More than 130 students from 26 countries are now on their way to study at Griffith University and Queensland Institute of Business Technology in Semester 2, 2014. Here’s what a few of them had to say about their GELI experience.
“I really loved my experience here at GELI. Through my English course I have learnt a lot and made many new friends from different countries and cultures. I enjoyed the extra activities that GELI provided to all students, specially the group debates as it helped us practice and improve our team skills and communication skills. I would encourage other students to come to GELI, improve their English and enjoy the Australian lifestyle ”
– Ariel is from China and will commence a Bachelor of Graphic Design.
“Through the Science Without Borders program, I was given the opportunity to study at GELI, and at Griffith. When I arrived at GELI I didn’t know any English at all! It has taken me 11 months but I’ve graduated from DEP and am ready to complete my six-month exchange for my Exercise Science degree at Griffith. At GELI, I was always going to their social activities so I could meet new people, speak more English and learn more about Australian culture and the cultures of my classmates. I love living in Queensland – I really like the Australian way of life. It’s a multicultural society with a beautiful, natural environment.”
– Elonai is from Brazil and will commence a Study Abroad program in Exercise Science.
“The best thing about studying at GELI is the opportunity to meet so many people from different countries and learn English in a multicultural environment. The teachers are very dedicated and friendly and always keen to help you succeed. I started my studies in General English Level 4 through to the Direct Entry Program 5 months ago. I am now confident that my English skills will help me in my studies and open new career opportunities for me.”
– Adriana is from Venezuela and will commence a Master of International Business.
“China’s education system is really different to Australia. When I first arrived I was worried I wouldn’t be able to adapt but the teachers were really understanding and helpful throughout my studies. GELI offers a flexible and independent teaching style, which has allowed me to be more autonomous with my studies and improve my time management and computing skills. I felt the teachers were advisors rather than supervisors which made my learning experience very enjoyable and helped me have a clearer idea about my future university course. I am really happy I chose to come to Australia and study here at GELI; I am now ready to continue my education and continue enjoying the amazing Australian lifestyle.”
– Zhang is from China and will commence a Bachelor in Engineering.
“What I enjoy the most about GELI is the teaching staff. They are not only the best at teaching English, but they’re also really good at providing useful study techniques that I will be able to use in my future university studies. The classes, activities and teachers have taught me how to be independent and organised. Without learning at GELI I would of found it really difficult to adapt to the Australian university style.”
