He is also a keen surfer and hopes to have the opportunity to surf in countries all over the world.

Amaury is from Paris. He really enjoys playing sports and hopes to improve his surf skills while he is in Australia. He has previously been to Melbourne and really loved the city. While he is here this time, he wants to immerse himself within the Australian culture and experience the Australian way of living.

Dave is from Switzerland. He enjoys playing soccer, tennis and basketball. He works as a garden landscaper. He visited Australia in 2017 and loved it and that is the reason he chose to come back to study English here. He hopes to get work here in Australia in the future.

Louise is from Belgium. She loves animals and has always had a passion for horse riding. She was studying communications at University, but felt as if it is was not right for her. Instead she decided to travel abroad, first to Portugal and now Australia, to see if a career involving horses was more suited to her. She is still searching for her right career choice after growing tired of working on farms and for now plans to just focus on her English.

Coffee Club! 4th June

It was a chilly Tuesday afternoon for Coffee Club yesterday, but lucky for us,ย we wereย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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