Hi, I am Erica.
I am doing my work experience at Smart School Councils Community.
I arrived in London 10 months ago, and these are the things that I wish I knew when I arrived at my school:
- I wish that I had someone that I could sit with.
- Someone that could show me what class I am going to have next.
- Someone that could explain me how to do the homework and teach me the things that I don’t know.
- Someone who could introduce me as their friend to other students, give me advice, make me feel comfortable and and support me.
This is the site that you can use to see 5 ways that international student can make friends .
This link below is a game that you can play “It’s Your First Day At A New High School. Can became popular.’’ This game can be like a guide for new students , how can they behave or treat someone.
I think that the schools should make a welcoming team, for students that just arrived in the country and are new at the school. And at that welcoming team they could put different students that can speak different languages, that can be very helpful and more comfortable for the new students.
My first day at school wasn’t very good because I was very nervous, I didn’t like the uniform, and to make things worse the girl that I was following left me at the canteen alone in a big table. I felt very sad because I didn’t know nobody and I missed my friends that live in Portugal, so I decided to call my mother and she told me to go to the student service and someone can help you find the girl that you were following.
So I went to the student service and I explained the receptionist that I was new and the girl that I was following left me at the canteen , so she called the Portuguese teacher, and she asked me if I wanted to follow a different girl. She told me that the girl is Portuguese, her name is Analia and that I was going to like her so I accepted.
She called Analia and Gisele told Analia that I am going to follow her. Since that day we became friends, she presented me to all her friends and the other students, she helped me a lot and gave me the support that I needed.
