作品： Seven days' study in Australia
This summer I took part in a summer camp in Australia and studied in Australia for seven days.
We went to an Australian school named St Maroun's college. We went there by bus. When we got there, we first got into different classes. I studied in grade four. Our first class was religion class, and then we studied Australian culture and English spelling. We had lunch at one o'clock. We studied math and read two books in the afternoon. I like culture class the best because it is very interesting. It's about the history of Australian, like how they lived and what did they used before. First we learned how to throw "boomerang" and make it back. My friend couldn't do it, me neither. Then we learned a special dance. It's very hard. I could not do it very well. Then we learned how to paint face with dye. It is awful! I didn't try it, but my friends did. This is a really fantastic class.
I had math, English, computer, music, geography and French class. I like French class the best because it's interesting and useful, but it is incredibly hard to remember the words. I really want to see the Arc de Triomphe. It's awesome. When I travel to France one day, I am very glad that I have learned French because I can communicate with French. Now the French class is awfully hard and terrible, but one day it will be used. Maybe it will not be used, but I believe every knowledge will not be wasted.
We went to church to pray on Friday morning. It's very quite in it at the first, then everyone stood up. They prayed and sang songs. There was some candles. Father burnt it, then everyone (not included Chinese students) sang songs and prayed to god. I think god will hear them. I am very glad to be a Chinese who saw the whole process of pray.
There's a lot of different things between Chinese and Australian class. Computer class in Australia needs two students use one computer, not like China, everyone has his own computer. Math is easier than Chinese class. The Australian study fraction in grade four, while Chinese children study one year ahead of Australian.
Australian class have some shortcomings. I think the Australian class is too long and the break time is too short. They should have forty or forty five minutes for one class, then take five or ten minutes to go to toilet, drink some water and relax their eyes. The lunch time is too late in Australia. I advice lunch time should be at twelve o' clock to prevent students from being too hungry. Although Australian class have some shortcomings, I think it is still very good.
I have some advice for the next team who will study in St Maroun's college. First, you shouldn't drink too much water in the lunch time, because there 's only one chance you can go to toilet in the afternoon. Maybe you can raise your hand to go to toilet in class, but you will lose some class time. Then, you should take notes in French class, because French will be very hard if you use your brain to remember it, even it is brilliant. And for my last advice, I would like to say: "DO NOT SPEAK IN THE CHURCH !" when everyone is praying, if you are speaking, you are going to pay for that! This is my advice for the next team, may god bless them.
