We don’t have special age like Korean.
My character is ordinary, I think. I’m quiet and possessive.
But I’m not rigid. Next, I will talk about the heart of the topic.
I came here in Cebu on Jan 1. And I met a lot of people.
When I arrived here, I couldn’t speak English much but now I can speak English well. My English skill has been definitely improving,
I think. I owe it to MTM and friendly people speaking English in Cebu.
I appreciate that. It was good that I came here because the environment surrounding me promotes my potency in studying.
MTM teachers are also very friendly. I always say, “Hi” to them. But in case of Japan, it’s not common. If I say, “Hi” to the teacher who I met first time at that time, he or she may ignore me.
Anyway, the thing I want to say is I like Cebu and the friendly people in Cebu. I want to live here forever if I could.But I seem can’t do that due to my work in Japan. After I go back to Japan, I must return to a stricter environment. I don’t like it.
One of the things I’m surprised at is the workers. Almost workers are free. For example, a worker sells something, and at the time, sitting, dancing, or singing. Unbelievable! Cebu is freedom.
That’s one of reasons why I want to live here.
Cebu is an island. So it’s surrounded by the sea. The sea is very beautiful, and the beaches are also beautiful and clean. Holy shit!
On the other hand, Cebu has weak points, too.
For example, polluted air, water, congested traffic, rule and so on. Sometimes I see people who pee on the street or in any public spaces. That makes me uncomfortable. Ultimately, taxi driver has bad manner and doesn’t obey the traffic rules. They spontaneously ignore traffic signals. That’s why traffic jam frequently happens in places. The government should force people to follow their rules through the media and police enforcement.
I want to highlight about the nightlife. In Cebu, there are many places attracting us. For instance, Juliana, Pump, Loft as clubs, and Bikini Bars and so on. If you want to effectively use night time to study English, I would recommend going to a Bikini Bar or a club because you can get the opportunity to speak English and enjoy dancing and drinking.You can kill two birds with one stone.
I think we should speak more and increase the chance to speak English. In case of Japan, we don’t have a good curriculum of English education. We don’t have enough teachers speaking English.
In the class, almost all teachers use Japanese and a little English. That’s the English education problem in Japan.
Lastly, I want to express how glad I am meeting the people who I socialize with most of the time. I’m grateful to them and I sincerely hope to see them again in the future.
