I’m Rhys Wedlock of the Foreign Languages Department.
How are you?
Last week I took my first year students to Australia!
They’re staying in Melbourne for two months.
They’re studying English at college there ( http://www.engjoy.com.au/ )
with classmates from a lot of other countries.
They’re doing homestays, so they’re learning a lot of English in the daytime and speaking a lot of English in the evening.
First we flew to Sydney and did some sightseeing.
We saw the Opera House and took a ferry under the Harbour Bridge.
We also looked inside a beautiful cathedral (a big church).
Then we flew to Melbourne and went to all of their host families’ homes.
Everyone was excited but a little nervous!
The next day they had a placement test to decide their English class level.
I visited some host families and they were so kind and friendly.
I had to say goodbye to my students until December…
I’ll miss them but I’m looking forward to hearing their good English!!
My second year students are going to sell Australian meat pies at our culture festival on 31st October and 1st November.
Please come and try them…
See you soon!
