Student: Jinsung Park from Korea
Course: General English (GE) 15 weeks
Hi, my name is Jin and I have studied at Languages International for 15 weeks. It has already been a long time to stay here. Actually, I didn’t like to stay in school when I first came here because I didn’t know anyone and I couldn’t speak English very well, except some vocabulary.
But after I got used to staying in New Zealand and studying here, my English was much better than before, and I had made many friends. Now, I have many friends who come from various parts of the world so I’ve learnt interesting customs, culture and even their basic languages. I think it’ll be remembered in my memory, which could be one of the most valuable experiences in my whole life. And the school offers many different outdoor social activities like horse riding, bowling, surfing, canoeing and even skydiving. It’s fantastic joining the activities with your new school mates.
The other thing I want to tell you about is the Learning Centre where you can study by yourself with lots of useful learning systems. Furthermore, you can enjoy watching DVD’s, reading books and listening to the tapes in there if you want. If you are not sure about grammar,spelling or pronunciation while you study, you can always ask one of the teachers, they are always ready to help you.
Anyway, before I came to Languages International, I had never even thought about going to University in New Zealand, but now my thinking has been completely changed. Not only does Languages International have great facilities and friendly people to help you no matter what you need, the natural environment in Christchurch is gorgeous. So that is why I have decided to stay and go to University here and I would definitely recommend coming to Christchurch if you want to study English in a foreign country.
