My long school holiday went by so fast, and my school life came again.
I went on a trip to Sydney for a week at the end of November.
I met a lot of Europeans especially German and learned their cultures.They are very conscious of the environment. My friends ate every last grain of rice and discussed about the environment. They were younger than me, but I felt like they were older than me.
In the tour, I went to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Blue Mountains and Bondi Beach.
( Bondi Beach)
We went to the Harbour Bridge, upon approach there were a few stairs to climb, I was scared because I could see the ground from between the steps.
After we climbed the stairs, the walkway became straight at the top. During that time, the guide told us interesting histories of the bridge, the island and architectures which we could see from the bridge, so I wasn’t so scared at that time.
Unfortunately, it was cloudy, but I could see many buildings, the ocean and Opera House. Despite the bad weather, it was nice view!

At Blue Mountain, theres a lake and a waterfall which has a color of emerald green and it was so beautiful to see
We went into a cave where there were stalactites illuminated by many colors. It was amazing!

I enjoyed the time in Sydney! If I go to Sydney next time, I want to go to those places again!
I also went to an international school for two weeks in the middle of January.
There were many people of different ages ranging from 16 to around 40 years old. I was surprised when I heard some people were already married and had kids.
The class was quite different from Japan and Australian schools.
We learned about grammar, words, listening, writing, reading and speaking.
You may think it’s the same as Japanese class, but we spoke English with different people around the world in this class. But it’s still different from Australian schools.
After, we played Kahoot about the grammar, so we could study it by playing the game. It was fun, and I won twice!
On the last day, we had a game party. All the tables were put together in a room, and we sat down to any seats randomly. My table group were playing cards and Jenga. It was so fun that I couldn’t stop laughing!
It was nice to spend two weeks at the school!
This term is the last term, so I’ll enjoy my last school life in Australia!
Thank you for reading at the end. See you next month!
