LI Sijia (Adam) – Zhuai City, China
I am Adam. I am eighteen years old and I come from Zhuhai City in Guanagdong, China. I am studying a course so I can get university entrance at the end of this year. I am studying subjects that I am good at: Physics, Mathematics with Statistics, Mathematics with Calculus, Art, Painting, Economics, Chinese and ESOL. I am living in a home-stay with a New Zealand couple and their children in Lyall Bay which is near the airport and the beach. It is only 15 minutes from school. They are very friendly and good to me. They take me on trips with them. Last holidays we all travelled around the North Island. I especially liked the hot springs in Rotorua. I am happy to be a student at Wellington High School. There is a very good choice of subjects. I like the education system here because it is more like the university system and it is good preparation for university study. I find the people here very friendly and I have become more independent since I have been here. The town is safe and going out is no problem.
