This post comes from a group in Denver, Colorado in the USA!
Hello, we are a group of English language learners living in Denver, Colorado, in the United States. Our estimated population is 634,265. The population of our city is very diverse. In this particular group we have people from Mexico, China, and the Philippines.
In Denver, winters are long and we have snow storms. Sometimes snow covers houses, cars, and trees, and we get stuck in our houses for days. During winter, we enjoy hot soup, such as menudo and pozole, sometimes made of buffalo.
Before winter, we have a beautiful fall. The mountains covered with trees look like a mixture of yellow, brown, and green.
Denver is a source of different kinds of fruit. We have watermelons, cantaloupes, peaches, pears, cherries, and many more.
We love Denver and we are happily raising our children here.
We love Coca Cola too!
Thanks Denver! Stay warm this winter!

こんにちは This next post comes to us from a high school in Kanzaki, in the Saga Prefecture of Japan!
There are 40 students in one class. (How many students are there in your school or in your class?) Our school has several interesting courses such as agricultural course, food & science course, business & computing course, life & welfare course, health & sports course, humanities & culture course. In Japan when kids turn 15 years old they usually take an entrance exam if they want to go to the senior high school.
There are different types of senior high schools in Japan. In our school, after the junior high school students are admitted after passing the entrance exam, they are supposed to make a plan about what to learn during their stay in our school based on their own future goal. If they are interested in giving support to senior citizens, they’ll study in the life & welfare course. If the student wants to do business at a company, they will study at the business & computing course which has many businesses related subjects such as book keeping, computing, marketing and so on.
One of the things that we can feel proud of at our school is our sports activities. In particular, our school is well known for the rhythmic gymnastics club. Our rhythmic gymnastics club won the championship in the national high school synthesis physical education meet. Our school won No1 among all senior high schools this summer. We were so excited.
Nice to meet you all! I’ll write you again.
Thank you Kanzaki! We look forward to hearing from you again!
