I have stayed in Australia for two years, many things happened during this time. I have experienced a fantastic life in Australia and made lots of new friends. Some of them are Chinese, some of them are from different countries. Of course I have made lots of Australian friends too, they are all friendly and nice. I like to learn about other countries cultures and histories and I like Australia’s culture pretty much. Here, let me tell you something about the experience I had in Australia.
The school life in Australia is happy and fun. School starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:00pm. Students have chances to choose their favourite subjects and enough time to do their own things. Not like the school life in China, students nearly have no time for play or fun. In Australia, I even have a chance to take part into a science competition and win a reward. Australia students only have three lessons in a day and one for one and a half hours. There is a recess between first and second lesson and a lunch time in the afternoon. In China, students have 8 or 9 lessons a day which is different from Australia. School has canteen, there are plenty of delicious food there for sale. I often go there and buy food with my friends.
My favourite place in Australia is Hahndorf. It is a quiet and beautiful place with lots of interesting shops and buildings. I feel relaxing and comfortable when I go there, the air is fresh, the environment is clear and tidy. I would like to live there when I am getting old.
Because the study in Australia is not that busy, I have time for my own things. In my free time, I like going to boxing gym or drawing pictures. Through the boxing, I have made many Australian friends and also improved my English speaking skills.
Australia has many traditional foods, for example lamington. It is like a cake covered by chocolate and coconut, it tastes very sweet but I like it. I often eat it as breakfast or after school at home. It has became one of my favorite food in Australia. Another food I want to talk about is vegemite. It was the weirdest food I have ever tried in Australia so I remembered it clearly. It tastes very sour and dry, some people do not like it but some people do. For me, I prefer choosing any other Jam, but it is still a new food I try in Australia.
The State library in Adelaide is the coolest classical library I have ever seen. It looks like an old castle, I would describe it as the college Hogwarts in Harry Potter. I have a feeling of solemnity when I walk into there, it is like a time travel to the past time. There are many old books in this library.They are all precious documentaries which we cannot borrow. Sometimes, I go there with my friend and study together. I think studying in this way can improve the efficiency of my study.
My life in Australia is colourful and enjoyable. I have plenty of time to do my own things and have chance to study other cultures. Besides, there are so many splendid buildings and sightseeing for me to see. Therefore, I think Australia is definitely a wonderful place for people to study or living into.
