Last week our FCE Classes had a fabulous day out at the Eumundi Markets. Equipped with a task sheet the students ventured out to explore this beautiful outdoor market and interview local stallholders. Back at school they had to write a review! Here is Sandra’s:
Have you ever been to a traditional market? All the FCE classes went yesterday on a fascinating excursion to Eumundi Markets.
Browsing the market you can find exotic fruit and vegetables, artisan goods such as statues and dreamcatchers, beautiful hand-made clothes and many more amazing crafted products. The market takes place twice a week in the mornings in a picturesque small town in the hinterland of Noosa.
One stall in particular caught my attention because an old man was selling beautiful crafted animal statues made from marble dust and white cement. He has been producing these for 28 years and still loves everything about it. He really enjoys meeting a huge variety of different people every week – and being in fresh air while selling his products.
This market is really worth visiting because of all the unique characters and fascinating arts and crafts. It is all about the motto “Make it, bake it, sew it, grow it”! It is just amazing!
A great day out with an authentic task and excellent results! Can learning English get any better than this???
