During term 2, I've been going to Japanese language classes, were we obviously learn the Japanese language. In my opinion, the language is really complicated to learn, for example , there are different ways of counting. Counting numbers, people, money, there are different ways of saying these. Numbers for example is like ichi, ni, san, whereas counting people is hitori, futari, sannin. So learning them was a bit confusing. Besides those, learning a couple phrases wasn't as hard as remembering the numbers. Japanese class was very interesting as i learnt about Japanese customs.
We also had exchange prep were Mr Ali would explain the details of what would be happening while we’re there. The information that I heard was also interesting. I got to talk to my partner, his name is Ryunosuke. He likes to play baseball and basketball, and also exercise. He also walks/bikes to the train, catches the train, then buses to school, despite having to get up early, I’m excited to bike or walk early in the morning, it would be really refreshing. I’ll make sure to talk about my experience with that. I’m looking forward to meeting his family which is, his dad, mum, and 2 brothers.
As the lessons go by, the more exciting it gets to go to Japan. Hopefully I will remember to blog all my experiences in Japan! Thank you for reading!s
