Today is the first day in this study abroad program in Australia. I was nervous until I met my host family. But, when I talked, she was very kind, and I felt relaxed. After that, we went shopping at the supermarket with my host family. I was surprised at the size of the shopping car and products.
Also, the house has a very large garden and swimming pool. It is a one-story house, unlike a Japanese house. I ate host mother’s favorite seasoned dish, but I didn’t like it.

Today, the first day of studying abroad in Australia, I visited Australia for the first time. When we arrived in Canterbury College, we looked around the campus in the orientation session. While we were walking, some local students waved their hands at us and said, “Hello.” I was impressed with their friendliness.
When I took Mrs. Bonica’s classes, I was so tired that I couldn’t concentrate. I found myself feeling uneasy sometimes, but I will work as hard as possible.

It was my first time to go abroad on a plane with my friends, so we kept talking and didn’t sleep much. But once we arrived at Brisbane Airport, we regretted not sleeping enough. Then, on our way to Canterbury College, we saw few houses, and everything else was just trees. Once we arrived at Canterbury College, we had a meat pie and sausage rolls, both are Australian typical food, and they were very tasty. After we had a delicious food, we went to a school tour. The school was so big that we couldn’t see all the classrooms. After the tour, we met Australian animals and reptiles. I was able to touch them.
After school, our host mother came to pick us up. Our host mother is from the Philippines. She is a very nice person and we call her “mom”. She had told us that our host father won’t be at home, but I was surprised when he came home. He told us he would take us to a market tomorrow after school, where we can eat Australian food. I’m looking forward to it.

This morning,I was surprised to find Reina was in the living room. I ate yogurt, bacon and eggs and cornflakes for
breakfast. Then, we picked up Hiroki and went to school. On the way, I came across an interesting bird on the road.
I arrived at school and met my buddy Caleb. He asked me some questions. Such as what my favorite subjects were, what I did yesterday and about my future. When I said “I wanna be a public servant, he said, “that’s pretty cool. I wanna be a lawyer because I like debating.”
Today’s first class was double English. I learned about “Romeo and Juliet”. It was hard because it uses a lot of old English words but Caleb told me their meaning so I could follow the class. When reading aloud, he acted the part of Romeo. He was good at acting and praised by the teacher.
The next class was double physics. At first, its contents were easy but it grew more difficult. However, our teacher explained it so I could understand it easily.
The last class was P.E. and we played volleyball. I wasn’t good at volleyball but Caleb supported me and I could enjoy it. When I went home, I slept right away. Today’s dinner was fish and chips. The fish was especially^ yummy so I wanted to eat more but there wasn’t so much. If I have the chance to eat it again, I will eat a lot!

Today, Reina’s host mother took Reina, Taifu and me out for the day.
It was lovely weather and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.
First, we went to a beach and we could walk in the sea as it was low tide. We walked 2km to an island. It was good experience because it is very lovely view. When I was walking, my cap flew off in the wind and got dirty.
After that we went to a park which had a lot of nature. There were many children in the park. Reina’s host mother gave us hotdogs when we sat and enjoyed the view. They were very delicious. After that we went home by the car.
Today’s dinner is fish and chips. It is my favorite food in Australia. It was very nice.
Today, I was very tired but it was a very nice day.
I’m looked forward to going to the Gold Coast tomorrow.

I went to the Gold Coast today.The ocean was very beautiful and I was able to buy a lot of souvenirs. That said, while there, I had a problem- my beach sandals broke.
I ate fish and chips for lunch. It was delicious and I was able to see a lot of pelicans there too. The pelican show was so powerful.
It was a great way to spend my last weekend day in Australia.

Today, we had ESL lessons for whole day.
We had a new teacher and we introduced about ourselves at first. We learned English grammar, and had some mini games. Our teacher told us about the problems of the Australian environment and eco systems. There are a lots of animals that were brought here by humans. They eat native animals and cause serious problems the same as in Japan. After that, we played some card games. We could enjoy playing card games in English.
When I went home, my host mother made a chocolate cake for me. My host mother often makes cakes. All of them are very delicious, but the chocolate one is the one that I like the best. After that, we watched a movie.My host mother and I watch a movie after dinner everyday. I really enjoy it.
We have only three days left. I want to enjoy my time left in Australia.

Today, we went to many places!
First, we went Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. We could see many koalas. I did know that koala walk the ground. We also saw many Australian animals.
Next we went to The University of Queensland. This university is so very big and we could see many buildings at the university. The names of people who invested the university were written on the walls of the buildings.
Finally, we went to Mt Coot-tha. The view was so beautiful! I want to see the view again!
Today was so exciting! I won’t forget the events of today!

Today, we went to EKKA. It was lots of fun. There were some rides. Haruka and Reina rode an attraction which was like a huge swing. I also heard that the boys rode a lot of rides. Ekka is much larger than I thought and it was very crowded there like Harajuku on Sundays. There were also a lot of food stands and I ate some food and some sweets which was nice.
After I got home, I watched the movie “君の名は (your name)” in English with my host family. I wanted to show them Tokyo in Japan (where I live in), and the movie was very useful to show them life in Tokyo because it shows many actual places such as Shinjuku and Tokyo Tower. After watching the movie, my host father host mother said that they’d like to visit Japan. I was glad to hear that and I hope that will be able to do this.

Today, we had class integration in the morning. We had English class. They were working for some tasks.
In the afternoon, we had an animal encounter activity. We touched a lots of animals; there were a dingo, a kangaroo, snakes, lizards, a wombat and an alligator. We had snakes wind around our necks. It was pretty cute. We all enjoyed it very much. Also, we celebrated Reina’s birthday. Mr. Paul prepared a cake for us and we ate it. It was really nice. Happy birthday Reina !!
I watched the movie, “ The Intern “ with my host family. It was a really nice movie. I think watching movies is good to improve my English. There are 8 days left in Australia. I want to enjoy my time left in Australia and learn more things.
