I’m a French student. A few years ago I couldn’t speak English. After two years in the EFL program I’m able to have a conversation, watch any series or movies I want in English! It gave me the will to change my purpose in life, today I want to become a teacher and give back to my country what I have learnt … The teachers are great, and the course is very interesting ... Being bilingual is definitely an asset in life.

Oistins Fish Fry, Oistins, Christ Church

Oistins is an active fishing town on the south coast and is a hub of activity on weekend nights. On Friday night particularly, the big thing to do is go to the fish fry in Oistins. The food is the main draw - excellent fish, (tuna, swordfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, flying fish), lobster, chicken etc served in an extremely informal setting. You can get your fish grilled or fried depending on which vendor you choose from. It’s all cooked on the spot in front of you.
