Dong Gi Kim joined us from Korea last week to study English and Surfing, and he is loving his time at Global Village. I took the opportunity to ask Dong Gi a few questions about his experience so far, and he was all smiles.
Q: What is the best part about studying here in Noosa?
A: The friendly people, great waves and beautiful weather.
Q: Have you tried surfing before you came here?
A: No, never. There are no surfing spots in Korea that I know of. The water is cold and often dirty. The beaches are not as nice as here.
Q: So, did you stand up in your first lesson?
A: Yes, I stood up on the board for about 5 seconds on my first day!
Q: And have you improved since then?
A: Yes, I have made it all the way to the beach a few times… it is so much fun. On my third lesson the conditions were fantastic, nice waves
Q: How would you rate your teachers here at GV?
A: Fantastic. They are friendly, helpful and patient with my limited English. They make learning fun.
Q: Have you made many new friends since you’ve been here?
A: Too many to count. I now have friends from all over the world. My list of friends on facebook is much longer than it used to be!
