Taiwanese Study Tour

Student Testimonials

Firstly, everything was strange for me but now that I got used to the Australian lifestyle everything is only new, not strange anymore.
In the short time I have been here I have already tried a lot of new experiences and I have felt great emotions!

Bribie Island is one of the most beautiful places to do an exchange year. Six months full of new experiences, new Australian friends., Tim Tams, an awesome host family and a lot of fun! I really enjoy living where other people spend their holidays.

 Homestay Testimonials

“We have hosted several international students from Korea, China, Sri Lanka and Germany and have found it a very rewarding and enlightening experience.

To watch the students gain confidence in their new environment, having a giggle when they pick up some of the “Aussie ” slang, feeling proud when they express their wonderment of our great beaches and rugged countryside and sharing their different cultural values, are all combined to make it one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experience you can imagine.

We have hosted international students for periods ranging from 1 month to 12 months and in one case, our international student became part of our family and stayed with us for 7 years !

We would have no hesitation in recommending families to “give it a go” and try hosting international students, we are sure you will thoroughly enjoy the experience.”

“What a great experience it is to be homestay parents for international students who visit us here in the Bribie Island area. As a retired couple we have the opportunity to get out and about and away from our usual routine. It’s like having a holiday with a new friend and getting to know them and showing off what a beautiful country we have here.

We have also had the opportunity to visit our homestay students and get to experience their country and hospitality. These young people are the future of our world and as we bring them into our lives and keep in contact with them after they go home, we extend our family around the globe”.
