【学校情報】2A生徒 留学報告(オーストラリア)

Almost seven months have passed since I came to Australia. I experienced a lot of things this month.

About the exchange student camp:
I participated in the mid year AIIU camp with nine other Japanese exchange students. The location was Surfers Paradise at the Gold Coast. I was really happy to see my friends and our support officers. I thought my English skills have improved because I could understand what my friends and my support officers spoke. We did some activities, ate a lot of countries' food, visited many places, and had a birthday party for my friend and me. We ate a birthday cake and BBQ food. My support officer gave us birthday gifts. One of them was a bookmark. Both of us liked to read, so we were really excited. And I talked with my support officer for a long time because I wanted to know how much I could speak English. She was really surprised how much my English was improved.

About my birthday
July fifth was my birthday. My host family gave me a lot of presents. They were a stuffed kangaroo toy, Australian strap, my favourite sweets, colourful cake, letter, drawings they were from host grand children and Australia outback spectacular’s ticket. I went to a show with my host parents at night. The show includes a lot of Australian cultural things and surprises. I had a wonderful time. I really appreciate my host family.

About unicycle
I went to Brisbane city with my host father and my friend. I rode my unicycle in the city, so a lot people were surprised. Another day, I went to the beach with my host father to ride my unicycle. We walked 20km. I was happy to show and amuse a lot of people through unicycle, so I would like to do like this again.

I can stay in Australia for four more months. I have to do my best and work really hard. I do not want to regret myself, so I will talk with a lot of people and study English more. I really appreciate my family, my host family and many people who have supported me. Thank you.

It has been six months since I came to New Zealand. I am really surprised how fast time passed and worried about my English.
Term 2 was over and my friends went back to their home countries. One of them is from Netherlands and the other is from Germany.They spoke English very fluently and had been kind to me like their younger sister. So I cried a lot during the last week. However, I was happy to have such nice relationship with them even though we were from different countries and spoke different languages.

I changed one of the subjects which I took and I got some nice friends.They helped me all the time when I was in a trouble because I did not know anything about this class. One of the friends who was in the same class before I changed the subject told me that what we were doing was hard and confusing even for her, so I was doing well.

I have two months left to go back to Japan. Some friends told me my English has improved, but I do not think my English is good because it sounds still Japanese. I have many chances to speak English, so I will try not to miss these chances and improve my English.

学校ではperiod2とperiod3の間にあるmorning teaの時間に留学生がそれぞれの国の食べ物を持ち寄ってシェアして、みんなで「いただきます」と日本語で言って食べました。シェアするのは2回目ですが、1回目と違うものが沢山あって、友達がこれはどんな食べ物だよと説明してくれて、お互いの国の食べ物についても知ることが出来たのでよかったです。

Invercargillは南の島の特に下の地域ですごく寒くスキー場で雪を見ることができました。Quinn’s townというところに行った時ルージュという小さな車のような乗り物に乗って坂を降りるという乗り物も経験しました。とても楽しかったですが、手が凍るように冷たくなりました。
