Review from Yoshi who took12 weeks demipair and English Course

The reason why you went to abroad, working holiday

I fell in love with Orlando Bloom when I was in the first grade of junior high school. I was attracted to foreigners since then and I liked foreign countries, I dreamed about living in foreign country. While I was working in Japan, I still wanted to live abroad, I wanted to be able to speak English, I was dreaming that I could not give up, so I went through it.

What is it like to live in Australia/ Gold Coast?

It was comfortable for me to have a relaxing time. I went to visit other major cities, but Gold Coast is the best if you want a relaxing life style! I thought. As soon as I arrived here, I got sunburn from strong sunshine, but I enjoyed the summer swimming int the pool altogether!

The reason I thought to do the demi-pair

Because I found IWHP when I was gathering information about au pairs. I wanted to know how to live with child overseas, built a relationship with children, and how to communicate with them.

What was your family like?

It was cheerful and always laughing and it was amazing! Lol We went shopping together and they took me around the beach four times and had lunch. They treated me as a part of the family. We had drink, party like the family.
Because the children were big they were like my friends and also English teachers, sometimes the younger daughter (She is a 6 and a half year old girl who are strongly mindful) and fought like a real sisters. But when she introduces me to her friend that I am a Big Sister and I was so moved. And also she said to me that she’ll miss me on the last day. By the way I missed them so much when I said good-by. Three months was too wonderful. I cried a lot.  Lol


Daily work details

All rooms, cleaning of bathroom washing laundry Bed making
Children’s breakfast. Drop off and pick up from the bus stop. Children’s dinner
Depending on the shift of demipair mother. Sometimes I didn’t do so much.

What was the difficult time of Demi pair?

I do not think there was any particular difficulty. If I have to say something,  I was surprised that children have such a strong and free mind.  But I really enjoyed my Demi Pair for 3 months!

One point advice to everyone who wants to do demo pair / working Holiday in the future.

A few years ago, Working Holiday was a just dream for me. Lol There is a feeling that I should have moved earlier, but I strongly think that it is not too late to start something now. When I was in Japan, I was worried about it so much but It was not a big challenge for me when I arrived here. I have no regrets coming to Australia. I definitely regretted it if I had not come.
Dumpier program guarantee your Australia life for 3 months with Australian family. So if you can adapt to their lifestyles not through all your own opinions, you can build a good relationship I think you can spend a fulfilling 3 months

Testimonial of IWHP

I was really really happy to study English at IWHP.
Adam & Hiroko treated us kindly and understood our feelings well. They were absolutely invaluable to me!!
He was like a father we love. His English is easy to understand because he speaks clear and basic for us. And he is good at giving us some strange nicknames. I got MARIO, LUIGI, YGG and OSAKIAN. That’s funny.
Besides this, he talked to me a lot so I can speak smoothly. Of course I need to study more but this improved my English ability!
I love this school. I was able to meet some wonderful friends there! e.g. M-chan with a mysterious aura lol And you can see a perfect angel baby if you go to IWHP!!!
I think Adam is a crazy teacher but the best one for me. Hiroko always supported us so that we could live comfortable in Australia.
On the last day Adam said “Drop in anytime” I was very happy to hear this . Thanks for everything! I had a special three months with you guys:-) Love ya!!
