One of the most difficult poster presentations is the "Farewell to BEA" theme for the Advanced EFL course students. This is especially tough since students will have to say goodbye to BEA once they have finished the Advanced course. Nevertheless, this presentations allows them to chance reflect on their time at BEA, and then present on how their lives changed during their time with us. For this year's topics, students explained how BEA played a role in helping them improve their English language skills, make friends, set goals, and become culturally aware. Despite the smiles, there are always a few tears by the end of the last presentation. However, our students leave us knowing that they have the confidence and language skills to help themselves and make it on their own.
