Diary in English♡On the 18th of Sep.
Today was the first day of the language school. I was nervous because there were only a few Japanese students. I understood that before I came here, but most of the students talked with people of the same nationality. I was anxious about whether I could make friends here or not because I cannot express what I think in English.
In the orientation walking tour, a guy spoke to me in Japanese. He was Japanese! I met my first Japanese person since I came here! We try to speak in English generally, and I was relieved to meet a Japanese guy.
I took a test and interview to determine our classes, then the lesson starts tomorrow!
Diary in English♡On the 19th of Sep.
Surprisingly, I met a Japanese guy who I saw yesterday in my classroom. We were determined to be in the same level class! It was an upper intermediate level. Actually, the grammar I learned in the class was easy for me, but I couldn't catch what my classmates and teacher were saying. Especially since the students from Europe's pronunciation was so different from mine and difficult to catch. I was not sure if the class matched my level or not. When I was about to go back home, the school principal spoke to me. I said, 'I think the class was so difficult for me.' But he said, 'Come on, it will be fine soon!'
Then I came home and took a rest. I decided to go out walking because it was quite a pleasant day! It's unusual in the UK, right? There is a large great park near my home. I went there on foot and walked around the park. I like nature, so I felt very relaxed. I walked to see the famous bridge in this city. The view was really nice! I enjoyed taking pictures of the view.
In the evening, I went to a "Welcome drink." I went there with a Japanese guy and met the other Japanese girls. They were students. After that, I found my classmates and tried to say "Hi" to them! I was a little nervous because I was not sure I could talk with them, but I could chat with them thanks to beer! I told them about my anxiety, and they said to me, "Oh, it's OK. You don't need to change the class! It will be better! Don't worry!" I was really happy to hear that and decided to do my best at the class.
Thank you for your corrections Oli and Jason.A on italki :)

I joined "the welcome drinking" and drank two glasses of beer. It was free! I have to do my homework and review from now.— hina#YMS2017 (@hina_m_1) 2017年9月19日
I was able to speak to my classmates thanks to beer! I told about my anxiety about my level (I think the class is difficult for me .)— hina#YMS2017 (@hina_m_1) 2017年9月19日
And they told me that I should remain this class and I'll be fine soon. I was happy and relieved.— hina#YMS2017 (@hina_m_1) 2017年9月19日
