Hello. My name is Ryu. I’m from Japan and I have studied at Rosmini since the beginning of 2015. When I first arrived I actually couldn’t speak English very well so I was worried that I would not make friends. Fortunately I got a lot of friends and my English quickly improved because I joined the first eleven football team. Football can communicate without language pretty much so I made friends without language. I tried to talk to them and this is how my English improved. I’m very proud of the first eleven at Rosmini and this will always be an awesome memory for me.

Mrs Whitcombe's Year 13 Engish students celebrated the end of a successful year with a lunch at The New Vietnamese Restaurant in Takapuna. Ms Lim and Ms Bell accompanied the happy group. 

My name is Paul (Seong Hwan) Kim and I’m a Year 13 student. I have been studying at Rosmini College since 2011. Unlike most of the other boys, I started at Rosmini College when I was Year 9 as an International Student. I remember that when I first arrived I felt very naïve and nervous and I, initially, struggled to settle into my new life as a student at Rosmini College. I had to break through a massive language barrier as I struggled to adjust to life in a country far away from my home in South Korea. To begin with I found it difficult to make new friends. Fortunately things started to get better for me as my English improved. I got better grades and reports, made really good friends and I joined school groups. This year I am thinking about my future and, more importantly, becoming much more competent at communicating and comprehending English. However, there are some students around the school who are still struggling to adjust.
