MY thought....

I like it here. If I could come back again at this point, I would, but I can’t. So, I will enjoy from the bottom of my heart.
I had many experiment here. Ji Won let me take me for a ride at night, I played Frisbee with many friends, I saw many pictures in the National Gallery of Art, I was asked to Nina’s home party, I made the police man angry and so on, I did not remember everything, however all happening makes me funny, happy and interesting.

I like Ji Won. He taught everything tome, particularly It is important to teach by using Japanese. I think I cannot speak English in only two weeks, but I can get the difference between Japanese culture and that of American, and I can understand the difficulty of speaking English. I will change the style of studying English, so I will be able to speak English at free.

P.S. while writing this blogging, I am sleepy.

Hello, Masa! Wake up! Hahaha...
I'm really glad to hear that you've enjoyed the program so much that you even wish you could stay longer. ^^

Also, I think it's good for you to realize what you need to do and learn through this program! I guess your English writing is pretty good, so what you need to do is to practice speaking English. ^^ Why don't you try not to talk to Ji Won in Japanese, and vice versa, you ask Ji Won to talk to you in Japanese? It'll help both of you learn the languages you study, Japanese and English!

I'm glad that you like it here, despite this awful weather. It's good that you have discovered a way to study English that will help you to use the language to communicate. And I am curious: how did you anger a policeman?

Hello, Masa.

I was touched by your very thoughtful post for August 13th.

I think you've had a very rich variety of experiences during your stay in the U.S. You summarized a number of them in this blog entry.

You're wise to realize that it isn't really possible to learn a language well in only two weeks, but you're also wise to realize that you can acquire a lot of valuable cultural information during an intensive trip to the U.S. and can also get a clearer idea of how to change your style of learning English to make it more productive. These are very important things to understand!

I think you're also very lucky to have been friends with Ji-won.

I wish you the very, very best!
