Diary in EnglishOn 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 EnglishOn 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 :)

というわけで、学校が始まりました!

正直、グラマーは簡単に感じるのですが、リスニングとスピーキングがとっても難しい……。リスニングについては、特にヨーロッパ出身のクラスメイトの発音は耳に慣れていないこともあってさっぱり聞き取れません💦韓国やアジア出身のクラスメイトの英語はまだ比較的理解できるのですが……💦

 

初日に少し落ち込んでしまった私ですが、イギリスらしからぬとっても良いお天気だったこともあって、気分転換に近所の公園までお散歩してきました。

徒歩で行ける範囲にこんなに素晴らしい景色が広がっていて、幸せです
