I still clearly remember when I first arrived in Australia. It was 46 degrees, which was the hottest day ever in Adelaide. Firstly, I was surprised about completely different whether between Australia and Japan. At the same time, I was wondering how would be my host family, how my school life would be… Now, I am having absolutely amazing time here in Adelaide.
I am studying at Seaton High School, and there are many differences from my Japanese school. In my PLP (Personal learning plan) class, all the students have to do work experience for a week. I did my work experience at International Education Services (IES) office. It was good opportunity to learn about how IES works for the International student and homestay family in South Australia.
On the weekends, I go out with my friends or host mates. In winter, it is the season of Australian football. I went to the Adelaide Oval to see the football match for few times. I have many favourite places in Adelaide, especially I really like to go to the beach. In Adelaide, there are so many beautiful beaches such as Henley, Glenelg, Moana, Semaphore and so on. I often go to Henley beach to see the sunset. With host family, I went to many places, and they made me experience a lot. One of my best memory is to went to Sydney trip and spent a weekend at the holiday house in front of the beach.
Since I came to Australia, I experienced so many things that I cannot do in Japan, and I am so thankful to everyone who supporting me. All the experiences in Australia is unforgettable memories and I will come back to my second hometown one day!
