I'm a Sightseeing Volunteer ✳︎About the first day

 IMG_6803.jpg 
 On June 10, it was the first day for me as a volunteer, so I felt nervous in the morning.

 I took a bus for Sapporo Station, although I usually drive a car, but I didn’t, because if I had parked my car in a parking lot, it would have cost me a lot of money. And I have bought an IC card called SAPICA. It’s very convenient for me.

 And I volunteered at the sightseeing counter that is located near the north entrance in Sapporo Station building this time.

 There were two senior volunteers who were very nice. And so many tourists from Korea, China, Taiwan and white persons visited our counter. I do speak English a little, but I had to talk to them in English. And we got all sorts of questions. For examples, how to get to Okurayama and the hotels, where are the luggage lockers, the bus stops, ATMs, Yodobashi-Camera and so on. Sometimes we went with them out of the station building where they wanted.

 One of the tourist couples who seemed to be on a honeymoon asked me where the luggage lockers were. So I took them to the nearest lockers area and talked to them in English and said that I was sorry, my English was broken. They were laughing a lot. I should’ve say, “I’m sorry about my broken English.”

 And I explained about the locker's details. They wanted to know how long they could leave their suitcases there. So I said that you could use them for three days. But my pronunciation of the word “for” didn't work at first and I explained about it over and over again.
 
 My pronunciation of “for” sounded like “four“ to them. I mispronounced “for” as “four.” Finally they could understand about that. When I left there, I told them that I was sorry, my English was poor but have a nice day. They were laughing with wave of their hands.

 I had good experiences that day. And I'm going to volunteer at Odori Park on June 27. I'm getting nervous again.

今日はボランティア初日について英語のレッスン用に

書いた文章をアップしました(間違いは訂正済み)

書いてある事は札幌駅で初の観光ボランティアをして

かなり緊張した事、たくさんの観光客さんからの

お尋ねに答えた事、なかでもアジアの若いカップルさんに

コインロッカーを案内した時に「何日間利用できますか?」と

尋ねられたので「3日間です」と英語で答えのですが

発音が悪くfor フォーを4と勘違いされて何度も

説明した時に「私の英語が壊れていてごめんなさい」と

日本人的ジョークで誤ったら、これは間違った言い方で

彼らに馬鹿受けしてしまいました

次回は大通公園です 緊張してきたよ〜

ひよこの区切り線 


以上、こんな感じです

(写真は英文に添付したのとは別のです)

英語の先生にも馬鹿受けしてしまい・・・・
