The Golden Week Holiday

The following is our ALT’s essay:

I am really looking forward to Golden Week as it’s a holiday we don’t have in the UK. I believe now is the best time to go on vacation in Japan. The weather is great, not being too hot or too cold. Japanese spring time is my favourite season as it is so beautiful. I’m happy to have time to appreciate this season properly. I thought Golden Week was one big holiday but it turns out to be a few smaller national holidays that are close together. This year is extra special as the emperor is changing so it’s going to be a 10 day long national break.

During Golden Week I plan to go to Kyoto, Kobe, Osaka and Tokyo. I am most looking forward to seeing Kobe as I have heard a lot about Kobe’s delicious Wagyu beef. It’s famous for being the best beef in the world so I’m eager to try it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Golden Week this year!

We are looking forward to listening to her story!

I prefer to relax at hole on the weekend.  I have two reasons.  First, I study very hard so I get tired.  Second, I like to play video games.  I want to lay them on the weekend.  Therrefore, I prefer to relax at home on the weekend.

I prefer to relax at home on the weekend, because I like home.  And I like making sweets.  I often make a cake with my mother.  It is difficult for me to make one.  But it is very interesting.

I like to relax at home on the weeken, becaause studying and practicing tennis is very tiring.  Study is very difficult for me and I have a lot of homework.  I practice tennis for a very long time, two hours.  So I like to relax at home on the weekend.

St. George’s Day 2

The following is the latter half of Shelley’s essay:

However, a place in England called Salisbury holds an annual St George’s pageant and is believed to be an old tradition, that they have practised since the 13th century. Over the years Saint George has had many stories told about him, from being a brilliant knight during the crusades to save a city from a fire breathing dragon by killing the creature. So even though it is not as widely celebrated as St Patrick’s Day its still part of British culture and heritage.

St. George’s Day 1

The following is Shelley’s essay:

In England we have St George’s Day celebrated on the 23rd of April. It used to be as popular as Christmas day but that is no longer the case. The holiday steadily decreased in popularity by the 18th century after England and Scotland united. It is still celebrated to this day but it’s not one of the major events for most people during the year. To this day there are some politicians that want the day to be revived as a national holiday once again.
