As Usual 2
I cannot believe this is my 69th post since I started it. Time just flies, and honestly sometimes I don't know what to write.
I answered questions from students a lot today. I am still confused immigration procedure, what kind of document students need to extend their stay in Canada. I checked Citizenship and Immigration Canada's website, but still confusing.... Anyway, other marketing representatives helped me, so it wasn't so big problem. I haven't done something new today, I'll try something different next week. (I am not going to write what I will do here...)

It was a very nice day, so I didn't feel like working today.
I worked on some translation and filled out some questionnaires to agents. Also, I was sitting at Reception and another reception, Arrival, where students normally came to ask general questions. There are many students now, so during lunch break it was busy.
Also, I visited Health Canada's website to collect information about STI, sexually transmitted infections. I have noticed that a lot of international students came to Canada, and sometimes they tend to forget how to protect themselves. If you need information about STI, you can download more information from the website.
I will work on translation and probably help students as usual tomorrow.

It was a nice weekend. I watched a movie, Paper Moon (1973), and I really liked it. The story is set in the depression-era Midwestern region of the United States. A man, Mose, and an orphan, Addie, travel from town to town, and make money in every dishonest way. Although it is a little old movie, I think it is a good movie for ESL students.
I feel I haven't done much today, but it went so fast. Mainly, I answered questions from students, I am spending a lot of time for this these days, about schools, tuition fee, and programs. VEC is having more students now, so it is important to give appropriate answers to them. Also, I visited other blogs to list my blogs, but there were so many... Well, I will keep working on this.
Have a nice evening everyone.
