It is teacher Josie’s last week here at Lexis English | Byron Bay – and so we thought we’d feature her on Meet the Teacher before she disappeared!
Josie has been a teacher here at Lexis in Byron for six months, during which time she has brought to life the Movies and Songs Options class, made great friends with her students, and dreamed of learning to surf – whilst lying on the beach with a beer.
Josie was born in London, but grew up in both Ireland and Kenya; as well as having lived in Scotland, France, Spain, New Zealand, Canada and right here in Australia.
She studied Languages at university in Edinburgh, and speaks French as well as her native English.
She always wanted to be a travel writer; and her creative side lives on – she has been known to dazzle people with her watercolours! Her dream holiday destination is the Caribbean, as she absolutely loves the beach.
At 11pm on a Saturday, you’ll find her having a few glasses of wine – and her top pick whilst in Byron Bay is to head to the Rails for live music.
Last, but not least – Josie’s top tips for learning English are… Speak English outside class and live with Australians!
