Three students from Kaichi International University visited Adelaide City in Australia for 3 weeks during their spring vacation. They studied English at a Flinders University language school and homestayed with local families.
The three students studied English everyday, went sightseeing around the city, and made many new friends. Their homestay families, their English teachers, and the Flinders University staff were all very kind and supportive.
Miss O: “My host family were so kind and warm. Language is different but feelings are same. I saw a lot of wild kangaroos near host family’s house. I usually ate toast and sweet coffee in the morning. My lunch are sandwich, apples and chips. I don’t like Vegemite!”
Miss T: “Australia has many Japanese made cars and driving speed is too fast. Traffic signal sound is funny. There are various countries food. Australian foods is so fatty. I think Australians usually eat chips.”
Miss M: “There are 5 member of my host family. Mother, father, older sister, younger sister and Japanese international student. There are very kind. I think it was good to have a homestay because I can take many communication. I think that was so hard to have a homestay because I can’t convey what I really want to say in English well. But I have gotten to be able to talking English by degrees.”
The three students obviously enjoyed themselves a lot. In April they gave presentations in English on their experiences in Australia and the International Exchange Committee members were very impressed at how much the girls’ English levels had improved! We hope that more and more students from Kaichi International University will take the chance to study overseas!
