How did your first impressions compare with what you knew about NZ or expected about NZ before you arrived?

If it did matter, can you tell me why?
I want to now ask you some questions about the 6 week orientation programme you have just completed
Thinking about the last 6 weeks, what areas of the programme have you found most valuable?
Thinking specifically about the AUT orientation programme what did you enjoy/find valuable?
Thinking about sessions held by other agencies what did you enjoy/find valuable?
Are there any issues/subjects about transition to life in NZ you feel were missing or not covered sufficiently by the Mangere programme?
What did you least enjoy or find difficult with the programme?
