                                               which were different from what I had previously
                                               learned in China. It helped me to adapt to the
                                               new environment and most importantly, on the
                                               academic language front, ensured my English skills
                                               were up to the University standard.
                                               The most important thing UOW College Australia
                                               taught me was critical thinking. There’s millions
                                               of things to learn, but the most important is the
                                               learning method that could change your whole
                                               life. The critical analysis courses incorporated in the
                                               language study at College are the golden key that
                                               can open the door for academic courses later on.
