Bringing English to Life is our philosophy at Embassy English. It is more than unique activities and programmes; it is embedded in everything we do. By Bringing English To Life for our students, we enable them to experience the language in a way that surpasses simple classroom instruction. Our study centres provide multiple opportunities for students to challenge their English speaking skills through these BETL activities in the classroom, in the community, and online. At Embassy Gold Coast, students recently ventured out into the city to practise using superlatives.
Did you know that at Embassy, we often take you OUTSIDE into the REAL WORLD to learn English?

The teacher, Betty, decided that learning in the classroom wasn’t enough. She organised our students into groups (with different nationalities in each group) to compare fast food restaurants in Surfers Paradise and find out:
To find out the answers, they had to read menus and talk to staff (and each other).
This is what happened next:
These students are using English for REAL PURPOSES in the REAL WORLD!
One of our students couldn’t resist buying an ice-cream.
After working together to complete the assignment, we had a quick stop beside the beach to enjoy the view before returning to the classroom.
Back in the classroom, we compared our notes and talked together about our answers. Activities like this really help to build confidence!
