I have been to a social program event once. I joined the Boat Party. I went to the party with In Young, Christie and her friends. There were a lot of students in the boat. And we enjoyed drinking beer & wine, and dancing with our friends. Finally, we could see a beautiful night view of Auckland city from our boat. It’s so fantastic. I think the activities helped me improve my English. Because I could tell them my feelings, like a happy and surprised. However I have been disappointed a little. I wanted to communicate with more people. And I wanted to make a new friend in the party. So next time, If I join such activities, I’ll speak to a lot of students. And I’ll meet a new student. I won’t be afraid. by Mebae Hayashi, a student at Languages International
