English study in New Zealand
I stayed in New Zealand since January 28 to February 23 for English study.I have acquaintance in New Zealand.His name is Mr.Paul Murray.He lives in a place of "Karamea" in New Zealand.The following is his address.
Rongo Backpackers & Gallery
I was practicing english through helping the work of Rongo Backpackers(such as making bed,hung up washed clothes,hung down dry clothes,making japanese coffee for everyone,making dinner for everyone,making bread for everyone and so on).
I've already come back to my house.Newzealand was owesome.Actualy,I did various activities.Main activity was work of Rongo backpackers,such as bed making,hung up washed clothes,hung down dry clothes,vacuum cleaning,bathroom cleaning,making japanese coffee for everyone,making dinner for everyone.After Trekking mountain,so many customers come to Rongo backpackers.They are so hungry.At that time,I did the task of bread making and curry rice making.
About cooking,people in Newzealand taught me a lot of knowledge.About bread making,French girl and Swiss gentleman taught me a lot of technique of bread making.Then,about French cooking named "quiche",French girl showed me how to make quiche.Then,Newzealand gentleman taught me the recipe of "foil grill of fish".This foil cooking uses some lemons and onions and black pepper.At that time,British gentleman gave me one advice."rosemary will be nice".So,I used rosemary,too.This cooking was sweet-as.Then,another Newzealand gentleman taught me the recipe of cookie named "Original Anzac".He showed me the cooking book of Anzac.So,I made the memorandum of Anzac recipe in my notebook.
One day,I did climbing mountain named Mt.Stormy for the first time.Height of Mt.Stormy is totaly 1,084 m.This mountain has no road.So it was very hard to climb without walking stick.That was my first climbing.I didn't bring a walking stick.So I was completely exhausted.I couldn't move my body,legs.I couldn't stop my shaking of arms.Furthermore,in my brain it was very foggy.At that time,one of staff,he was german guy.He gave me chocolate bar and walking stick.So I could climb the top of Mt.Stormy.Many thanks for his help.
Another day,I did walking through the caves named fenian caves.We went there with 4 people including me by car.At that time,we got lost completely.Furthermore,we lost one of members.At that time,we shouted his name.But no reaction returned.However,finally we could find correct way to main road and the person.We needed much more time to come back to backpackers.It was valuable experience.
The people in New Zealand taught me a lot of useful expressions.For example,as a meaning of "It's very nice!",they taught me
Sweet-as!(during Neazealandar or Australian.They said so.)
It's the shit!
Then,as a meaning of "It's very bad.",they taught me
Then,as a meaning of "Playing cricket game is the best!I love playing cricket game!",they taught me
Playing cricket is awesome!
Playing cricket is the dog's bollocks!(British gentleman explained about this expression.This expression came from Britain.)
Anyway,this Neazealand trip was sweet-as!I hope you feel "sweet-as" everyday.
