I want to share my thoughts on wrapping up my study abroad with you guys, but I realized that I have so much to say, so I decided to break it up into a 3-part series. Now, I’m going to share my Japanese language journey from when I first arrived in Japan to returning home. The other parts will be about my final speech I gave at the closing ceremony for my language program at Daito Bunka University, and life lessons I learned while studying abroad. Stay tuned for those!
At the end of the exchange program at Daito Bunka University, all of the students that are leaving that semester are required to give a speech in Japanese. I was terrified to do so, but I gave it my all.
The speech is basically a way for all of the students to show off what they learned. Even students that didn’t study Japanese before coming to Japan, they were able to simple yet very sweet speeches.
Hi friends! It’s Sam here. I’ve compiled a list of amazing things I’ve learned and experienced while here in London on study abroad. Cheers!
I’m in Spain!! Never thought I would be on the other side of the North Atlantic Ocean, but I am! Arriving to my host family’s home I was really nervous even though I had talked to my host sister through WhatsApp. My family consists of my host mom, Mercedes, and host sister, Julia. I was worried about whether they’d like me and about us getting along because I would be living at their house for the rest of the summer in Santander.
Since returning from London, I have noticed a tremendous amount of habits I have picked up from my study abroad trip that I am exemplifying back home currently.
I never realized how much I love breakfast food until I came to Spain and began only eating a small pastry and drinking a cup of tea for breakfast every morning. Back home, I eat SO MUCH more and it has certainly taken getting accustomed to.
