I have some plans for the Christmas and NewYear’s holidays. At first, I am going to make New Year's cards and write message. Before Christmas, I must put this into the postbox. Next, every year, I celebrate Christmas with all of my family members, eating some food like sushi, cake and chiken. However, this year, I'll celebrate Christmas without my older sister. Because she is going to date with her boyfriend. I feel a bit lonely and miss her, but thinking positively, I'll be able to eat more food on that day! Next, I want to join the one-day bus tour, and will join the nice hot-spring. However I haven't decided who to go there. It is difficult to get a reservation at this time of the year, so I feel pressed. In addition, I'm going to visit my grandmother's grave in Shizuoka during the New Year's holiday, but what I am worried about it is that I've got to go there just with my older sister. This is why there are some cause of worries, but I really hope becoming holiday!!

For example, "this mean..." or "In a word..." etc. I need paetners' opinion more understand. then improve paetners' support .Also question quality is very difficult and difficult to answer. difficult question cannnot continue discussion. I need make continue discussion question. For example, "Do you experience like this topic. How?" or "Do you think this topic problem solution?" etc. Moreover my paetner and I should have eye contact. We less eye contact. That mean our announce not looks debate. Than over I want to improvment points. Next time debate will become good quality.
