Do you speak English?
Fact: The English language is the third most natively spoken language in the world. It’s a well-known fact that Byron Bay is one of the best destinations in Australia for a sun, sand and sea holiday. But a lesser-known fact is that it’s also one of the best destinations in Australia for international students and travellers to learn English.
If you’re in need of proof, here are our top five great reasons why:
Location, location, location
When it comes to destination appeal, Byron Bay is off the charts. Located on the most easterly tip of Australia, it’s a mesmerising coastal hamlet with stunning beaches and balmy climate. Described by Lonely Planet travel guide as “one of the most attractive stops on the whole East coast”, Byron is an energetic, feel-good place with loads to see and do and a cosmopolitan aura that sets the pulse racing.
Quality and standard of tuition
Located in the heart of Byron, the Byron Bay English Language School (http://www.bbels.com.au/) is a fully accredited NEAS English language school. It’s also a member of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) and the International Association for Language Centres (IALC). What’s more all teachers are required to have a university degree, ESL qualifications, teaching experience with overseas students and foreign language skills. General English programs are a perfect preparation for students wishing to improve their all-round English language skills, focusing on the four core skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking.
Learning English is not the only course on offer at the Byron Bay English Language School. The school also runs a range of programs including Cambridge courses and an IELTS program designed for students who want to continue their studies at tertiary level.
Imagine going to a school where the extra-curricular activities on offer include surfing and diving. You’ll get that and more at the Byron Bay English Language School. Beyond the school’s boundaries there’s also a whole host of other activities and experiences on offer. From hang-gliding, sky-diving and sea-kayaking to hiking, biking and nature walks to yoga, day spas and massages, the list of possibilities is as interesting as it is long. The hard part will be trying to fit them all in.
New friends and worldwide connections
One of Byron Bay’s greatest attractions is its people. You’re bound to make friends and connections that’ll last you a lifetime.
No matter what your reason, we know you’ll be happy you decided to study English in Byron Bay.
