Question Please help

Hello people of Papua
I am a university student in South Australia.
For my project I am translating an article from English to Tok Pisin.
Could someone please read it and tell me what mistakes I have made.
I think I have got the phrases wriong as I have translated it word by word rather than as expressions.
I have really enjoyed working with the language, I have found it very creative and interesting.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Jen.

Now here is the English version
Although there is overcrowding in schools in Papua New Guinea, Australian universities have good lessons to offer foreign and indigenous students.
Australia has many universities to choose from.
One with many choices of study is the University of South Australia.
If you are feeling like studying in Australia you need to know a few things about the kind of education you can take.
The University of South Australia can well manage all kinds of students from other countries.
At the university there is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Support Group for people of indigenous and islander backgrounds.
This support group understands foreign differences that can arise in university time and prepares ways to deal with it.
Friends meeting and parties and something to do are prepared for the study year and can help students to meet people who have the same interests.
There is a good adult place way for people who donít have an education usually required for university education.
Research studies are there just for foreign students and this counts students from Papua New Guinea.
University wins can make university study a happy time for students and put to their CV at the end.
There is information there to prepare foreign students who are thinking of coming to Australia to study.
There is also a computer pre-leave workshop which is followed with a returning home workshop to help students who may need help in settling into the change of living and demands of studying in Australia.
Besides the workshop the university offers information about on-arrival ways, find out information on ways of a student in South Australia and get used to living in a new country.
Students can find it a little too much to get used to a new country and new studies.
There is a foreign students newsletter and a support network of workers for foreign students.
If your English needs some work there are studies of Academic English Development.
The university also has much information about finding accommodation in Adelaide, South Australia.
There is a computer place that have private rental and shared house.
This is for foreign students house and school shelter.
On arrival and little time house is available in backpackerís houses, cheap hotels and chairs and tables rooms.
The universities computer place have tourism information, newspapers and books in South Australia.
If you decide to bring your family with you to study in Australia there are first class child look after at most schools.
Australian universities have many things and books and plenty of substance.
Book places work together to allow students to cross borrow giving good plenty information.
At the University of South Australia you can take up one of the practice sciences, talk or computer studies to name a few.
The Bachelor of Natural Substance Management at Roseworthy school is a like doing for indigenous people ask in vegetation and water management.
Computer studies are an important part of the tomorrow of New Guinea giving people more use of computer market.
Computers are helpful in getting people on the net that are already in small businesses.
Other studies are nursing degrees that have many places and good work.
Hospitals in New Guinea need to work with a number of nurses with university studies.
In Australian universities there are so many things to learn and that it is always possible to find studies of the kind you like.
Many clever people have said their student years were the best of their time, this can be true at a place like the University of South Australia.
Australian universities can offer the safe time of a small town area where you are safer than many places in the world.
A university education can turn around your time although it is hard to leave home and move to a different country but it will be possible if you face forward to what you want when you are finished.
It may be hard work but you can get a good job when you finish.
Information will be sent in the post or from email, fax or telephone
If you want more information, go to this computer place.

If you have gotten this far you have done well, thank you.

Thanks but still not sure

I have not been able to have my translation verified yet. it is for an assignment and it needs to be back by the end of this week. My tutor will accept it as it is although it would have been good to have it translated acurrately.
Thanks for your interest, it is appreciated.
