alpha secondary Before I came to Canada I was so scared…it was the first time alone in a different country and I couldn’t speak English at all… I was worried about not being able to make friends. The first day of school… I saw some other Japanese students, and that helped me feel comfortable… Coming to Burnaby has been a great experience for me. Coming to Burnaby Mountain gave me the experience of a typical Canadian school life. The ESL system is really good here Three years later I can’t say I am not scared of anything, but I can talk to Canadian students, ask questions in class and feel comfortable travelling around the city. My experience in Canada will help me with my interests of studying media and communications. Coming to Burnaby has been a great experience for me.
