My name is Bashar El Haj and I am 22 years old. Lebanon is my home country and this is the first time moving away from my family. I came to Australia to complete my studies and my goal is to be able to speak fluent English.
I chose to study in Australia because it is a beautiful and safe country to live in. It is also accepting of different religions and cultures. I am currently studying at Ozford tafe. I am studying IT Networking. My college is a great place to study in, the teachers are very friendly and helpful, and they are also very motivating. I have made lots of friends at Ozford, students are very friendly and come from different countries like me. At Ozford there is alot of different courses to choose from and there is a lot of doors and opportunities open for students.
I heard about Ozford tafe from an agency in Lebanon and they said a lot of positive things about this college. Ozford is located in the centre of Melbourne with easy access to public transport, libraries and shopping centres.
English Language Student
Hi I’m Mana from Japan. I have been staying in Melbourne for 2 months and will go to high school next year. Now I study English at Ozford for high school. When I heard about Ozford I thought it sounded good and my acquaintance said it was good. Now Ozford has only one Japanese student which is me but I don’t feel lonely because the teacher and students are very kind to me. I do enjoy every day.
Now I’m making gradual progress in my English but i think my host family speak English well. When I came here I could just look around, NOW I can speak English with foreign people! I want to be good at English like the people here.
High School Student
Being an International student here in Australia, far away from you family, is a bit hard, although you gain an amazing experience and knowledge which makes you feel stronger and proud of yourself and also you family.
Australia is an amazing country which gives you many chances and opportunities.
I’ve been studying in Melbourne for quite a lot of time and it’s actually fun. Studying in Ozford College was a great choice for me. The environment is so friendly, interesting and entertaining. People who work in Ozford are people with passion and they are good at their jobs. They are always happy to help you with anything. Most of the teachers make you feel comfortable and the way that they teach you is peaceful and entertaining
at the same time.
In Melbourne you have the chance to meet people from different countries and cultures which is quite interesting. Also you can meet people with different beliefs, views and experiences. Studying in Melbourne is more fun than studying in my own country. I would like to live in Melbourne for a long time.

I must get a high IELTS score. My wife chose Ozford to study English. She believes Ozford can help me get good English.
The first I came to Melbourne, my English was not good. I studied GE for ten weeks and then continued
to IELTS program to make my English better. All people in Ozford helped me (eg teachers, receptionist, other students)
and I can use a room for prayer with some friend s with the same religion. I will always remember Ozford.
Last year I finished High School study and I decided to travel to Australia to complete my study at University.

Facilities are fine, only missing WIFI to facilitate our research. Living in Melbourne is great. Life here is simple.
Transportation is not bad. Accommodation prices are quite high and the Australian accent is quite charming!
