Congratulations Cambridge Students!!!

We want to say goodbye and good luck to all our lovely Cambridge students.

Last week we had the speaking exams at school. All the students were happy with the exam and felt that they were well prepared.

On Friday we had a farewell BBQ at the pass with graduation speeches, it was a lovely day and everybody was in a great mood.

On Tuesday we had the FCE exam at school and CAE on Wednesday.

Michael ‘shouted’ everyone a drink at the Cafe Oska on Wednesday after the CAE exam finished.

It was a great group of FCE and CAE students. Special mention to the wonderful Javier who was here for the third time!!! He has already done FCE and has just completed CAE. Hopefully we will see him again for CPE.

Intermediate B Cooking Class

“Best cooking class ever!!!” Caroline, teacher of Intermediate B, said today.

The class started with some recipe research on the internet. Followed by a trip to the supermarket to buy all the ingredients.

Then the cooking started, tables were checked and there was a special guest ‘Daisy’.

Ending with the eating of all the lovely food.

Just another day in Byron Bay.

Banking and BBELS Students

We all remember how hard it is to start a new life in another Country, that is why at BBELS we try to help students with everything they may need. Such as a mobile phone,  a bank account, a Tax File Number (TFN) or even going to the doctors or supermarket.

That is why every Tuesday morning at school students get help opening a bank account. This is probably a student’s first real English lesson, and it’s free!!! This is also a great chance for students to learn some useful English w: withdrawal, deposit, ATM, EFTPOS, balance, statement, lend, borrow, interest, currency, transfer, overdrawn.

Sam our lovely banker is here every Tuesday from 8:15 -9:00 to help students open a new account. You can join him any Tuesday if you need help, or have any banking questions.
