July 2005


+ Canada Day +

The atmosphere was different from usual. Everyone wore red shirts, painted a maple leaf on their cheeks, put on a hat which had the designs of the Canadian flag, had a coffee cup in their left hand and a Canadian flag in the right hand. Red and white and red and white and... July 1st is the birthday of Canada. I heard that Ottawa is the cheeriest city on this day. I saw the Snowbirds, listened to a jazz concert at the park and enjoyed the crowd. When I was taking a rest in my room, I heard the fire works. Wow I could watch the fireworks from the penthouse of my apartment! It was so wonderful. Happy birthday Canada!



+ Nightmare in Morning +

I quit English school because I decided to go to summer school in the college to learn ASL. Lerning ASL is one of the important purposes in my Canadian life. The next morning, however, I received a tooooooooooooo bad call from the college staff. She said to me that the ASL course was cancelled. I said to her that I understood the reason for cancellation and I will go the next day. When I was about to hang up, I said "See you tomorrow". She said "No, no! The ASL course is completely cancelled". What??? I couldn't understand why because I already had my first lesson at the college. The course had already started! My upset feeling prevented to listen to the reasons (I'm not sure, but the reasons were the teacher's schedule or small class.) but, anyway, I knew that there would be no class if I went to college from the point on. What should I do in July?



+ Language Exchange +

My friends told me how to learn daily English. It was "language exchange". I thought that it was good for me because I am interested in teaching Japanese. I could get not only the chance to learn live English from Canadians but also to experience teaching Japanese, if I could find some good partners! At that time, one of my Japanese friends was also looking for a language exchange partner. I tried to find some good partners with my friends by using my friends' network and the Internet. Finally, we could get 4 partners. Yeah! I decided to learn English from them instead of going to English school at least in July and August.



+ IELTS +

I took IELTS (International English Language Test System) which is the English test for immigration. Canadian immigration system adapts point system. It has some categories such as language skills, education background, job opportunities, etc. My total score lacked 3 points to apply for permanent resident. If I had very good scores on this test, I would have been able to apply. But for the application, I have to get a higher score at least in 2 modules, including listening, reading, witting, or speaking. Well, well, well, after I wrote the test, I found that the application sheet was too far from me. I will try again and again!
