The Byron Bay English Language School (BBELS) opened in 1998 with the aim of providing high quality English Language tuition in a beautiful and natural environment and to compliment this educational experience with a range of activity options.
BBELS has helped thousands of students from many countries to improve their English skills. We are very proud of the high quality of our academic and support services.
Classes focus on effective communication in English. Teachers use modern texts, audio/CD, video/DVD, local media and internet to improve your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. You will also be given regular homework and do excursions to local attractions and cultural events as part of your studies. Please see a recent excursion.
At the end of every 4 week General English block, you will be tested to check your progress.
Intermediate to Advanced level students also join our Electives program. Electives run for 4 weeks. Students choose their elective class in week 1 of each 4 week General English study block. Electives classes run every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon from (1.30 - 3pm). Students choose classes that focus on their needs or interests. These include Vocabulary & Speaking, Grammar, Australian studies, Cinema studies, Work & Hospitality, wellness plus many more. Please see more information about our Electives
So we have a dedicated activities service for our students. Max Donati is a long term resident of Byron Bay. His knowledge and experience is something that BBELS students greatly appreciate. Max loves golf, swimming, beach volleyball and poker. He is also a fluent Italian speaker, a gifted musician (guitar and vocals) as well as an Australia Croquet champion.
