00:00:17 00:00:20 Hi, I'm Lieke, I'm 21 years old and I'm from Holland.
00:00:21 00:00:24 Hello, my name is Jennyfer, I'm 24 and I come from France.
00:00:25 00:00:26 There are so many things you can do here.
00:00:26 00:00:29 All the adventurous stuff is just so exciting.
00:00:29 00:00:33 Even though I'm studying, sometimes it just feels like I'm on holiday,
00:00:33 00:00:35 there's so much going on.
00:00:35 00:00:36 I'm really glad I chose Cairns.
00:00:37 00:00:40 If you don't like big cities, it's a really a good place to be.
00:00:41 00:00:44 The teachers, they're really nice, they're very helpful,
00:00:44 00:00:47 they're all so smiley and friendly.
00:00:47 00:00:50 In the classroom, the teachers use a variety of techniques,
00:00:50 00:00:54 and they work to help each student individually.
00:00:54 00:00:58 We've all been here a long time, so our students get to know them,
00:00:58 00:01:01 not only as teachers, but as friends.
00:01:01 00:01:03 We are WiFi throughout the building.
00:01:03 00:01:09 We have 2 state of the art computer rooms, where students can have access all day.
00:01:10 00:01:14 We also have a great cafe on our outdoor balcony area,
00:01:14 00:01:16 which provides morning, tea and lunch,
00:01:17 00:01:21 so students actually don't need to leave the school to go out for lunch.
00:01:22 00:01:26 When you come to Kaplan Cairns, we can offer 2 types of accommodation.
00:01:26 00:01:28 Home stay is a wonderful environment for students,
00:01:29 00:01:32 because they live, breath, speak English and the Australian culture,
00:01:32 00:01:36 from the moment they are met at the airport by their host family.
00:01:36 00:01:38 My accommodation in Cairns is a home stay family,
00:01:39 00:01:43 so I chose this kind of accommodation to practice my English more.
00:01:43 00:01:48 You really need to be in immersion of English to speak English all the time.
00:01:48 00:01:51 Alternatively, students are in a share apartment,
00:01:51 00:01:56 they have their own room, but they share their kitchen, bathroom, living facilities.
00:01:56 00:02:00 What I like about share accommodation is that you've got your own space.
00:02:00 00:02:03 There is a swimming pool located just at the back of the garden,
00:02:03 00:02:06 and you can just do whatever you want.
00:02:07 00:02:10 I like to be independent, so it's perfect for me.
00:02:11 00:02:14 The school is really well situated, it's close to everything.
00:02:14 00:02:16 5 minute by bicycle you have the lagoon.
00:02:17 00:02:20 The lagoon is a very beautiful place, it's like a big swimming pool.
00:02:21 00:02:24 The lagoon is a perfect place to chill out after school.
00:02:24 00:02:29 You just take your towel and your swim wear and just lay out on the grass, it's perfect.
00:02:36 00:02:39 The things that you can do with Kaplan is cable ski.
00:02:39 00:02:43 It's very close to Cairns so it's easy to go and it's very funny.
00:02:44 00:02:50 Cable skiing is like snowboarding on water, it's just so much fun,
00:02:52 00:02:54 it's just hilarious, trust me.
00:02:57 00:03:01 One of my favorite place here to go out is the Woolshed on Thursday night, lady's night.
00:03:02 00:03:06 It's very good, because all the students from Kaplan go there on Thursday,
00:03:07 00:03:10 so it's like you are in a party with your friends really.
00:03:10 00:03:15 The nightlife in Cairns is so much fun. It's just great.
00:03:15 00:03:20 People dance on the tables, definitely, definitely go to the Woolshed,
00:03:20 00:03:22 on a Thursday night.
00:03:26 00:03:30 One of the things you really need to do is go to Franklin Island.
00:03:30 00:03:33 That place was just gorgeous.
00:03:33 00:03:37 We went there by boat and first you just go into the rainforest,
00:03:38 00:03:42 and then you can just go snorkeling there, you can go diving.
00:03:45 00:03:49 We saw turtles, many, many just colorful, beautiful fish.
00:03:50 00:03:54 After that we had a really nice lunch actually, all sea food,
00:03:54 00:03:58 and it just felt like I was in heaven.
00:03:58 00:04:02 I need to continue to work on my English, but now I know I can travel,
00:04:02 00:04:05 and speak with everybody without any problem.
00:04:05 00:04:07 Life here is so good.
00:04:07 00:04:10 My English has definitely improved in those 7 weeks.
00:04:11 00:04:12 That's just amazing to see.
00:04:12 00:04:16 Being here has been unforgettable, I made such good friends,
00:04:16 00:04:20 and I don't want to think about going back at all.
00:04:20 00:04:24 I will never forget this time here in Cairns, just great, really,
00:04:25 00:04:27 you're going to love it.
