“We have been here for only a week and feel like we have been here for a long time. Everyone, homestay family, teachers and students have been so kind & friendly. This has made our trip to study English very enjoyable & helpful for all of us. It is our first time out of Japan. I don’t have a favourite sports, I like all sports. My dream is to become a doctor, if I become a doctor I will return to NZ for work."
"I’ve had an awesome time and I wouldn’t wish to be anywhere else but here. This has been one of the best years of my life so far and New Zealand now feels like my second home! I would recommend this exchange to everyone! It really is an opportunity of a lifetime."
“I have had a very good time at Tuakau College. I have made many great kiwi friends, they are very kind and friendly. I want to thank my host family... I experienced many new things. Thank you so much”
