I've just successfully completed a year of Media Studies and an IT course at college. On September the 4th I start my second year studying English Lit, Geography, History and something else that I haven't figured out yet ( I wish it could be Japanese but the college only teaches European languages.. :( ).
We finished the first year on June the 15th I think.

I back to Uni to do the last year of my degree in October, but right now I'm studying (or teaching, depending how you look at it) at a language school, taking a CELTA course.

Our summer break last 2 months and a half, Christmas is 2 weeks, Thanksgiving is for 1 week, 1 week for Spring Break, and lots of other vacations sprinkled through out the year:p. But I'm hearing talk of change soon..:o:(.

Here schools are currently on mid-year break although in some other states they went back today. The school year starts at the end of January and finishes in December.

A full list of dates are here -> http://www.decs.sa.gov.au/custserve/pages/default/pubhols/

Universities start at the end of February or early March and have end of year exams in November.

Dates for the University of Adelaide are here -> http://www.adelaide.edu.au/student/dates/

My school got out on June 9th and starts on August 25th. Funny thing is a few days after school starts my family and I are going to Walt Disney World for about a week! :D I'll have no idea what's going on when I go back LOL! ;)

here the summer break is typically three months for elem/high schools, and i think the same for colleges/unis (i dont know for sure cause this was my first period at the tech.college i'm studying at and there was trouble with a law etc. so they shut the place down and the exams were moved to september).

in japan its one month right?

Ah, we don't start back until Friday, August 10 but 10th grade orientation is on August 2nd. It just seems that our summer vacations here are getting shorter

Well, for me... Uni here in Japan will finish on August 4th. BUT the problem is since I will be going back to Australia to continue my degree after that, I will miss 2 weeks of uni since it starts on July 24th! :(

I don't go to 'high school' (secondary school for us british) anymore YAY! Roll on Uni, that starts on the 1st October. Although I think high school was a pretty cool time, its college that makes you hate life hehe.
