Jesse Jung – South Korea – Listen in English
I really like to study at Boys’ High because I feel free. You have to learn to be disciplined and study and do things by yourself, where my parents would do this for me in Korea. You learn to be independent. If I have a problem, I get lots of help and support from the International staff and our teachers. I have made many Kiwi friends, they are really friendly people. On the weekends, we go biking around the river and watch movies in the Square. In town, there are Korean food shops and you can buy Korean groceries.

Frank Wang – Hong Kong

Frank

My name is Frank Wang. I am 17 years old, from Hong Kong and am a current student at Palmerston North Boys’ High School in Year 13. I have been at Palmerston North Boys’ High School since July 2014. The subjects I am studying are Geography, History, Physics, Maths and English (ESOL). My plan is to graduate from PNBHS and study Aviation at Massey University in Palmerston North. I came to study in Palmerston North, New Zealand to learn English, go to Massey University to study Aviation, it is cheaper to study here and it is a safe country. In New Zealand, the teachers stay in one classroom and the students go to different classrooms for different subjects. Also, in New Zealand you can choose 5 or 6 subjects for senior school, where you have to study 4 subjects and choose 2 or more in Hong Kong. My English has improved quite a lot from studying in New Zealand, as all classes here are taught in English and I speak English to my friends, my teachers and my homestay. At first, it is hard to be away from your friends and family, but you soon get used to it and you make some new friends here in New Zealand. Palmerston North Boys’ High School has a lot of facilities for learning and for sport. PNBHS has smaller classes than in Hong Kong. We go on a lot of trips to see more of New Zealand, such as Wellington, Napier and Masterton. Palmerston North is easy to go everywhere you want. You can walk from school into the city. Some students ride their bike to and from school. I would recommend for you to come to Palmerston North, because if you go to Auckland you will mostly speak Chinese as there are a lot of Chinese people there. Palmerston North is a quiet city, which is good for studying and sleeping. The people here are friendly. Palmerston North is very clean and has fresh air.
