The time I was new to BC/CANADA

By James Li

When I was new to Vancouver in 2012, I felt strange and novel. It was such a quiet city, not many people, not much traffic and not many shops in the street. It didn’t feel like the city in China. I didn’t even know where to buy foods and daily supplies. I felt lost every day.

As time went on, I went to school to study English. I met some good teachers and classmates. I learned more knowledge about Canada. I began to love the city slowly. I like the natural environment. I like the polite people. I like the orderly society.

I love Canada!
