Londy is our popular and cheerful student from Korea who always puts a smile on our faces in reception when he comes in to say hello!
Londy has been studying with us here at Lexis English | Byron Bay since June 2013! He took a short break to study on the Gold Coast, but then came back to Byron, as he missed it here
He has been studying General English, and is in our Upper Intermediate class.
Londy, tell us why you chose Byron Bay:
I wanted to study with less Koreans! I want to practice English all the time. It is so free and quiet here – it’s such a beautiful town. My teachers here have been so helpful, and I go to GIL a lot to work on my homework.
Tell us about your job and how you found it:
I’m working as a cleaner at Aldi, and before that I worked for three months at a hotel on the Gold Coast. I found my job at Aldi through a friend, and had an interview with the manager. I had worked on my CV in GIL and the teachers helped me write it. It has helped my English as I’m hearing English instructions all the time. I have had some misunderstandings though – when I worked at a hotel on the Gold Coast I cleaned the wrong floor as I didn’t understand the instructions!
What have you learned here that you will take back to Korea with you?
It is a different Korean culture here – with parties, BBQs with friends and enjoying some beer. I think I will take that home!
Also next month I am going to Europe to visit Germany, Croatia and other Eastern European countries – I have met so many friends here that I can now to go and visit in Europe!
Thanks Londy – good luck – we will miss you!
