Moe from Japan
Hi I’m Moe from Japan and I’m 17 years old. I have been studying here at MRGS for one year. This was the first time for me to visit overseas so I was really nervous but studying at MRGS has been amazing. I was not good at speaking English when I came here but teachers and students are very kind even if I can’t speak English properly. They try to listen to me and help me if I need, so it is very comfortable to study here.
New Zealand is known as a very International country, there are students who come from more than 60 countries at MRGS so you can learn about many different cultures. I have friends from all over the world!
I played 1stX girls rugby and 1stVI volleyball, it was a good opportunity to communicate deeply with friends and improve my English. I also joined school activities like mediator training and academic mentoring.
I really appreciate everyone who has been involved in my stay in New Zealand. I want to say a big thank you to my amazing friends, teachers, coaches, host family and my family in Japan. I’ll never forget my great time in New Zealand.
