British Columbia is a Canadian province with beautiful cities. Such as Vancouver and Victoria. In Vancouver, visitors can walk around Stanley Park, go to several wonderful museums, or shop in big malls. On a sunny day, the views around Vancouver are beautiful. Because you can see the mountains. Many tourists come to visit British Columbia from all over the world. If you ever have the chance to go to Western Canada. You should try to visit British Columbia. At first, life was difficult for me in the U.S., I didn't understand English. I could speak only a few words of English, so it was very hard to communicate. Luckily, I had some friends who spoke English they could help me a lot. When I needed to fill out applications or go to the doctor, my friends translated for me. Now I can do everything by myself because I speak and understand English quite well, and I am getting along fine. The new city library near my house built in 1990. Every day I am going to the library to study in a quiet place. Yesterday, I studied in the library for 3 hours. Residents are allow to check out books, CDs, and tapes from the library. I had my own library card since last August. Students usually have homeworks every day.I always have to read book and write summary. I sometimes learn useful information in my reading assignments. This week we are reading stories from several country. I'm learning about tradition and custom in Chile. Both the tapes and the book for our listening class is available in the college bookstore. One of my favorite hobbies are looking at books in a big bookstore. The people who work in the bookstore are very helpful. Every student need to know how to get to the bookstore. The bookstore opens at 8:00am and closes at 8:00pm on weekdays.
