This week one of our Intermediate classes enjoyed a day at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. This is always a great experience for our students and so our teachers take their classes there quite regularly.
At the sanctuary students are given a private 1 hour education session where park rangers talk about Australia’s reptiles, birds, mammals and marsupials. If the students are lucky they will get to touch a variety of animals including possums, gliders, and pythons.
Our teachers act as guides for the day explaining the lives and habits of the animals in the park. It is a fantastic way to see Australian animals in a relaxed park setting, and of course it is also helps improve our students’ English.
Our visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is just one of many places that we take our students to. During their time here at BBELS students also have excursions to local waterfalls, forests, hinterland villages and beach-side towns. This helps our students understand more about the local area and maintains their motivation levels over the many weeks and months they study here.
