Video Transcript: Juwon from Korea

Juwon is from Korea and studying English at Southern Cross. She loves the koalas on campus and sharing her culture with other students. Learning English away from the major cities has forced her to speak English all the time.

Studying English at Southern Cross University has been a wonderful experience. I met a lot of nice friends and the teachers are very friendly and they try to make us improve our English. I like the Koala hospital at Southern Cross University.

I can see a lot of koalas and they are so cute I was a university student in Korea and I had to write a lot of reports and I was not good. I learnt a lot of new skills about how to write good academic reports.

I live in share house in the city of Lismore, like downtown in the centre of Lismore and I could meet a lot of people in my share house and some are Australians and some are European and they are very friendly. We share our cultures and it is so good. People that live in Lismore are very friendly and they will talk with me when I walk on the street.

(Back in Korea) I was in a big city and there were a lot of Koreans and sometimes I spoke Korean but I can speak English every day (now) so I think it has been very good for me - improving (my) English.

The library is very good, (it has) a lot of computers and we can use (them) whenever we want. (The library also has) a lot of books, so sometimes I read a book, some English books and it helps me to do my homework.

Studying English at Southern Cross University has been a wonderful experience.
