Hi, my name is Chantel and I'm from California, and today's topic is what are your plans for the future?
Well in the near future, I will travel to Korea unless a typhoon comes. I won't be able to go to Korea if the typhoon comes because all the flights to Korea will be canceled. In Korea, I will eat as much Korean food as possible, as long as it isn't too spicy because I don't really like spicy food. But, I will also go to the beach if the weather is nice, and most importantly, I can't return to Japan unless I have bought souvenirs for my friends and coworkers. What about you? What are your plans for the future?
