Moe from Japan 12 weeks General English and Demipair

1. Why did you choose Gold Coast?

– Because I heard that there are a lot of people who go out without shoes here.
And then, I thought the people are able to relax, I like that.

2. What was the reason to bring you to overseas?

– I just wanted to study English and wanted to see different cultures, different life styles, and different ways of thinking about many things.

3. What was your level of English before you came to Australia?

– Before coming to Australia my level was elementary.

4. What was the difficult thing as a Demi Pair for you?

– The difficult thing as a Demi Pair was “Having a heart to heart talk.” Normaly a lot of Japanese don’t tell their real feelings. But in my case, it wasn’t only Japanese (me). My family was also anxious about me.


5. What did you do on the weekend?

– I spent most of the weekends for shopping, hanging out with my friends, and going out to night clubs and some bars. I went to the beach and tried to do snorkeling here on the Gold Coast. Brisbane city is close to the GC, so some times, I went there to meet up with my friends.

6. How did you feel studying at I.W.H.P?

– It was nice to meet Adam and Hiroko. If I went to the other school, I couldn’t enjoy my life in Australia like this. I.W.H.P is very homely.





Hello, Nice to meet you.
My name is Hiroko and I am a Student adviser at I.W.H.P.
I have been living in Australia for 8 years. I came here on a working holiday visa in 2009.
I love travelling but I have always dreamed about living in another country. I believe that Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and that the culture, nature and character. I have always wondered what it looks like?
What I can learn?
What the differences between my country and other countries are?
Of course the purpose was studying English.
I’m still learning a lot of things so it never ends.
Learning another language is very useful and fun and I’ve been able to meet a lot of people because of my English.
No it is your time to change your life!!
I.W.H.P is always here for you to help living in Australia.
