Recently our friends at Study Queensland held a video competition called “Best Semester Abroad.” People from around the world were asked to submit videos documenting why they wanted to learn English abroad in beautiful Queensland, Australia. Winners were chosen from across the globe to receive language study scholarships. One special winner, Summer Chang from Taiwan, was awarded a scholarship to study English at Embassy Gold Coast. Check out her winning video below, and read more about Summer’s experience below as part of our Embassy Alumni series!
I came to Australia as part of a program called Best Semester Abroad, which is run by the Department of Trade and Investment Queensland, and I was lucky enough to get a scholarship with Embassy English as part of this program.
It’s always been a dream of mine to study abroad rather than in my home country of Taiwan, I thought it would be better to learn English in Australia and also embrace the local culture.
I’ve always thought that Queensland is a very beautiful place, and when I arrived on the Gold Coast and saw how amazing it was, I was so happy that this is where I was going to be doing my studies.
I feel like I had a basic understanding of formal English when I came to Australia, but studying at Embassy allowed me to become much better at conversations and explaining myself in English; I also learnt about Australian slang and abbreviations which was very useful.
I think for a really authentic Australian experience, studying at Embassy English on the Gold Coast is a really good choice.
Embassy English promises that students will reach their English speaking goals; ensuring a better career, education and LIFE as a global citizen.
