4/11 4pm Session
Today we introduced ourselves to each other and talked about our home country, families, hobbies, travels and food.
Why are you learning English?
I want to travel to other foreign countries
Australia is famous for their beautiful coastlines and beaches. There are no beautiful beach near here, but the next prefecture Hyogo has nice beaches
Have you heard of Sydney before? Yes
There are many cafes near Hinase. ‘Stella’ is one that has nice smoothies
Where do you live? Imbe
Where did you grow up? Katakami but I live in Imbe now.
Imbe might have more people than Hinase. Imbe has a lot of pottery to see. Imbe does not have famous cafes but I love one of the cafes there near Imbe station.
Sometimes I will go out to eat but most of the time I will cook. My favourite food is baked meat which I cook in the oven.
My high school had 300 students and in my class there were 40 students.
Do you miss high school? I miss high school and still talk to my high school friends.
What do your high school friends do for work?
I had graduation ceremonies after University. I was part of the volleyball club at University. I recently started skateboarding as well.
In japan when they graduate they wear a Kimono, but in Melbourne, graduates just wear robes.
I studied medical science but found it challenging. When I was a child, I watched medical dramas which is why I chose to study medical science. I have seen “House”” and really liked it.I tried studying English by watching western dramas. I listen to English and read Japanese subtitles. A lot if the time I don’t understand what they’re saying because they talk very fast.
“I want to skateboard more”. Imbe doesn’t have a skateboarding park so it is hard for me to practise. I would like to go to a skateboard park because the pavement there is smoother. The pavements near my house is bumpy.
What are your hobbies?
What is your favourite hobby? Skateboarding
Have you been to any concerts?
Why did you start learning how to skateboard? Every winter I go snowboarding, so I like to practise with skateboarding now. I had an operation on my wrist after I broke it one time
