Experiences in Canada I will never forget

by Riko



I have been to Canada twice. The first time I was 12 years old. The second time was a school excursion in high school. Such a long time ago, my memories of the first time are few. But the second time, I can remember where I went. For example, Victoria, Banff, and so on.

Then, I stayed at a home in Canada. In spite of only two days, it was surprising for me. Before I visited Canada, I couldn't imagine that Canada has a lot of immigrants. My host family was from Southeast Asia.

And the official languages are English and French! Japan has only Japanese of course, but in Canada I found so many things in two languages. Even a package of orange juice! One side was written in English, the other side was in French!

And when I took a ferry, I was spoken to by an old woman. "Where are you from?" My heart beat fast. "J..Japan," I answered timidly. Then she said, "No. Japan! J・A・P・A・N!"

First, I didn't understand what happened. Then I realized that my pronunciation was being corrected. Now, it was a good time for me.

Perhaps, from February to March next year, I may go to Canada again to study English. If I can do that, I will be grrrrreat happy!!
