Michael Niederberger has been here with us at Lexis English | Byron Bay for four weeks – after an initial two weeks that was then extended, as he enjoyed it too much here to want to go travelling afterwards!
Q: Michael, what have been your favourite things about studying here at Byron Bay?
A: Well, the weather was really good! You can also go for a quick surf after school – it’s a mix of learning English and sports, and enjoying the weather.
Q: And what did you make of your fellow students?
A: They were all really nice – there were a lot of other Swiss people but not just Swiss German, also Swiss French and a good mixture of other nationalities.
Q: How did your teachers help you?
A: Katherine and Claudia were both really lovely in the class, and every lesson was varied which made it really interesting.
Q: You were only supposed to study for two weeks and then extended to four weeks – why did you decide to stay longer?
A: It was the whole package – nice people and surfing – I enjoyed it too much to go travelling! But now I know that I can always come back.
Here is a video that we made where Michael talks about his best memories of his time here at Byron!
