International Greek students will soon be participating in the world’s biggest outdoor English lesson.
Taking place on Bondi Beach, international students from all over Sydney will help to put Australia on the international stage in an attempt to break a Guinness world record for the biggest outdoor English lesson.
Through this event, English Australia and the NSW government are aiming to attract more international students and demonstrate to the world that Australia is a top destination for education and travel.
“There is a real need to increase awareness both here and abroad that studying in Australia is not only world class, but has countless benefits to our economy,” said event founder Priscila Duarte.
“I speak to so many people who are completely unaware of just how beneficial international education is to our economy.”
Currently the international education sector is Australia’s second-biggest export earner after mining, and is set to expand to a $30 billion industry by 2020.
The exciting event is already sold out, with 3,000 registered students from more than 100 different countries.
The Biggest English Lesson will take place on Friday 12 February between 4.00 pm-8.00 pm at Bondi Beach (south end, near the skate park).
