International Student Testimonial:

"My learning style is to concentrate when I'm in class, study hard every day, learn a new word from routine, talking to Kiwi friends, talking to my host family. The time that I'm staying here it was great. I have good experiences from New Zealand also I have known great persons. I'm very happy to be here. 

I think that I'm so lucky to have great friends around me, and they are always helping me. When I don't understand, my friends in class is going to explain to me, moreover, my host family, they such a best host family that I ever had before. They teach me the new word to me and speak to me every day and also my teachers There are teachers for international students and subject for international students, we called that is ESOL. In this subject, there is subject support. When I want some help I can ask them. I have many Kiwi friends. I improve my English by talking with my Kiwi friends every day and hang out with them. This is made me more confident in English."
