In about two months, we are going to Boston. I’m sure each and every one of you have a lot of expectations as well as some worries.
Like you, I expect to greatly improve my English skills in Boston, by doing much more than just studying in class or studying for exams. I would like to challenge myself to be active, to go outside the classroom, to communicate with people in Boston.
Like you, I also expect to experience American culture first hand, learn the differences between Japan and America, and broaden my way of thinking.
Like you, I want to learn as much about America as possibole, including its history, people and social issues. I especially look forward to visiting the great museums in and around Boston.
I, however, also have some worries like you do. I worry about not being able to speak English well. I worry that I may remain passive and dependent. I also worry about small things like keeping my room tidy, eating healthy, etc. But I’m determined to conquer all my fears and weaknesses so that I will be who I want to be when I come back to Japan.
Studying abroad for an extended period of time is not easy, but let’s be strong and make the best of it together.
Finally, we would like to express our deep gratitude to all the support and help we have received from our teachers and families.
