I am so happy that I can study overseas and I am enjoying my life in Australia now. Before I came, I knew nothing about Australia. But I am glad to meet with Joanna Lin from First Global 6 years ago, she gave me a lot of advice about where to study and the suitabl course I should choose, that's why we are still good friends after many years! I still remember the day I first arrives Australia, I can feel the new start of my life and lot of challenge which bring me a lot of knowledge and interest. My English was not good and I feel shy to speak to other people. But I try my best to talk and learn the way AAustralian vowel not as good as US and UK, howeverm I believe if we use the same grammar, there is no differences between US, UK and Australia.
Australian dollars were going up when I was studying. Therefore, I need to find a part time job to afford my expenses. During work, I experienced how to deal with clients and learn the cutomer services. This knowledge can never learn at school. It is very good to get a part time job when you are studying. But try not to work with Asian people, this is the best way to earn some money and learn Australian culture at the same time. This is your experience and you never can get it in Hong Kong.
For me, Perth Australia is a very good place for studying. It is a quet place, and there are not many entertainment attrations. I hate studying when I was in Hong Kong, but I have to read book when I have nothing to do here. Therefore, I found my reading skills improved a lot in Australia. Thanks my parents spent a lot of money for me to study.
If you have a chance to study overseas, please do not think it will be easier than studying in Hong Kong. YOu need to study hard and have your study preparation done to get your degree. There are some people send back because they never study hard.
