Isabel Chu | Hong Kong
Summer Course, 2009
The summer of last year, I came from Hong Kong to Kobe of Japan, joined a summer course at Communica Institute. I was staying at homestay family for 16 days. I quickly woke up and had my breakfast every morning, then went to school. There are many activities at school because it was a summer course. Communica teachers, summer course classmates including me have been to Nada Go-go which a factory producing Japanese traditional wine is. We are very excited because all of us had bought many souvenirs. My mother of homestay family is a Etegami teacher. Etegami is a kind of Japanese painting method on postcard, paper or fan etc. I had been a volunteer with my homestay mother at her Etegami lessons in weekend at Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, also at Sport centre. I was having a very busy time! My most favorite day is the Firework festival in Kobe. All teachers and classmates wearing Summer-Kimono to watch the firework show, everybody was enjoying the Japanese look and we all looked beautiful. All teachers in Communica Institute are nice and kind-heart persons, I enjoyed having lessons with them, went out for visiting different places in Kobe, teachers are looked like as our friends more than our teachers. We can be friends, of course! Although this is a short summer course, Communica Institute had provided a Graduation for us; it had frightened me up because it is so unbelievable! After I went back to Hong Kong, I keep contact with my homestay family members until now. I always buy lots of present to my homestay family members because I love them and miss them so much. I also keep contact with the teachers of Communica Institute by sending letters and emails. This year, I went Kobe to visit my homestay family, teachers and everybody I know in October. It was a short trip for 8 days but I was lucky to see all of them living with a healthy and happy life as usual. Look forward to seeing all my friends in Kobe again soon!
