THOUSANDS of international students from all corners of the globe are choosing Byron Bay to learn a new language and immerse themselves in our local culture.

Brazilian national Eduardo Diuana Neto said studying at the Byron Bay English Language School (BBELS) had been "one of the best choices" of his life.

"The teachers are really competent and, moreover, I made real friends from all around the world and through the school I found quite a good job where I worked for five months," the 26-year-old said.

A lifelong fascination with football inspired Eduardo and a few of his BBELS comrades to join Eureka FC, an experience he said he will never forget.

"When I came to Australia, I had never thought to come back to play football as I used to in other times," he said.

"Fortunately, I found a club based on positiveness, friendship and, last but not least, the simple seek for fun."

BBELS student services manager Max Donati said the school provided a range of programs.

"Our school motto is Learn To Live and that's exactly what our students experience when they study in Byron Bay," he said.

"I facilitated the Eureka FC program to give Eduardo and the four other students from Switzerland and Chile a regional experience of Byron Shire."
