ByronBay2012 recommends the Language School Byron Bay English Language School (BBELS).

I really liked the school in Byron Bay, it was definitely the right choice for me. I learnt a lot and now also have such a cool ’Aussie’ slang. What I disliked was the Freelancer who offered the completely overpriced trips and who tricked the students with his Bike-Rental. That needs to be changed. Thus, we organised most of the excursions ourselves and we had a lot of fun. I was really lucky with my classmates and met a lot of new people. I would visit Byron Bay again.
