It's been one month since I arrived in Canada
Oct . 2014
It's been one month since I arrived in Canada. This is my first time to be in Canada and I am having really good time so far. I am living in a homestay house and there are host parents, host sister, host brother,house mate and one cat. They are really nice to me and I have a lot of opportunities to speak in English. On weekend they took me to Ottawa. There is a parliament building in Ottawa, and it was beautiful! I would like to visit Ottawa again. I think now is really pretty season in Canada because the weather is really nice to go out, and all the leaves are changing color which is beautiful. I love it.

Talking about school, I took the exam on the first day of school to decide which class I would be in. I am studying in 132 class. In my class, we debate, discuss a lot with classmates. I like it because it is really different type of class from the one in Japan. I have to think about topic deeply and give my opinion with reasons. One thing I really like about my class is that teacher respects our interests. Everyone decided each one topic that we were interested in, and we are doing a lot of research about own topic. I choose Global Warming for the topic. It is really difficult topic, but I am learning a lot of new things about it in English. This semester, we have lots of Japanese students, but my class has many students from other country. We have students from Japan, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Syria, China and Taiwan. They are really motivated and I am learning not only English but also different culture from them.
We have volleyball competition in end of this semester, so our class started to practice after class. I really want our class to win! I am studying hard and exercising a lot, so I really enjoy everyday in Canada!!!

I really love my life in Canada, but not only good things happened to me. Sometimes I miss my family and friends in Japan. I took wrong bus to go to school and got lost. My computer got a virus and I couldn't use it. However, I learned a lot of important things. I am not alone here. I made really good friends who care about me, cheer me up and help me. When I was feeling really bad, my host mother hugged me, and I realized that I have a new family here. And of course the importance of my family in Japan. Sometimes it is difficult to live in abroad, but it teaches me a lot of things. I am happy to experiencing all the good and bad things.


Next weekend, we have a school trip to Niagara falls!!!! I can't wait to see it!!!!
In October, we have a break week, so I am planning to go to Toronto, Montreal and Quebec. I am super excited to go all the places and have good time.
