FCE Excursion to the Eumundi Markets

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???

Whilst many students had shot off to catch an afternoon wave or to spot an afternoon whale, this was the scene on campus.

Teachers Annette (Cambridge First) and Anne (Cambridge Advanced) were conducting feedback interviews with their students whilst the rest were studying hard in Cambridge GIL. Teacher Ali was running grammar club and teacher Oly was keeping the Saudi pilots in order whilst they did conversation practice. Some students were just chilling in the courtyard whilst Emi had found a quiet spot to do some work on her ipad. 

Teacher Suzie was busy with a Cambridge First workshop, the table tennis gang were in action and Tereza had found a sunny spot to do her homework in.
