Study Gold Coast Careers Festival
On Wednesday 10th May, our BROWNS Gold Coast English for Academic Purposes (EAP) 3 and 4 classes attended the Study Gold Coast Careers Festival which was held at the Convention Centre. It was bustling with high school and university students, together with some people who just want a change in career. The EAP students practised their listening, speaking and note-taking skills through participation in workshops and presentations on a variety of career-focussed topics.
