Where are you from? My name is Pai and I come from Thailand.
What do you like about living in Australia so far? I like living in Australia, I have been here first in 2012 then went back to Thailand with my husband. I came back and forwards a little bit. I like Australia, I like the people, it makes me happy. I like my house in Australia with my husband.
What do enjoy about the AMEP classes? I really like and enjoy coming to the AMEP, I like all the staff and students, and I like to learn. I love coming to class for social reasons, I get to meet people and learn about them, create friends, and it helps make me happy in Australia. I love Australia!
What helps to bring you a sense of belonging here in Australia?I go out to restaurants with my husband on Fridays often, we also go to the markets, and I like gardening and socialising with others, both Australian and Thai people. I like all people!
What is one of your dreams in life? I would love to heal people and make their lives better.
Anything you would like to share with us about yourself? I have a husband Geoff, and we have a nice house, I have two sons in Thailand, 34 and 28 years old, and I have two grandsons in Thailand. I like coming to study and I love being around people.
AMEP classes teach English language skills to help settle migrants successfully in Australia with people of similar backgrounds, experiences and goals.
Students learn about Australian values, cultures and laws, and a range of topics that will make it easier to work, study and enjoy life in Australia.
