English training was a wonderful time and a very special experience for me.
2017 Short-term English House Report(April 7)
This year, I participated in the Short-term English House program, a regular event of the English Support Lounge. Seven students and four university staff leaders took part and the trip ran from March 23 to 25.
A great environment!!!
Great group members!!!
A special impression!!!
To be honest, I haven’t been so good at English but through traveling I have gotten onto good terms with a lot of friends and English teachers so I thought I’d like to join in again and decided to participate.
For the three days we communicated in English most of the time. I could make myself understood, but it wasn’t at all easy to speak.
The cottage where we stayed was very fashionable and I felt at home. We played frisbee, listened to music, did a skit, made a campfire, and made all our meals ourselves.
We stayed up talking the whole of the second night so I was very sleepy for the third day. As soon as I arrived home from the English training camp at three, I just fell asleep and slept right through until the morning of the next day .
It was great fun and the three days went by in no time!
In one way or another, the three days of our stay were full of smile. The funniest was when we played flying disk but smashed up the Frisbee. The sight really creased us up, it was so funny. Another high point was our all-night talk. It was great fun although it hampered activities a little the next day, which was slightly a pity.
Anyway, I made a lot of friends and I certainly want to go next year too.
This training camp was a very good experience and left me with a lot of memories. This is a picture of us all having dinner together. We cooked all our own meals at this camp and everyone took part. Eating felt more enjoyable than usual because normally I eat dinner by myself.
The memory which remains most is when I smashed the frisbee. I hit it at full force against a tree and the center dropped out . But that only made the frisbee golf more fun.
Looking back , this English camp taught me the pleasure of talking in English. From now on , I want to make a big effort to speak English well.
The event that left an impression on me was cooking meals with everyone. I don’t usually have this chance to make breakfast, lunch and dinner together with friends so it was a fascinating experience for me.
An added challenge was that all of the recipes were written in English. It was difficult for us to read and understand them so we just had to imagine what we were supposed to cook from the ingredients and from the menu instructions. These cooking times make a good memory for me.
I was kept tuned to English all the time for three days and two nights. As a result, I found I could also understand the talking between the teachers, although there were still a lot of parts that I couldn’t follow . From now on, I’d like to increase my vocabulary power and then participate again in the training next year .
