“I like life here very much. I went to school every morning at 9 am to talk with my multinational friends, and after school, I went to city tours, shopping, and played with my Australian friends. My local friend took me to a restaurant and gave me a really valuable experience. I even recently assembled a Christmas tree with my host mother and decorated the exterior of the house with illuminations, even though it's the middle of summer!”
