What I Learned At Australia
Having a 1 month study abroad, I learned a lot of things from Australia.
I ate a lot of Australia’s original foods. I ate fish and chips, some sort of meat, snacks like chocolate or else, ice cream with caramel and sprinkles on it, and I ate Australian sushi! There was a lot of different original sushi at there. The kaki age sushi was one of my favorite. I went some kind of restaurant, and ate some shrimp soup and rice, that’s was so tasty and good! At the beach, we ate an ice cream. That was really big for kids and Japanese people. But it was so yummy so I ate that all! My host mother was very surprised! There were a lot of delicious foods at there. But, most of all, I loved my host mother’s dinner and my host grandmother’s apple crumbles. That’s was nice and I loved it so much!
Australian school is different to Japanese schools. There were a lot of primary kids to high school guys in one school. At school class, you can choose what you want to study. I took some of the class, and I like the Art class the best. Well, some of the students and teachers were very kind to us! (But, not everyone.) We made friends at some classes, and talked at lunch time. Also, there were other Japanese study abroad students, so we talked with them too. At the class, it was hard to understanding the words for studying, but it was fun. At school, we can use a device at some of the classes, and drink some juice when they were thirsty. But one of the things I didn’t feel good was, the morning break time and lunch time. At that time, we need to eat at outside, and it was too cold at winter. But, I think the school was nice. I’d like to have a snack time in Japanese school. At lunch time, some of the students were eating noodles. We could buy that at Australian school store and it’s popular to them. I want to eat that at my school too if I could.
Now, I’ll talk about my greatest fun memory at there. First, my host family was so nice and lovely! They were so kind to me, and the food that my host family made was so delicious, and playing with kids were so fun that I didn’t want to go back to Japan… We spend a really good days at there. At every weekend, we went to a lot of places! We went to a Zoo to watch some Australian animals. And guess what, at that time I held a koala! It was so fluffy and cute! The other day, we went to the beach and ride a horse tractor! At there we walk the island and buy some souvenir for my family and my host brother and host father was playing the mini golf. That was so fun. At the last week of staying, at Monday I swim at the pool with host brother and sister. They were really good at swimming and it was so fun, I could forget the time. The few days later, we went to my host family’s friend’s farm. We ride on the tracks back space and watched the farm animals and wild kangaroo over there. After that, we went to my host grandma’s house and eat dinner. The last day of the study abroad, I cried because I was so sad to saying goodbye to my host family. They cheered me to smile. It was a really nice Australian life at there, and I want to go back there one day…
Australia is a good place to live. The weather is nice, the life is peaceful, people are nice, and foods are delicious. I spend a great days with learning English and cultures. There was a lot of hard thing to do, but that’s doesn’t matter. We just need to understand and find out the problem each other.
Thank you for reading my report.
