Yamazaki party sophomore Yamamoto Saori
I will tell you about some reasons that I applied to College Leader.
First of all, I want to try my present English compare with my English of junior high school student’s and how much I can get communication with foreign people, because when I was junior high school student, I couldn’t communicate with my host family and I got some hard experiences. So I want to do my best!! There are little differences between English in college and necessary English in home stay, but I want to try to compare present oneself with has-been oneself.
Second, I want to report my thoughts that my experiences in junior high school student include good ones and bad ones to junior high school students who go to home stay this year. I don’t know how much helpful my experiences to them, at least I am their senior though I had already been to home stay, so I think I want to support them to make the most of my experiences. I think it is a good opportunity to retrace past oneself though telling that to junior high school students.
Today, there are so many programs to home stay in school or many associations except LABO. Then though it was why I chose College Leader system in LABO, I will tell you about the reasons.
If I go to home stay through in my school program, it seems there are little opportunity to communicate with foreign people. If I go to local school, there are many Japanese so I heard it is difficult to communicate one person to one person. I heard there were little realizations of home stay because there are a lot of Japanese around us. By contrast, I think it will grow up self-help spirit in LABO program, because if I try to do something in person, it will start nothing. I think so from my experience. I think that the best purpose of this home stay is self-help. I think that it is a halfway condition about self-help in junior high school. Saying in school respect, they are in compulsory education curriculum, so they just do which are decided things. They just run rails which are lead by someone. However I think they can find their own road through this home stay. First I think they can take a step to self-help by the decision of going to home stay. Maybe it is first time for them to go to the land which they don’t know like foreign country only one person without their parents. I think it is anxiety for them. It is easy for college students to go to travel only one person. However I think this decision is very big for junior high school students, so it is impossible easy decision. To think like this is that I once experienced same thing, by contrast if I hadn’t go to home stay, I didn’t understand their mind. I can occur the then my figure vividly just I am writing this repot. I thought it was best memory because I can occur that vividly though the past memory. It is already started the advance activity for people who go to home stay this year, but I think they have anxiety and hope. I think I want to help them who are about to take a step to self-help and give them my entire thing. I work at doing advance activity with them, and think, learn, and I try to remove their fear and I hope they can spend wonderful home stay. I make sure their growth and at the same time I believe I can grow through this so I want to try my best!! When I thought about what is the best thing that I can do for them, I thought I try to expose with smile. If I don’t smile, they may feel fear. So I incline my heart to keep smile.
I think I want to support not only LABO kids but also hostfamily to spend enjoyable time and to make wonderful memory. I know this task is not so easy, but I think it is helpful for my future, because the achievement of this task is great thing I think. It may be my mental food. I longed college leader when I was in high school, so if I can be college leader, I try to my best!! If there are some hard tasks, I don’t give up and I go with positive thinking!!
When I was in high school, I experienced senior mate once, and did a lots kinds of activity of chapter and district. Now I am involving in many many activities. Last year I experienced college mate. I involve Caravan-tai for two years, and this year I became a chief. It is difficult to advance something in the top, but there were so many things that I can learn. I have strong determination with my LABO activity until now. From these thoughts I thought I try to apply for college leader.
