Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

I am glad to study English in Enderun college in Manila,the Philippines. It is special for me to study English in the Philippines, whose official language is English. The program is fantastic because it has man-to-man lessons in English.
I want to become a pilot in the future. It is difficult for my dream to come true however I need more English skills. I have an internship for a week studying Eglish abroad.Iknow the worth
that I can have internship in this time; I am now second grade. I want to use everything I get on this internship in my future. I am sure that something
will be good in this internship evevn if it does not have relation to becoming a pilot. I want to find my life in the future through this studying abroad and internship.

Experience while studying abroad

I had classes from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. in Enderun college everyday. In the morning, I had one-to-one conversation class and the internship class. I discussed daily life, individual personality, and so on in the conversation class. It helped me to know about myself. In the internship class, I practiced for job interview and roll-play for real situation. I had a presentation about Law because i had my internship at a law office. So I made one presentation about law.
In the afternoon, we had discussion class with different theme every time. For instance, we have wide theme such as hypnotism, solar system planets, and so on. We could learn how to express our opinion. It was so hard for me to make vlog, horror movie, discussing and acting but it was enjoyable.

Results of study abroad, future goals

The most impressive thing that I felt in Philippines was that every worker in law office seemed so happy to work. We had lunch together. Those time were great time for us because they talked a lot about funny things. And in the last day, it was a worker’s birthday. We celebrated him and ate special dishes and cake. I cannot forget that day. Our job descriptions were answering the phone call and giving a presentation for comparison between Japan and Philippines about regulations, traditions, rules and so on. Answering the phone calls was hard for me to understand what we said to me. Sometimes I asked for other’s help.
I want to improve my English skills in intonation in addition to pronunciation. I felt the importance of intonation. I found that I cannot tell them what I wanted to say by just pronouncing. In the future, I want to improve pronunciation, expression and punctuation like those of native speaker’s.
