Emmanuel College Exchange

Hello, we are Yui, Yuna and Megumi from wing2. From last week, we started to take a class at Emmanuel College twice a week. We learn about gender issues. We really enjoy to take a class at an American college and see a new teacher. By the way, we have only 16 days until going back to Japan. Time flies so fast!!! 2 years ago, we moved to Tokyo from other prefecture and after a half year, we came to Boston. But we have been in Boston about a year and a half. We are more familiar with Boston than Tokyo! Boston is our second hometown. We’re busy to enjoy Boston, eat Boston food and buy souvenirs. We’re so happy to come to Boston as members of BLIP15 and be here for a long time.blog #211 pic

Vacation

こんにちは、Wing2ビジネスデザイン学科の石井と山田です。

今回私たちはTravelについて紹介したいと思います。Showa Boston滞在中にも夏休み、サンクスギビングデイ、冬休み、また週末にも旅行に行くことができます。


vercation1

わたしたちは、夏休み中にフロリダのディズニーワールドに行ってきました。この時期にはすでにハローウインのイベントが始まっていました。宿泊数により、チケットや宿泊台が手ごろになるので、わたしたちは5泊6日しました。申し込みは、旅行代理店でなく、公式サイトのほうが手数料の関係で安く済みました。

vercation2

冬休みには、年越しでニューヨークに行ってきました。わたしは、前期にニューヨークトリップで行ったのですが、忙しすぎて全然見れなかったのでもう一度行くことにしました。

vercation3

カウントダウンには、タイムズスクエアにはいかずにテレビで見ることにしました。とても混んでいて、何時間も立ち見するのは大変です。ゆったり新年を向かい入れることができたのでよかったです。

 

週末にも、ニューヨークであればバスで4時間、また往復30ドルで行くことができます。ボストンもとても良いところですが、せっかくアメリカに来たのであれば、いろいろなところにおとずれてみてはいかがですか。

Traveling to New York

Hi, I’m Rei from Wing2. I had been in New York during this winter vacation. I spent a great time there through Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Spending New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square was top of my dream in my life. I was glad that my dream came true. However, standing for a long time in crowded Time’s Square was harder than I expected. I thought I don’t want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square again though it was really amazing. It was the most delightful moment in my life here the United States. I hope everyone will have a great year.

Volunteering

thumbnail_pict_original

I have volunteered the Greater Boston Food Bank three days per week for three weeks in International volunteer program which students go to organizations from the dormitory in summer vacation. It costs 2,740 dollars even though it is volunteer because this program gives the students credits. Each my three friends in this program went to different places so there are no Japanese helpers in these places. I a little worried about that but there were physical works so I did not have any problems. I went to the Greater Boston Food Bank by a school car. My friend in the program went her place by herself and her money. I sorted ready-made foods by dates and packed them. I walked around to carry boxes so sometimes it makes me a little tired. I set up paper boxes. I put products into bags through a belt conveyer. A person brings foods from boxes to near the line. Another person brings and sets up boxes for people putting foods. It is team work. Volunteers enjoy conversation with workers in the organization. I introduced the Japanese tea ceremony to a college student girl and she got interested in Kaji Aso Studio, which is a Japanese culture center, and is known to many Showa teachers like Katherine, Tom, Pat, and so on. I met her in the last volunteer day for me. We folded letters from the organization to people. There were simple jobs which I have never tried before. They improved my creativity to come up with effective ways to deal with them. Therefore, I learned new things from International volunteer.
