Fay' s house is beautiful and she is a very easy-going person. Actually I wanted to know something about my school and learning English when I went to Australia, and I was very grateful that she gave me some suggestions. But due to my English was not very good, especailly speaking and listening. so unfortunately I didn't communicate with Fay a lot. Meanwhile, there was Jesse who was about to go to Melbourne University and gave me a lot of suggestions. So I hope my language will improve in the future and have more opportunities to communicate with Fay.
