Clemente is from Chile. He comes from an amazing family and has an awesome relationship with his six brothers. He is currently studying business at the University of Chile. Since he was a small chile he has been practicing soccer and also loves to skate and surf.

Ines is from Spain. Before coming to Australia she worked as a pre-school teacher as well as going to university. She will return to university next year to study psychology. Ines has always wanted to visit Australia as it was her dream destination and she thought it would be the best place to learn English. Her hobbies include going to the gym and meeting her friends.

Patrick is from Switzerland. He likes to run, surf, and snowboard. Back home he meets with friends every two weeks and they play different sports like workout circuits, athletics, and running. He studied to be an electrician for 3 years and now he works for a security firm where they make fire, video, and security systems. He programs and installs the systems for clients. He is in Australia to study English especially his vocabulary.

Paula is from Spain. She loves her family and has a special bond with her mother. The family loves to spend time together and make amazing food. She also loves to do sports especially tennis which she will play while here in Australia. Paula studied to be a sports teacher and has been working for a year in a school but realised that she wanted to travel. She is in Australia to study English but is also very excited about seeing this beautiful country.

Florence is from Switzerland. She’s had lots of experience in the travel and tourism industry. She was always fascinated about getting to know other cultures and dreamt of foreign places. She then fell in love with surfing and the game changed. Florence spent the next 6 months in Portugal and enjoyed spending most days at the beach. She’s also a big fan of swimming, a passion she shares with her sister.

WHITES BEACH – Gabriel M Pacheco

I went to Whites Beach in Byron Bay a few weeks ago, and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.

I was with 3 friends of mine, with one surfboard and it was such a beautiful day. We parked the car at Broken Heads and took the trail to the beach.

The day was clean and the water was beautiful, the surf was good, and the beach was deserted.

 The beaches in Byron are already beautiful but this one was stunning!

We drank some beers and surfed a bit, it was one of the best days of my trip here in Australia.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes beaches with fewer people than the famous one for example.

Take some beers with you and have a beautiful day!

The Environment – Adrienne’s Native Speaker Class!

This week in Adrienne’s Native Speaker class the topic was the environment. Students discussed what they thought the most discerning issue for them was and the general consensus was plastics.
As part of this class, the students went off campus and collected as much rubbish as they could. Some walked to the beach and others walked to the soccer fields. All together the students collected 6 large bags of rubbish!
What a success!

4. Hire a bike

One of the cheapest and best ways to get around Byron is by bike and there are plenty of bike trails that begin in the town centre which take you through local rainforests to the beach. Come to reception and you can get yourself a bike for just $2 a day. You can’t get any cheaper than that!

5. Day trip to Nimbin

Nimbin is totally stuck in the ’60s. A unique village with a very hippy vibe! Jump on board and book a Happy Coach with Byron Bay Touring Co. You are guaranteed a great day out in the hinterland.

6. Local markets

Byron loves its markets and there’s always something for everyone also there are plenty of markets to explore in the Byron region. Some of the most regular markets are – Byron Bay Artisan Market (October to March, every Saturday night), Byron Bay Markets (first Sunday of every month) & Byron Bay Farmer’s Market (every Thursday morning).

7. Snorkel or scuba dive at Julian Rocks

A protected reserve for the gentle-natured Grey Nurse Shark, Julian Rocks is also the perfect place to look out for Sea Turtles and around 500 species of fish! You can choose from an Intro Dive, a Certified Dive or a Snorkel tour.

Snorkeling

8. Visit Crystal Castle

If you want to feel a little more spiritual then head to Crystal Castle which is located in the hinterland behind Mullumbimby. With tranquil gardens, the world’s largest crystals, and a daily peace experience. You’ll leave Crystal Castle feeling calm and centred!

9. A night out in Byron

Byron is small with a big town feel and it certainly has enough pubs, clubs, and bars for everyone. There’s live music on most nights of the week but the weekend is when it really heats up with local musicians playing in the streets. You only need to walk around to discover them for yourself!

10. Sunrise from Byron Bay Lighthouse

The Lighthouse walk is a must. Get up early to see the sunrise or take a picnic and watch the sunset! The Lighthouse sits on Australia’s most easterly point and the views are amazing! The walking trail from Byron Bay’s Main Beach to the Lighthouse will take you around 45 minutes each way. It’s also worth taking a detour down to Little Watagos beach.

Market Day with Kristy’s Upper-Intermediate class! December 12th

Off to the market!  A magic bus, amazing students, smiles on dials and a bit of spare change in the pocket: what more do we need?  Oh, that’s right, a perfectly sunshiny Byron Bay day 🙂

Have a read of the reviews written by our awesome Upper Intermediate class:

Epic Market Day
We were at the market today and we took a cool bus. It was like a 10-minute ride and I enjoyed the view from the top deck.
There were different kinds of market stalls where you could buy fresh vegetables and fruit as well as different dips and juices.
During the whole market, two musicians were playing music. The sun shone upon our heads and after a while, we looked for protection under a tent, where we ate the delicious food we bought.
In conclusion, the morning was well spent and we really recommend the market if you like fresh and delicious food! – Celine and Dario

Today we went to the farmers market with our English class. We took a beautiful flowery bus that cost two dollars.
It was a nice place to have a good coffee and the best muffins around Byron Bay. Furthermore, we can find the best fresh vegetables and flowers.
Then, after having walked around the entire market, we spoke with a German girl who sells vegetables and fruits. She was really friendly and happy to speak to us.
Finally, we recommend taking a hat because it was really hot! – Maria Laura

Farmers Market
We have just taken a really nice bus to go to the market. Our teacher told us that the bus will be free but in the end we had to pay 2 dollars.
We were on the bus for 10 minutes and then we arrived at the markets. There were a lot of food stalls.
First we bought an escargot from a bakery and a smoothie from a juice stall. It tasted very good. Then we walked past the stalls. We tried some dips with chips and fruit. We had a nice conversation with the woman at the passionfruit stall. She explained the difference between the cheaper passionfruits and the expensive ones. The passionfruit which were cheap weren’t so good looking.
Then we talked to the man at the dip stall. We talked about the tasty pesto dip and then we were listening to the live musicians and gave them some money because the music was beautiful. We hope they will be famous soon!
The time passed very fast because the market was amazing. Then we had to take the same bus to go back to school and now we are sitting in our classroom and have to write this blog. – Christian and Lya

IMG_9143

Today we went to the Byron Bay Farmers Market. The colourful bus took us right there which was very useful.
At the market, we experienced a very good atmosphere and a farmer even gave us some bananas for free.
There were a lot of things to see and try. our favourite was the fresh-pressed sugar cane juice with passionfruit and lime.
We saw all kinds of people, young people, old people, but no dogs as they are not allowed in the market.
We have a good message for everybody who spent too much money at the market, there is an ATM on the spot!
The farmers really seemed to enjoy their job which inspired us.
After these good experiences, we went back to school with the same bus and a big bag of passionfruits. – Kazuya and Mathieu

Looking forward to the next match.
