留学・研修現地レポート Report from Overseas

I accomplished my WINTER semester   

May . 2018

Approximately one month has passed since I graduated from winter session. In the winter session, I was happy I’ve had the opportunity to meet such wonderful teachers and classmates. My teacher likes to give us too much assignments; therefore, I was busier than Fall session. My teacher gave us a short story once every two weeks as a part of assignments. I am not good at reading English and reading comprehension; therefore, that was good for me. I charged in volunteer in last semester. Fortunately, I got an excellent volunteering award. Doing volunteer made me more active and gave me a lot of knowledge. I’ll contribute to volunteer club next session too.

     During spring vacation after graduation, I went on a trip to Orland in U.S. with my friend. The weather in Orland was hot and humid. I was in Canada where had still snow, so I was surprised about a gap of temperature. The main in our trip was to go to Walt Disney World. There are 6 parks, but we went to 4 parks. My friend loves Disney; therefore, she decided about our schedule how we could go around efficiently. Each park has a lot of things which I was attracted. Especially I was satisfied with watching some big shows. It was so magnificent!!!!! I got other enjoyment in Disney which is collecting autograph. This time, we got more than 20 autographs. Thanks to her, it was a lot of fun for me in Orland though we run into some trouble during this trip. In addition, I could release my stress which I had. I want to go there again if I have an opportunity.

      As soon as I went back to Kingston, I moved to new homestay. This was the first time to change. New family is very talkative and always makes me smile. One day, she taught me how to cook Fujita. It was very good and easier than I thought. I think I will have more chance to learn how to cook anything from my new host mother. She often invites me to go shopping on our foot. At that time, she talked about her family and her neighbors. Usually, I am too shy to talk with new people; however, I didn’t feel nervous.

     I had a lot of fun in this mouth; however, I also had a sad thing for me. One of my best friends in Canada went back to Chine because she is in long Summer vacation now. She is a university student, so our holiday time is different. I miss her so much. She always stimulated me to do anything. Thanks to her, I could overcome a lot of things I faced. We can’t see each other as much as we did in Kingston. One day, I will go to Chine or Kingston to see her. Of course, to enjoy real Chinese dish too!

     Soon I’m coming back to the school. I am looking forward to seeing new teacher and classmates. Before resuming the school, I participated volunteer in local community which provides low cost meals for poor people. It was first time to contribute by myself, so I was nervous. But people in that community is so nice, and I got a chance to talk with some people. I want to contribute for them again.

Next session is my last session. I WILL DO MY BEST to have no regret in my life in Canada afterward. In addition, I will try new things without hesitation.
