I enjoyed very much studying when I was living in my village. When I arrived in the new country, the people around me proposed me to attend school and study in order also to learn the language, which was very important for me at the beginning. The school subjects, mates, teachers as well as the way to learn were different from the ones in my place. Despite the difficulties with the new language, I explained the things I already learned to my new teachers and to the people supporting me, which was helpful for my learning in the new country. It was also important to ask for certificates of each course or school year completed because they are usually requested for future learning opportunities such as university or work interviews.


Explain your past experience and education at school to the new teachers and persons that support you in the host country and talk to them about your educational goals.
