  10. 10. sentiment In America I had a special experience. I think that for a month is a little short. At first speaking English and listening English was very hard for me. But after 1 or 2 weeks, I could enjoy conversation In English. In addition to I could learn American culture. This is different from Japanese. Sometimes it makes us confuse. But learning and understanding another culture is very important. Someday I want to visit America without my dictionary.
