Australia Immersion Program (July-August 2017) BoBo Cheng, 4C
I participated in the Australia Immersion program during my last summer vacation. It was a 7-week program and I studied at Fraser Coast Anglican College (FCAC) at Hervey Bay.
The major benefit of this program is that my English skills have improved. I stayed at a host family and I had a roommate, so I had many chances to communicate with them in English. My host mum and my roommate also taught me many new vocabulary. My communication skill has improved too as I made a lot of friends at school, and I kept chatting with them every day.
The school organized various activities for students. I joined Sport Days and Colour Run. The sport days was similar to ours in Hong Kong, but the colour run was very funny and meaningful. It was a charity activity that all participants need to pay 5 Australian dollars. We had face painting before joining the running races. All money was donated to a hospital in Australia. I was delighted that I can help the needy in another country.
