As October has started, a lot of kindergartens in my city opened their doors for new kids, who will go to school from next April. My two-year-old son, who was born in March, is going to attend a kindergarten. So, on the first day of October, I visited one kindergarten and submitted an application to a teacher.

Since we, my son and I, had been given a leaflet about the preschool beforehand, which tells what you will do with other kids, it seems that he's looking to go to the fun place soon. Because Japanese academic year starts on April first, my husband and I decided to send my son to the preschool from April next year. He will spend in preschool for three years before elementary school, which is compulsory education, with junior high school. One thing I'm concerned is that my son is one of youngest children in a class because his birthday month is March, the last month in an academic year.

But, as a mother, I am relieved which preschool to go is settled. I am also looking forward to it.

         By the way, fall comes here to my town. One of balmy flowers in this season is orange osmanthus, or Kinmokusei in Japanese. I like it very much and found flowers in broom in my neighborhood. Even though you're in the distance, the aroma of the flower makes us calm down.

Hi Maki.

I hope your son enjoys kindergarten.

Your writing is quite natural. I think it's because you use conversational phrases and words.

Anyway, here are a few suggestions on your writing.

He will spend in preschool for three years before elementary school

Orange osmanthus is a fragrant flower which blooms in autumn.

I haven't heard 'balmy' used to describe flowers before. I'm not sure if 'fragrant' is exactly what you mean though. What adjective would you use in Japanese?

Hello, bsa, thank you for giving advice.
As you mentioned, I have realized that the order of words in sentence and how to put "the" are difficult points for me.
I'd like to continue writing! Your advice was encouraging.
Thank you very much.
