Student - Salma

Hey, I'm Salma Leal from Mexico and I’ve been here since February. I've learnt lots of things during my exchange, like travel on my own, how to be more independent and how to be around people who have a different culture than mine. At Mt Roskill Grammar School people are really interested on learn about your culture and they help you if you struggle. In the school there are lots of international students who make you feel really comfortable because they are in the same situation as you, so it’s easier to express yourself and share emotions. My host family in my opinion is the best, as they support and encourage you with everything but the most important thing is that they help you to improve your English.

Thanks to my international friend Bianca (International Student from Italy) my experience here in New Zealand couldn't be any better and I don't regret choosing this country and this school.

Hola me llamo Salma Leal, soy de Mexico y estoy aqui desde Febrero. He aprendido mucho durante este intercambio; como viajar por mi cuenta, ser mas independiente y estar con personas cuya cultura es totalmente diferente a la mia.
Aqui en Nueva Zelanda voy a la escuela MRGS donde los alumnos se interesan mucho por saber de tu cultura y te ayudan si es que tienes un problema. La escuela esta llena de estudiantes internacionales que te hacen sentir comoda, ya que estan viviendo lo mismo que tu, entonces puedes expresarte con mas facilidad y compartir emociones. En mi opinion mi Host Family es la mejor ya que siempre te apoyan en todo pero en especial te ayudan a mejorar tu ingles.

Gracias a mi amiga Bianca (estudiante internacional de italia) my experiencia aqui no pudo ser mejor, y no me arrepiento de haber elegido este país.

Salma Leal, 2014.
