Goodbye and Have a Nice Summer Vacation!

GC1 Writers -

Thank you for all of your hard work throughout the semester. I know that writing is very difficult but each of you had an excellent attitude and worked hard at improving your writing skills. Like speaking a foreign language, writing in a foreign language takes lots of practice. We have practiced a lot this semester and I hope you continue to practice and write as much as you can!

Please feel free to continue to write on this blog. I will check it occasionally and try to give you comments or feedback on your writing (this is an excellent way to keep practicing!).

Keep up the good work, have a safe and happy summer break, and see you in October!

My good? future plan

Now, I have five goals or purposes about future. Some goals are about job or abilities, and others are about hobbies.

My most important future goal is to find a job. I have not found the job which I want yet. So I want to find and get the job during studying Osaka YMCA.

Then, my another important goal is speaking English fluently. I am not good at speaking well. I study hard in this year and when I go to the countries like America and Australia, I want to speak English very well with local people.

My favorite TV show

My favorite TV shows are Sekai Ururun Taizai-ki[World Ururun diary] and K1[or other martialarts show]. But recently, I don't watched TV show so much.

At first, I introduce Sekai Ururun Taizai-ki[short vasion]. This program shows a many kind of areas in the world. In every time, TV talent goes and stays in the world, communicates the local people, and experiences a lot of cultural things. On the program’s way, main members give quizes about the area’s life or culture. When I was a high school student, I often watch this TV show. It gives me many things about the world.

At second, I like martial arts. So I often watch that TV show. This is K1 Dynamite that is showed at every New Year’s Eve. It is the martial arts event like festival. Many fighters fight in some kind of rules.

This movie is Genki Sudo’s game that was last fight. He is called “Transformed Trickstar” and did colorful and unusual performance every times. Some people like his performance and others dislike. This entrance performance is very great but I think he spent a lot of money to do this.

You don't have to watch all. Please watch only entrance performance.
