Oliver Kelley Farm
There are many animals.
Cows, sheep, houses and so
This is the capitol in MN. We saw
many special rooms. Inside is very
beautiful. Outside is so nice.
There are many antique shops
and old buildings. We can get
some fashionable things. But...they
are a little expensive.
MALL OF AMERICA
This is the most biggest shopping mall
in America. There are more than 500
shops, amusement park and aquarium.
We bought many things here. Japanese
likes shopping!!! We had a good time
here. After 3 years, Mall Of America will
enlarge. I think we need more time to
go around this shopping mall. I want to
visit here again.
There are many animals in

Japanese monkey and so on.

eat a big hamburger
I ate so big hamburger in America. There are many
hamburger shops. Of course, McDonald’s is. I think American
hamburger is 1.5 times bigger than Japanese one.

kind. Thanks to them we could enjoy for a month in America.

us. So we could study English happily. I like her.
Taylor & Peggy
Taylor is our van’s driver. He drove us every morning. His
character is so lovely and very kind. Peggy is his future
wife and another ESL class’s teacher. They engaged during
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.
