Antoine is from France. In his spare time he enjoys playing sports, especially basketball. He also likes video games. His favourite subjects at school are math and sport, but he is also good at science and English. Antoine hopes in the future to become an architect, an engineer, a scientist and a professional basketball player. To be successful, Antoine believes it is important to have a good understanding of the English language.

Fabiana is from Milan, Italy. In her free time Fabiana likes to go out with friends and enjoys going for runs in the parks in her city. She decided to come to Australia to improve her English because she likes the language and because it gives more opportunity to find a job.  Fabiana plans on staying in Australia until December and in this time she hopes to learn a lot.

Jihyun is from Korea. In her free time she enjoys listening to music to help her relax. She has always wanted to become a teacher since she was young. Jihyun had a friend who studied in Australia for 1 year who recommended her to do the same.  She hopes to have improved her English by the time she returns to Korea so in the future she can teach English to children.

Coffee Club! 4th June

It was a chilly Tuesday afternoon for Coffee Club yesterday, but lucky for us, we were  still able to sit in the student garden and make the most of the sunshine!

However, we did have to move our mat a couple of times as the sun disappeared behind the trees, but it was good to get up and stretch our legs after each incredibly long game of uno 🙂

We played around 4 games in total, each one finishing in a battle to the end. It was hilarious to watch play out. At the end of each game Luc had a new suggestion for a rule that kept the games very interesting. Thanks Luc 🙂

See you all again next Tuesday for more fun and of course tim-tams!

Crepe Making Competition! May 31st

Last Friday afternoon we had a Crepe Making Competition in the student kitchen. We had a range of delicious toppings including; nutella, whipped cream, bananas, strawberries, golden syrup, 100’s and 1000’s, coconut, marshmallows, chocolate and nuts.

We prepared our mixture and then got busy whipping up our crepes.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups plain flour
  • A few pinches of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups of milk

METHOD

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Add a little water and mix to desired consistency. Cover and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking oil. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, pour batter over pan, tilting from side to side so batter covers base in a thin film. Cook pancake for about 1 minute or until underside is golden, then use a spatula to flip. Cook other side for just under a minute until golden. Repeat with remaining mixture, spraying pan with cooking oil between pancakes.

 

Once everyone had made their crepes, it was off to the decoration station to begin creating the masterpiece.

Absolutely delicious. I couldn’t possibly choose a winner as they were all so amazing.

And lucky for us it was such a beautiful Friday afternoon we could all sit outside and enjoy.
