アメリカ研修 National School Walkout
National School Walkout
National School Walkout for 17 minutes at 10 am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress' inaction in response to the gun violence.
Today about 100 students of Woodstock Academy took part in this event. Some students wore T-shirts printed “Enough”. Gun control is a big social issue. After the silent prayer for the souls of the victims, students focused on the next election. All they have to do is to register and vote. I thought one small step for student, one giant leap for American society.
Q What did you do on snow day or on weekend?
Ayaka said, “I was surprised that snow was piled up at the speed I had never seen in Japan.”
Mayuka said, “My host family has Amazon Echo. They can talk with Alexa. Alexa can turn down the light. I was surprised and excited.“
Masaaki said, “I have never played billiard. It’s so exciting. Today is apple pie day.”
Toshikazu said, “I think making cookies easy. I painted it a bright color and a dark color. “
Rina said, “Outside, dogs like snow too much. At home, I made an apple pie but cinnamon was strong.”
Ikuma said, “We went to Boston. I went to Quincy market. There are many kinds of shops and restaurants. Clam chowder is famous and popular in Boston. They were very tasty. I played hockey for the first time. I enjoyed it. “
Q How is your school? What do you think about American school life?
Yuga said,” American high school has freedom, while Japanese high school doesn’t have freedom.”
Hiroki said, “At first, I was nervous, but my buddy Lauren was very kind, so I enjoyed having fun in class.”
Kohei said, “Yoga is very interesting. I want to do Yoga in Japan. “
Rio said, “American class was casual unlike in Japan. All the students were having fun with each other. On snow day, I made apple pies and Easter eggs. I made it for the first time and it was a lot of fun.”
Rika said, “When we gave presentation, I was nervous. I was happy to see audience enjoying our presentation. My host family took us to a restaurant. We ate clam chowder and hamburgers there. It was so good!!”
Kei said, “Today is the first day when I went to local school. Math and German class was too difficult for me. But I could understand chemistry class. Yoga class has time to take a nap!! I could sleep very well! American classes were very interesting.”
Students got used to living with host family. Have fun!
March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.
