Mit Einverständnis veröffentlichen wir den erhaltenen Zwischenbericht von Marco Hanselmann aus Widnau SG, der sich zur Zeit an der Eurocentres Sprachschule in Cairns befindet. Er hat die Schweiz ohne jegliche Englisch-Vorkenntnisse Richtung Australien verlassen und musste bei der Sprachschule die englische Sprache von Grund auf neu erlernen. ("Really Level Beginner") Er schreibt hier auf Englisch (unkorrigiert!) und zeigt somit seinen Fortschritt nach 6 Wochen Intensivkurs in Cairns! Wir sagen BRAVO Marco, wir sind stolz auf Dich!!
I`m a student in Cairns and I will stay 7 more months. The time goes very quickly. Today was Sunday and tomorrow is Monday. 4 weeks later I will change to another school in Sydney the first week was for me very difficult to speak and to understand what my teacher said. The first and second week always after school in the afternoon I slept for 2- 3 hours.
I have fear and try every day push up`s, nunchaku and healthy eating. If you don`t work and eat fast food, I will get fat! I like learning, exercising and delicious food. My homestay family is very good and my homestay mother cooks very well. We also have a swimming pool in garden. I hope the next homestay family cooks well. If food is not so good in Sydney, I will change homestay family.
My subject is always English and we check up everyday. Past simple, present continuous and future facts. In English I get a lot of time but I don`t learn everything. When I started at school I couldn`t write and speak. But now I can but not perfectly.
I travel no so much, because my budget is not so big. I can only work for 20 hours per week but my English level is not so good now. Australia is a very nice country. Some times I go with Korean friend fishing at the sea here in Cairns. I think every body must want to visit Australia and maybe for 3 months go to school.
What do you think about my story? Write soon.
See you soon,
