My name is Hajime Takahashi (Haji) and I’m a Marine Engineer from Yokohama, Japan and working in SingaporeIt was a week holiday of my job and I stayed my host family’s home in St Albans. It was my first time in Europe. Kate and Peter (my host parents) took me around the town and explained me about its history and culture, also gave me many chances to meet and talk with their family and friends in some parties, theatre, church, pub, London, Cambridge…etc. They were very kind to listen to my English and talk friendly with me. Everything I saw in England made me really interested and excited. I love British English, British culture, British people, and everything in the UK. I’d like to say ‘Thank you very much for Kate and Peter’s great hospitality’.
