HELLO, Mr. Arakawa!!
I stayed in Australia for about a week. Here it is such a beautiful place. I stayed first at host family’s house for 3 days. I could spend very comfortable days, because they were very kind to me. They took me to the place where you can see animals. I saw kangaroos and koalas there. Also, they taught me how to play table tennis. It’s really fun.
I moved to my second host family’s house on February 2. I have been to school since February 2nd. My school buddy is Maggie. She is very kind and cute. I have been helped by her every day. My favorite subjects in Australia are Textile and Japanese. I made hair band in textile class. Japanese class is very interesting because teachers talk while mixing Japanese and English.
Also, February 7th was swimming carnival. Local students were wearing house-color clothes. My house color is yellow, so I wore a yellow T-shirt. I could spend good days with my Australian friends!!
Dear Mr. Kamakura,
I am staying in Australia for 1 week. This week, I had a good time and enjoyed going to school. Before starting school, I went to many places such as a park, shopping centre, and school with my host family. Especially, playing cricket and having BBQ was my emotional memory. I have never played cricket, however my host family from Sri Lanka taught me how to play it. After that, we enjoyed BBQ together. We roasted chickens and sausages! They were delicious. Then I helped my family with cooking.
Today, Wednesday 5th February, Lakeside college Pakenham students and I had P.E class. I ran 1500m around the lake. And I got the 1st place!! The record was 4 minutes 57 seconds. A Meiho student have already achieved a great thing!!
Hi, Mr. Kamakura.
1 week has passed since we came to Australia. My host family has two people, but two grandchildren and their parents live next door. My host family gave me presents today. They are very kind and interesting!! And, the garden of this house is very large. A lot of flowers are blooming and a lot of birds come there. I’m having fun here every day.
School life is so fun, too. Classes are difficult but I enjoyed playing hockey for the first time in PE class. And, I already made a lot of friends in school. Everyone always talks to me. They are very friendly. I have a friend, not only Australian but also Chinese. She is very good at English because she has lived in Australia for 3 years. In break time, I sometimes play card games in the library with her. I’m glad to be friends with people from various countries through English. I strongly believe I want to be able to speak English better. I want to enjoy life in Australia in the future, too.
Hello, Mr. Kamakura.
There were so many fun things that I don’t know what to write! It’s too many to write!
I enjoying Australia very much! However, I often make some mistakes. My first day in Australia, I told my host mother, ”I’ll wash the dishes.” And I ended up washing the dishes. I didn’t know the way to wash the dishes is different from Japan. As a result of not understanding how to wash dishes, I used too much water. My host family noticed I used too much water, but they didn’t get angry. They were forgiving my mistake. After that, they kindly taught me how to wash dishes in Australia.
Of course, there were lots of fun things as well as failures. One of the good memories is karate. I go to karate dojo three times a week with my host family. In addition, I enjoy many sports such as cricket, football, and basketball with them.
Secondly, I ate a lot of delicious food! I like Australian food. Some days ago, I ate kangaroo. It was delicious! After that, I saw many living kangaroos for the first time.
They were so cute. But for some reason, I became hungry.
Thirdly, already, I made a lot of friends! There are my friends in the host school and karate dojo. I have lunch with my friends almost every day. We enjoy cross-cultural exchange together.
Thus, I am busy every day in Australia. On the other hand, I feel fulfilled every day!
It was a busy day today, too. Today, I did volunteer activity for preparing my host town’s festival. I’m tired but I feel so good. From tomorrow on, I will continue to have busy days, too.
