Hello everyone!! We finally made it to our final full day in America and we went to Disneyland!

In the morning, we packed our stuff and checked out of UCSD. We had a great time at UCSD for our program, so it was sad to say goodbye to our home! But, we were all excited to go to Disneyland with 2 of our American friends!

When we arrived at Disneyland, it was very hot and sunny! Students all split into groups and explored the park together!

Most students went straight to Space Mountain, a jet coaster ride that is now Star Wars themed! It is such a fun ride and I wish I could go on it! It is my recommendation when you come to Disneyland 😊


For the students that don’t like fast rollercoasters, they were able to walk around and see the various attractions! I heard most students also went on Pirates of the Carribean, the ride the movies are based on. It is a great ride to escape from the heat, so that was a popular ride today.


Other students also rode Indiana Jones, Matterhorn, It’s a Small World, and much more! It was a beautiful day and it was not too crowded. Most students told me that Disneyland in Japan is more crowded and the lines are much longer. I am glad students had lots of time to explore 😊


As we left Disneyland, we had to say goodbye to our 2 American friends. It was sad to say our final goodbyes, but it was amazing to see how close everyone became in only 13 days!

We all had our final dinner in America at an American style buffet! The options were endless and everyone filled up fast!

We made it safely to our hotel in LA, and tomorrow is the day we have to say goodbye.

These past two weeks have been quite the journey. Initially, students were all very quiet and shy. It was hard to understand what they were thinking and how they felt, but now everyone is very lively! It is great to see everyone opening up with each other and making such strong friendships. I am so proud of this group and I am sad to see them go. This group really does feel like a strong family and I am happy I was able to be a part of it. I hope that everyone continues to communicate with the friends they made during this camp and continues to study English.

Thank you all and have a great night!!!
