Happy New Year 2015
to all HELC students past and present
On 19th November I went to the Hastings Arms with my classmates. There were 12 of us. We were looking for a nice restaurant but we couldn't find one so we went to the restaurant which a man recommended. The restaurant was the Hastings Arms, in fact it is a pub in Hastings Old Town.
We ordered (from) the menu. It took a long time because there was lot of choice on the menu. I chose falafel with pitta plate. It was not so good, but I enjoyed having lunch with my friends. We were very very hungry so we were quiet while we were eating it. To my surprise, all of the plates were a big serving of food so we shared it. After finishing lunch, we enjoyed talking. If I hadn't come to HELC, I could't have experienced anything like that.
Rie from JapanHELC students are very friendly. Maybe, it makes me comfortable. I had a good lunch time yesterday. Next time I'd like to try Indian spicy curry. It's coming winter, so I want to have something warm to eat. I always feel like eating rice and miso soup at this time of year.
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?
