitude of professor was totally different from Canada and Asia. And, depends on country, it is different how many credit they need to graduate. By this survey, I learned much countrys merit and demerit of study. I would like to use each countrys benefit in Japan.
In grammar class, I wrote an essay for the first time. We had to write an essay by comparison style. I hope I can write a much better essay next session than this sessions one.
In lab class, we often listened to some academic lecture. After that, we discussed about these topics. Sometimes it was difficult for me to catch up a word what people said. Im not good at picking an important word.
As I wrote the last report, I have been reading a novel. Although its difficult to understand everything, I like to read a novel because I can memorize new vocabulary easily. To improve my vocabulary, I would like to use words which I learned lately even if I can explain that more easily words.
In activity of school of English, we went to maple madness. We went to a kind of forest and we saw the process of maple syrup. I was happy to experience the Canadian life. Since this month, I have joined a group which we call culture engagement group.
Sometimes I feel nervous because everyone speak English well (they are Queens students). However, I can improve my listening skill by conversation.
Actually I felt a lot of culture shock in this month. Although Im happy to study with many international students, I felt some stress to them as well. Its difficult to solve this problem because its not their fault but their culture. To survive a culture shock, I also need to get used to their culture. One of my Korean friends told me that Japanese students are too strict for themselves. Anyway, I like to listen to a lot of opinion from my friends. Definitely my mind has expanded since I came here.
