My time at ICTE-UQ was extremely joyful, as I had the opportunity to study interesting topics and to be taught by brilliant teachers. Fortunately, my experience at UQ was not only limited to classes but clubs as well. My times in conversation club and chorus club had broadened my experience at UQ via being able to engage in various activities. Also, I made many friends from different countries which increased my knowledge and understanding of different cultures.
When I first arrived in Australia, my English was quite bad, and it improved during my studies at ICTE-UQ. The teachers at ICTE-UQ were very helpful at developing and enhancing my English skills. On top of my speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, I’ve learnt how to write an essay in proper format. I can now converse with Australians with no major problems.
I was fascinated by how people from different backgrounds who had spoken different language throughout their whole lives, were able to converse through one language. This connection that can exist through the English language has inspired me to set a new goal, by spreading the language to my own people as well.
I have taken my first step by taking a TESOL course where I will learn how to teach English.
