Embassy Brisbane video competition – Embassy Experience

Embassy Brisbane students

At Embassy English we believe in the full student experience – living and breathing English in an English speaking country, while making friends from all over the world. The Embassy Experience Competition gives students the opportunity to reflect on their experience and to create a personal video.

There aren’t many places where you would find twenty- nine nationalities studying and learning together! Embassy English BrisbaneEmbassy English Brisbane is proud to currently welcome students from twenty-five countries and Embassy teachers from four different countries. Currently at the Brisbane campus there are students from Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Brazil, Korea, Thailand, Switzerland, Turkey, Taiwan, Japan, Italy, China, Russia, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, France, Spain, Peru, Canada, Sweden, Laos, Ethiopia, Nepal and India. Embassy also has teachers from England, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.

The Embassy Experience competition was held in February this year. Students worked together to create a video sharing their memories and experience in Australia.

What a privilege for the Embassy English team to be part of our students’ English language journey as reflected in these very impressive videos.
