Hi everyone, I’m Chanikarn, or you can called me Prim. I come from Bangkok, Thailand and I’m 16 years old. I will be studying in Henley High School for 3 terms (8 months). Since I was young I always wanted to study abroad because I wanted to see how they live and how they study. Adelaide is my choice in which it is not too busy, full of nature and not so many Thai people goes their because I want to study and improve my English skills. People here are nice and kind and they are always be there for you to help.
I’m studying in Henley High School which is a very good school for international students because they have international centre which they can take care of you. You can choose your subjects that you would like to do. There are many interesting subjects such as Drama, Design and Psychology which I cannot do in Thailand in my high school time!
Henley High School is very nice to international students. They provided excursion for us which is interesting! Such as Zoo sleep over and it was beautiful trip where we can see the animals that we cannot usually find in Thailand and it was good to spend time with other international friends.
I spend a lot of time in the city with my friends because we like shopping! And there are variety of shops which you can choose and spend money on it. Also there are many good place for you to go rather than shopping such as museum, library, zoo or cinema.
My homestay was lovely and kind to me. They always take care of me like I’m really a part of their family. You can ask or talk to them in a comfortable way so that they can help you when you feel homesick or bad. They also took me to many places such as Victor Harbour and The Zoo which are very nice places to spend time together as a family.
I recommend it for everyone. Study abroad is interesting and fun! You can also get a lifetime experience and it will make you a lot more independent, open-minded and accept other people more. Also you can get to know many people around the world from another country and it helps you improve your English skills. I’m sure that one day I’m going to be back for studying or working again!
