To be honest, I was kind of nervous when I first arrived to Mattoon. At that time, I felt like Mattoon is a really peaceful place. Compared with Hong Kong, it is totally different, no tall buildings, no busy traffic, no crowded streets. I suddenly wondered, how can I adapt? But after I stayed here longer, and getting to know more people in Mattoon, I figured out that Mattoon is a really nice place and good environment for study. People are nice; they enjoy talking, and also love to smile. Such as my host family, I enjoy to talk with him, his two daughters and also his wife. It causes me have confidence to practice my English and learn more American culture.
