People Talk: Culture

What are some unexpected observations about learning and sharing cultures?

That was my first time ever being a foreigner. I have enjoyed every little thing; the weather, the culture is so different with East Timor and I love the differences. I could meet lots of people from different countries around the world and they are nice and helpful. There were students from different countries studying at the same class with us (Timorese), some who have never heard about East Timor. We got to share with them about our way of lives in East Timor.

I have a better understanding of people's life in a big city, how people live in a diverse cultures, tolerance and obey rules to make life easier. I have opportunities to represent Timorese culture in some occasions in Melbourne, which required me to learn and understand more of some East Timorese's cultural things.

Studying abroad means you will learn from others as well as share your own culture to new people. during my stay in Melbourne, I have participated in many activities held by East Timor and Australia Friendship and ETSA (East Timor Student Association). Through the activities, Myself, together with other Timorese students, we promoted East Timor cultures and learn from the local people in order to improve our understanding in how we exchange our tradition and habits.
