Cydi is already missing you Mini!
Today our lovely Himeno returned home to Japan. Mini has been an absolute joy to host. It's really special when you witness the progression of some students. When Himeno arrived, she was too shy and uncertain to speak English. Mini has left with a new nickname, a barrage of Australian slang, and is confident to hold a full conversation in English.
I was wondering why her mother contacted me on her arrival, thanking me for giving her a "rest". The rest involved intensive golf, gym and English classes for 3 months straight. Mini could finally explain in her own words that her normal day in Japan has her up at 4.30am, a 1hour bullet train ride, training, school, training, then home for bed at about 11pm. No wonder she needed a "rest"!!!!!! #aus_mini #golfingprotege #homestayfun #australianenglish #langports #favouritestudent #goldcoastlife #learnenglish #newexperience #greatoutcome
