Finished Midterm
Nov . 2016
It is pasted one month since I stayed in America. Recently, I have finished taking midterm, and I prepared for it. I took this midterm for the first time, I thought it was not difficult for me. Maybe, because I’m a English department student and a senior student. But I can’t stop studying hard because I want to learn English more than before. That results were not bad, however, I can still improve my English.

Now, I’m learning how to write the paragraph like brainstorming, outlining and time order in my writing class. I realized that I didn’t use these ways when I wrote paragraph. In listening & speaking class, I learned r/l pronunciation. I know how to pronounce, but sometimes I mistake that pronounce. So, it is helpful for me to improve my pronunciation skills. Also, I’m interested in how to pronounce vocabulary. I had a project of traditional Japanese music in speaking & listening class. I researched it, but it was a little bit difficult topic, and I regretted for it because I didn’t understand Japanese culture well. However, when I researched it, I could understand about it, and I knew traditional culture of Japan.

On weekend, I joined Halloween party with my friends, went east side of Portland. I discovered advantage of Portland. I have been to Portland before, but I didn’t know where place is good or recommended place. Now, I know it. I want to explore Portland more. In addition, I go to PSU (Portland State University) every Friday and join Japanese Table. This table is talking with PSU student who learn Japanese and using Japanese. I wanted to teach or talk in Japanese to student. It was really fun. I could make friends in America. I think this experience is good for me.

November has a lot of events, so I’d like to enjoy my school life!
