What piece of advice would you give to students considering studying in Australia?
Ⓐ “Hmm let me think… I think Australian people are more friendly than other countries [laughing], to be honest. So, I think most of them are very happy to help you improve English. They’re very nice. I remember the first day I arrived in Australia, the taxi driver, he talked with me a lot, I was a little surprised. It was good.”
How has this course prepared you for the future?
Ⓐ “Not sure at this stage, at first I need to have a holiday in Australia [laughing]. So next week, I will travel with my husband for two weeks to Sydney, Cairns, and Melbourne.”
