Katia Leite de Araujo arrived in Australia last April with her husband Marcel and daughter Bruna. They had made the decision to leave good jobs and a comfortable lifestyle in Brazil to give themselves and more importantly their daughter the opportunity to attain fluency in English.
Katia and Senior teacher Annette
When Katia arrived she could not communicate in English at all. Husband Marcel studied by day and worked hard at night in the local restaurants. Daughter Bruna attended Sunshine Beach Primary school.In a short space of time Bruna had Australian friends and was chatting in English. Marcel took pride in seeing the progress that his family were making and knowing that his sacrifice was worthwhile. Katia is leaving with good English and says that the experience has been wonderful. It was sad to say goodbye to this wonderful family and we wish them every joy in the future.
