Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

The reason I want to study Chinese in China is that I participated in intensive training to live in Chinese only, and three weeks of language training. I learned Chinese for the first time at university, I joined them in order to know how much I could learn.
However, I realized that my speaking and listening skills are low. I didn't show much what I learned so far, so I felt frustrated. But it is shame to finish my study here, and I hoped for a study abroad. I would like to live a life surrounded by Chinese for 10 months and improve my language skills. I am aware that I have expectations for my success and that I will be able to study abroad as a school representative, and I will work hard on my studies.
I would like to express great gratitude to all the schools who support studying abroad and those who support me, and I want to grow greatly and come back.

Experience while studying abroad

Five months have passed since I came to China. I plan to study abroad for 10 months, but the half has passed. I felt that time passed quickly. On the first day of arriving in China, I was anxious and couldn't sleep. I quickly get used to life in China and live a enjoyable life every day. Talking to Japanese friends on campus, I am often asked, "Are you Japanese?", I made many friends. In particular, there are many exchanges with Chinese students majoring in Japanese. They took me to play on weekends, ate food together, and went on a trip during winter vacation. I study in international student classes, so I thought that only international students could interact. Unexpectedly I was able to interact with many Chinese. The best friend in class is a French boy. As I talked to him every day, I was learning new words. I use the words I learned once in a life, I remember for not to forget. I also studied for the perfect score in the regular test. In the first semester, I was selected as the best student in the class, and I was commended at the closing ceremony. i was very glad. I will do my best to be selected in the second semester. I am in a hurry because studying abroad is only another six months. I will do my best to achieve the goals I set before studying abroad. It depends on my actions, so I would like to spend half a year carefully without regrets.

Results of study abroad, future goals

My year of studying abroad has ended. I had a great experience in China and met good teachers and many friends. Guangdong University of Foreign Studies has many students who have high language skills. It was a good environment to improve my language skills. Not only fun, but there were troubles, but my friends encouraged me so I was able to do my best. I also actively participated in club activities and volunteer activities, and tried to improve my language skills in various environments. My studying abroad has ended, but I would like to continue studying  Chinese. I will never forget the memory of my studying abroad in China. Thank you everyone.
