Aussie Cooking! September 28

Today we made Lamingtons, a very Australian cake!

This delicious dessert was enjoyed by all the students, even though it may not have turned out exactly as planned…in the afternoon, our lamingtons turned into Lamington Balls! But they tasted just as yummy and were devoured just as quickly as those made in the morning cooking session.🙂

 

RECIPE

To make the Vanilla Sponge:

1½  cups milk
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp bicarb soda
½ tsp salt
250g Nuttelex margarine
1½  cup sugar
4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Whisk milk and vinegar together and set aside.
Mix flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt together in a medium sized bowl.
In a large bowl, cream margarine, sugar and vanilla until well combined, then alternate adding in the milk and the flour mix. Mix together until smooth, then pour batter into a greased and lined 20cm square cake pan for 25 minutes.
Turn out and cool on wire rack. When cool, cut into 2 inch squares.

To make the Chocolate Icing:

4 cups sifted icing sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
½ cup milk
½ cup boiling water
3 cups dessicated coconut (for coating)
Mix together the icing sugar, cocoa powder and milk in a medium bowl, then add boiling water and mix until smooth and well combined. Place coconut into a small bowl.
Dip cake pieces into chocolate using two forks, then roll in coconut.
Leave to set on plate before eating.

**Note: we catered for different diet restrictions with this recipe to ensure as many students as possible could enjoy this food. Therefore, this recipe is free from nuts and dairy, but dairy milk, butter and eggs can be used if you have no allergy or aversion to these!

Coffee Lounge! September 27

Today we held two sessions of Coffee Lounge at Lexis Byron Bay.

At the morning session, we played a very exciting round of Lexis Jenga, building one of  the biggest towers I have seen!

img_4930

The students with the impressive tower shortly before it came tumbling down!

The students answered the questions on each brick they pulled from the tower and learnt many new words and phrases along the way, such as ‘advice‘, ‘regret‘, and ‘speeding ticket‘.

As the tower grew taller and taller, each turn became more difficult. The tower wobbled and threatened to fall many times, and nobody wanted to be the one who made it fall!

Eventually, after almost reaching the limit of how tall a Jenga tower can grow, it came crashing down onto the table. The students celebrated with TimTams!

In the afternoon, we enjoyed the beautiful, sunny weather and sat out in the garden. The students chatted amongst themselves and as a group, learning about each other’s culture and their experiences in Australia. Having students from Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Brazil, Korea and Japan, there was a lot to share! We learnt that students in Korea study from 7am until 9pm, which shocked everyone at the table! We also discussed the different accents in Australia and other English-speaking countries, the difficulties with getting Student Visas for Australia, and showed the newcomers how to enjoy your coffee by drinking it with a TimTam straw!

The students enjoyed their coffee in the sunshine!

She completed high school in June and is now taking a gap year to learn English, travel, experience different lifestyles and push the boundaries of her comfort zone. She also hopes to figure out what she wants to study at University next year; regardless of what course she chooses, she wants to study in English which is why she is here!

Nil is from Spain and has just completed high school. One of his favourite things to do is photography and hopes to one day take the kind of photos that are seen in magazines. He also likes watching films, reading and playing video games. He came to Australia to study English because he believes the language is important to know and wanted to travel far from home.

Learn to Slackline! September 23

Today we had Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution came by to teach our students how to slackline!

Before getting onto the slackline, we warmed up the muscles we were about to use by doing some stretching and did some balance exercises to focus and calm our minds.

Then it was time to try to slackline! Olmo had a helping hand nearby and gave lots of great advice to help each student find their balance and walk along the slackline.

Everyone had fun trying to balance along the line and are looking forward to improving more at the next slacklining session!

Trivia! September 22

This afternoon we had a Trivia quiz to test our knowledge in the categories of Science, Geography, Music and Sport.

img_4779

The students were faced with questions such as “In which sport would you use a ‘sand iron’?” (golf), “Which rock group did George Harrison belong to?” (The Beatles), “Who developed the theory of relativity?” (Albert Einstein) and “What is the capital city of New Zealand?” (Wellington).

Everyone brought different strengths to their team, with some students being more knowledgeable about Science and others about Sports.  There was much discussion about the right answer for each question and, when they knew the answer in their own language, figuring out the correct English word for it!

img_4776

The winning team was Shinsuke and Roman, who argued about almost every answer! Well done to them for working out who had the correct answer for each question! Enjoy the beers🙂
