This is just a big WELL DONE from all of us at GV Byron Bay to the FCE and CAE students who just got their results. Another amazing group who all did really well. Brilliantly, we had a 100% pass rate from the FCE class and some of the highest grades yet! CAE did incredibly well with the vast majority earning great grades. Well done guys and a big thank you to the teachers who put so much effort into their classes. You all deserve a big glass of bubbles!
This is just to let you know that we will be running our IELTS class in the middle of March. What is IELTS some of you may well ask?

There is currently a house cleaning job available for a german speaking student in Suffolk Park. $15 an hour for 4 hours every 2 weeks. If you are interested come and see Kate at Global Village as soon as possible. 🙂
Today we had both smiles and tears as we said goodbye to one of Global Village’s most treasured students, Gabrielle.
After 20 fantastic weeks here with us at the Byron Bay campus the time has come for Gabi to go back to Brazil. During the time spent here in Byron he learnt to surf and was eventually found in the water more than on land! He made many friends with whom he shared lots of laughs and memories, and of course, he has mastered the English language along with some Ozzie slang! 😉
We wish you all the very best for your future Gabrielle. You will be missed by all of us and we hope to see you again one day soon!
Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum!!!!!! On Friday we had the most amazing Spanish food cooked for us by Global Village Spaniards Sancho and Antonio. Spanish omelette and a garlic dip were on the menu. If anybody would like the recipes you will have to ask the boys directly. Apparently they are secret family treasures!
