Hello, we are wing8.
We went to Niagara Falls from October 21 to 23. The first day, we took bus at 4PM. And we took bus for about 8 hours. It’s so tried for us. That day was just sleep in hotel.
The second day, we get up at 6:30AM. And leave at 8AM. For 3 hours, we took bus and the students look like sleepy. But as soon as we saw the Niagara Falls, We wake up! The falls were very powerful, beautiful. But it’s too cold for us to go out. So, we enjoyed shopping. I bought maple syrup and cookie. We took pictures in front of Niagara falls with Wing8. After that, we took Niagara cruises! We enjoyed both Canada side fall and America side fall. The spray was violent, so we got wet. We were very excited and scream.
In the free time we walk the around Clifton Hill. There was amusement grounds in there. It’s very lively. After free time, we ate dinner at Skylon tower. Skylon tower is 236m high. So, the view was wonderful!! The meal was so delicious! When we go back to our hotel, I felt so sad. The final day, we went to Norman Rockwell museum. Norman Rockwell is artist and he drew traditional American painting. The pictures were lovable. I bought his picture’s post cards in museum shop. After, we went to Lee outlet mall. There are many bland shops so, many students bought a lot. I bought backpack, handbag and clothes. I was so happy!! This trip was so fun. Next travel is New York! I want to enjoy the trip!

We are going to talk about field trip this week.
It was very beautiful day; weather was good, every student were fine, and teachers were also fine.
First, we went to Plimoth Plantation. Plimoth is a “living museum, “ a replica of the first permanent English settlement in New England. There were a lot of historical houses. People as actor who live in there and explained about history to us. It seemed to skid in old days in time! We interested in Native Americans, so we exited. We thought that culture of Native Americans is beautiful, fantastically, and very smart. Plimoth Plimoth was very nice, but we felt scary. Because flies were crawling all over there. And there was caw that has so big horn. But we think it was also good experiences to us.
After that, we visited to MayflowerⅡ. MayflowerⅡ is a replica of the original ship I which settles first came to Plimoth in 1620. We heard about it before. It was so big. There were cannon, treasure box, and old bed. It was first experience that we watched cannon. We were surprised that an old American made it by hands. We can felt the old American history.
Finally, we ate ice cream. I ordered mocha chip flavor. It was amazing!
It was very fun field trip. We like field trip class but, we want to eat more food. Because we can eat only salad every Thursday in that time.
The day was split into several parts where JETs learned the basics of English language teaching and lesson planning. They then used those lessons to teach Showa students English in the second part of the day. The crash course ended with a session in which the Showa students became the teachers and instructed JETs in Japanese.

6月22日にGlobal link のボランティアとして、語学学校のmini Japan festivalに行きました。みそ汁やたこ焼き、わらびもちなどを語学学校に通っている日本人の学生さんたちを中心に作り、振る舞いました。私は主に浴衣の着付けをしました。各国の語学学校生にとても喜ばれ、自分自身もとても楽しめ、そこで友達を作りました。
語学学校とのコネクションがあったことで、語学学校生のみ参加できるBoard party にも参加し、日本とは異なるpartyも経験できました。そこで各国集まってダンスをしたり歌ったりと本当に楽しい一夜を過ごしました。
