Dear host family

   Hello. Nice to meet you. My name is Emma. Next month, i will visit your house to go to study abroad. Thank you for accepting my homestay. I'm looking forward to it. I am a 1st grade student at KGU. My major is English because I want to be a flight attendant in the future. I have had this dream since I was in elementary school. My mother wanted to be one too so she used to said me "I want you to become flight attendant".
   This is the first time to go abroad for this study abroad. I want to do three things there. First, I want to go to Disneyland because i like Disney very much. Especially my favorite character is Ariel. Next, I want to go to Madame Tussands. I watch American movies at least 5 times a month.
 The biggest reason is
i just like it but I think my English ability will improve by watching English movies with closed caption. My favorite actress is Angelina Jolie so I like "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" very much. Finally, I want to work at a part time job because I think that I can touch practical English by going to practical English by going to society.
   I am looking forward to the home stay and seeing you for a long time.

autumn


              Hello. I am going to talk about the autumn. There are a lot of event in the autumn.

              First, the most famous event in autumn is Halloween. Halloween is a fan and popular holiday in America. Children dress in scary or funny costumes so that the spirits will think they are ghosts also and leave them alone. People carve scary faces or images into pumpkins to frighten evil spirits and keep them away from their homes. Also, an ancient practice in England was to leave food or wine outside your home, for wandering spirits. So children go “trick or treating” now to imitate wandering spirits looking for food or treats. Many adults have costume parties and dress up in costumes, eat, and drink with friends. They also decorate their homes with scary ornaments and lights. Because of this, it’s a holiday everyone can enjoy.

         Second, autumn is a season of autumn leaves. The best time to see the autumn foliage in Japan is from mid -November to mid-December. In autumn, Japanese go out to the mountainous countryside to see autumn leaves. We call this activity “Momizi-gari”. The autumn leaves change color from green to red or yellow.

              The traditional Japanese autumn event is Otukimi. It is a season festival to enjoy the moon on the night of August 15th, on the Chinese calendar. Otsukimi means “viewing the moon”. In Japan, people decorate with silver grasses and offer rice dumplings to the moon. It is said that silver grass can house a Shinto God, and acts as a charm against evil. People offer the rice dumplings in appreciation for the harvest of grains. The moon which you can see on the 15th is called “Chushu-no-meigetsu”which means “Mid-Autumn moon’. In English, it is called “Harvest moon”. It is also called “Potato moon” because people offer taro, a kind of potato, to the moon.

How to improve English speaking skill

   I will give you some advice about how to practice English speaking.
   First it is better for you to watch a lot of American movies in English. I started to watch movies when I was in elementary school. Through this way, I learned a lot of idioms and expressions which we can't learn by teachers at class. I do not last long but I can continue this way for a long time because I like to watch movies. Movies have all kinds of things so you must be find a favorite.
    Second you have to look for someone who can speak English with fluently. When I was a high school student, I talked with my class teacher who is a English teacher every after school. This way has a lot of good points. First we kick it off. So you can ask him if you had some problems. I  still contact with him. Second you can improve your communication skill. This skill is important to even become an adult member of society. Tired you can do this way whenever and wherever because we can use SNS such as LINE and Skype and they without a fee.

   Finally you have to learn by heart idioms and words. English is based on them. If you mastered them, you would be good at speaking, listening, writing and so on. So it is the most important to improve your English skills. Let's try them.
