About CIT

Lissette RojasWhen you were making your decision to come to Australia to study, what made you decides to come to the Canberra Institute of Technology?

My decision to come to Australia to study was made because my uncle who is Australian told me that CIT is the best place to study English because CIT is a government institute.

From your learning experiences in your home country, how were the teaching methods at CIT different?

It is very different learning here in Australia because I need to speak English all the time. Sometimes in my home country the teacher would translate the difficult parts but my practice in having to speak English all the time means that I am learning quickly and can now understand everything my teacher is saying in English. I’m gaining so many new skills and it feels like a great achievement.

Describe your first impressions of CIT?

My first impression of CIT was that it’s a very friendly place to study and the teachers are always there to help.

What part of your course do you enjoy the most and why?

The classes, because in there I learn things I have never been able to learn before.
