NZからのメッセージ ニュージーランドへ留学中の仁高生から届いたメッセージをご紹介いたします。メッセージは英語と日本語で掲載しております。


Hi guys!  I’m Emika from Bream Bay College.  It’s been a month since I came to NZ.  Even in this short time, I have experienced a lot of things, so I would like to write about some of them.
Firstly, I went on a snorkelling trip with year 13 students to a place called Reotahi, which is a place that has a beautiful beach.  It took a while to get there by van from my school.  The water was so clean that I could clearly see the school of fish, shrimp and crab.  I was caught up watching the fish, so I accidently breathed from my nose and almost choked myself.  (Haha.)  Anyway, at lunch we had a little picnic.  I ate sandwiches, sausage rolls, pies and some cakes!  They were yummy.
Next, I will write about my host family.  I stay with my host father Kurt, host mother Michelle, two lovely host sisters Summer and Karli, a dog, a cat, 4 chickens, 3 ducks and 2 sheep!!  My host family often goes to the beach because my host father and Summer like surfing so much and my host mother likes to walk along the beach.  I went surfing with them the other day and I was able to stand on a surf board for the first time!  That was really fun.  Also, my host family likes to cook, so I often cook dinner with them.  The dishes we cook are always so delicious that I feel like eating a lot!  I sometimes bake some cookies with my host sisters to bring to school.  Three times a week, Karli goes to gymnastics in town.  While waiting for her to finish, I go to a grocery store with my host mother to buy some food. Going to the grocery store is very fun and interesting because I can learn many new words by looking around the store.  I think that going shopping is another good way of learning English.  The area inside the store is so huge that it would take ages to look around the whole place.  Spending time talking with them is fun and I’m enjoying my homestay so much!
Lastly, I will write about my school life.  As I wrote above, I go to Bream Bay College.  I take English, math, fabrics, art, hospitality, dance and ESOL.  I have always liked to dance, so when I knew that there was a dance class I was really excited about it.  In the dance class, I can learn many kinds of dance, so it is very interesting for me.  I also like hospitality because I can cook different types of dishes.  The best dish I made was frittata muffin.  It was delicious, so you should try it one day!  Now, I’m hanging out with a group of kiwi students at school.  They are very talkative and interesting people.  Talking with them is so much fun.  I can learn new words every day by talking with them and listening to their conversation. 
Time flies so fast that it will soon be March.  I’ll do my best so as not to have any regrets and to make more wonderful memories with my friends and my host family in NZ.  I would like to thank my family, teachers, and my friends who have supported me for letting me have a fabulous time in this country.  I will try harder with Emika Smile!!!
Thank you for reading my essay.
Big Love,
Emika Tsubota
