The new school year is starting soon here in Japan! I hope all of the schoolers and teachers enjoyed their spring vacation and could take some time to relax.
In the United States the school term is totally different from Japan. Our school year starts in mid to late August each year and goes until mid to late May. That means growing up we all have about three months off school every year!
Just like Japan we have some homework to do over vacation but usually its only for literature class and its called "Summer Reading." We have to read a few books and maybe write a paper.
During summer vacation we often go to summer camp or go on vacation with our families. High schoolers often spend that time working a part time job as well. And we have two weeks winter vacation and a one week spring break too!
In elementary and middle school I always went to camp and during high school I always worked at my part time job during my time off from school.
How did you spend your time off from school?
