Eglantine’s summary of her exchange

“During my time at SAC, I got the opportunity to experience many Australian school things. I decided to come to Australia to learn English better and to experience the Australian way of living as well as the experience of being away from my home, family and friends.

I had the opportunity to experience and participate in Year 9 and 10 Languages days. On these days, I did a presentation on escargots and crêpes and the history behind them and then showed them how to make them. I was able to play pétanque with both year levels, visit the Central Market, and eat at a French restaurant.

I had opportunities to give presentations on ‘Languages in France’, ‘What languages have offered me’, ‘Why France is France today’, the French Revolution and French politics. I also went to younger year levels to present to them about My Life in France. This was good as it gave me more English-speaking practice than I thought I was going to have.

I chose to study English, French, IPP, Art, Outdoor Ed, Society and Culture, Religion and Psychology. I particularly like Society and Culture, Outdoor Ed, Art and French. I found a big difference in every aspect of the school as it is less strict here and I liked how every student has a relationship with their teachers. I also liked how school hours are less in Australia and that I got to go home before 7pm.

I have really enjoyed my experiences in Australia and at SAC and I can’t wait to come back!
