IELTS Class Visit Byron Bay Farmers Market!

Yesterday, the IELTS class went to Byron Bay Farmers market in order to prepare for an essay about the benefits of buying locally.IMG_5220Pedro took the opportunity for shopping while the others wanted to taste new food and drinks.

IMG_5236Sofie, as a good friend, also bought tomatoes for Luciana as she knew she doesn’t like those from the supermarket, and she tried cane juice with Pol. Pol really like it whereas Sofie wasn’t convinced. IMG_5238Aurora bought rainbow fruit and everyone liked it. IMG_5248 Finally, Tomaso sampled pumpkin chili jam and said it had a delicious flavor, sweet and spicy. He bought dragon fruit too but didn’t already eat it so we are still waiting the verdict…IMG_5251
