- About Deakin
"Two years ago, I changed my job in Japan, which made it necessary for me to know how to speak, read and write English.
I started looking for an opportunity to learn English quickly. I came to Melbourne and Deakin University, and I've been here for six months since. The main reason for my coming to Australia was to improve my English skills and to make as many new friends as I could.
I have been very fortunate in being able to have good teachers and to meet many good friends here. This includes not only my Deakin friends but my soccer team-mates in Melbourne and others as well. My friends often help me and give me support while I'm here. My time here in Australia would have been impossible without them."
