I've been in Melbourne in AustraliaHiroko
as(on) a working holiday since November. At first, I was in(on the) Gold Coast to meet Kate from Russia who studied English in Helc with me (in 2012) and after that, I started working in (a) Japanese style hotel. I work with Japanese staff and (the) Austaralian owner so I speak Japanese and English. Haha. I'll work athere for 4 months maybe so I've been pondering abouthow to study English in this situation. The worst thing is my listening ability. Anyway, I read books all the time. I hope my English will be better inhere. How is Hastings?
[To ponder something = to think about it carefully and for a long time]
