I went to the Millais School for 1 week as an exchange student.
I learned a lot of things. It gave me precious memories.
My situation was a little different from others. I had just 6 days before I can meet my partner.
I was looking forward to meeting my partner. March 10 was my first time to go to Millais School and meet my partner. I was thinking about many questions for her. But when the time came to meet my partner there was no word coming out from my mouth, because I was so nervous. I just exchanged greetings with her on that day.
At night, I regretted that I did not speak much with her.
And I decided to talk anything if I got nervous.
From March 11 to 14, I talked to her as much as I could.
We went bowling, ate dinner with my host family, played games, stopped by some places on the way …….
There were many chances to talk to her and we became close friends little by little.
I was happy even if topics of our conversation were trivial.
On March 14, I heard that it was the last day to meet her.
On the evening, we ate dinner at our friend’s house and watched movies.
Then, the time to say good-bye came.
I had a lump in my throat and tears welled up in my eyes.
I did not want to say good-bye. But I could not find out words to tell her.
” See you again ” she said.
She told me that this was not the last time for me to see her , and we could meet again.
We are definitely to meet if we want to.
I learned not only English but also something more important through this exchange.
Thank you for my host family, teachers, partner, Millais School students.
