Summer is well and truly here in Byron, with temperatures in the 30’s; luckily the sea was only a few steps away for a cool down!

Simon is from Basel, Switzerland. In his free time he enjoys any sport related activities, with his favourites being handball, mountain bike riding and snowboarding in the winter. He works in a technical office looking after their customers in Japan, India, Brazil, South Korea and England. He needs to improve his English as when he returns to Switzerland he will move to a new department where he will need to use English every day. After studying with us for 3 months he will travel Australia and South East Asia, using English to meet people from all over the world!

Ivan is Spanish. His biggest passion is music and he plays in a band in Spain. He works in an NGO (No Government Organisation) but is taking a 6 month break to to study and travel. He chose Australia for his studies because he loves the nature, sea and the incredible environment and beaches here!

Bruna, from Brazil, loves dancing and music. She would like to work in the tourism industry and for this it is important she has a high level of English. She chose Australia for her studies because of the people and climate, and Byron Bay because it is a small city with beautiful beaches and a great reggae scene!

Luciana, from Brazil, is very excited to be here learning English! She has just graduated from law school and now wants to improve her English so she can further her career. She chose Byron for her studies as she is also very interested in practicing yoga and knows this is a great place for it! Another reason for choosing Australia for her studies is the weather, happy people, nature and cultural diversity!

December’s Table Tennis Tournament!

Much loved teacher Claudia was once again special activity host, this time for our monthly Table Tennis Tournament!

The tournament started with 18 players and the students each picked out a folded up name to make the pairings fair and random.

The winners of each round then had their names put back in to be selected again!

Everyone played really well, but there could only be one champion….
