Priscilla is from Switzerland and lives with her family of five including her mother, father and two younger sisters.

He studied English in High School and hopes to continue improving on what he has learnt. When he was a child, Ethan visited Australia for one month and felt it was a very good country. He now returns to learn English and chose Byron Bay for the variety of foreigners who live and travel through this area.

Othman is from Saudi Arabia. He enjoys football, tennis and PS4, as well as going to the beach with his family. He came to Australia to learn English, which he needs in order to study at university.
