Winter in Kingston is really beautiful.
Feb . 2015
Winter in Kingston is really beautiful. Now everything is covered by snow. Today's temperature was almost -25 degrees, and I felt like my nose is going to freeze when I went outside. However I enjoy this weather. Two weeks ago, I went skating on the frozen Ontario lake with my classmates. I couldn't imagine that the lake is frozen, and people can skate. It was crazy, amazing and fun.
The winter session started on January. This is my last session, so I really want to do my best in everything. I am now in 140 and 150 class which is for university preparation. My teacher expects me to be same as university students, so I need to work really hard on my study. I have Core class, Spoken class, Lab class, and ECCO class. In Core class, I usually study grammar, read text book. Next week, I have midterm exams, and I am going to write an essay about Eating Disorders. It should be comparison In Spoken class, I am learning a lot about how to do presentation. I really like this class, because presentation skills is very important in our life. I need these skills in many situations such as workplace, daily conversations with my family or friends. In Lab class, I usually listen to university lecture or interview or News. Listening materials are sometimes 30 minutes long, so it is very hard to keep concentrate to listen. In ECCO class, I am learning hot to follow the instructions on the Internet. My teacher gives me one exercise every week, so I need to do it on my laptop. It means if I don't have any questions about exercise, I don't have to go to ECOO class.
Not only studying English at school, I am trying to do a lot of things outside of classes. I join activities to practice English with friends and have fun, I volunteered in Japanese class at Queen's University, I hung out lots of friends who are not Japanese. I am very happy that I am in Canada to study English and I am learning a lot, and having lots of fun. This weekend I and my classmates are going to Ottawa to ski!!!! I am so excited about it.
I have been in Canada for five months now, and I am used to life in here. However I think I should be more careful about what is going on around me, and be aware of dangerous things, and try to be in a safe situation always to protect my life because I am in different country and I shouldn't be forgetting this.
