Demo Class Notes (Carol Ji – Jesse)

Speaking

the latest year in japan, because the distance is not so far so we don’t do take many annual leaves because im in work maybe if i want to america or england maybe at least 10 days, it’s too long. 4 days in osaka, and the sea garden, and kyoto. Osaka is a city maybe more similar with shanghai or china’s big cities because not like in tokyo have so many rules, maybe as a forefingers in osaka it’s more comfortable, more relax. In Kyoto, i think as a foreigner it’s more interesting for us, because tokyo is too similar like shanghai.
