Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Ambre, I am 17, turning 18 next week! I’m from a small town in Belgium called Namur. My favorite things to do include swimming and surfing. I would also like to try Windsurfing!
Why did you choose to study in Byron Bay?
I didn’t know about Byron Bay until my Mum showed me about it. I don’t really like big cities and I also love the ocean, so Byron Bay was a great fit!
What has been your most magical moment in Byron Bay so far?
I watched the sunset whilst sitting out in the water on my surfboard. That was probably my favorite moment so far.
What are your favorite things about Byron Bay?
I like that it is a small town, and you can access everything you need by bike or by walking. Also, the nightlife seems good!
What were your weaknesses in English before coming to Australia? Tell us more about your teachers and classes.
Speaking was my main weakness, I learnt a lot from my English teacher in Belgium, though. Kathleen and Dan are my teachers, and they are great- I also really like my class. We recently went out to dinner together to a new Korean restaurant.
Are you in homestay? If so, how is it?
I love my homestay family – they are so lovely and they cook great food!
I love the people; the teachers and I also love participating in the activities.
