This is Takuto – recently our youngest student at 16 years old – who came to study at Lexis English | Byron Bay from Kindai High School in Osaka, Japan!
He studied here at Lexis Byron for 11 weeks, and was an instant hit with the other students – including his Brazilian classmates who were convinced that he was famous as he receives so much attention!
Starting in the Elementary class with very little English – Takuto sailed ahead, picking up language skills really quickly and being promoted to the Pre-Intermediate class.
We spoke to him about his time here at Lexis English | Byron Bay!!
“I wanted to go to Australia and had to choose either Noosa or Byron Bay – I think that Byron Bay is a bit more like the countryside, which I really like. It is more like where I live in Japan.
It’s a very good place – the people are more kind and the beach is beautiful – I can swim and surf here.
My favourite things about studying here have been surfing, staying at my friend Pau’s house and going to BBQ’s with other students.
Marie and Kathleen are very good teachers – I couldn’t speak at all and they taught me a lot of things. When I couldn’t understand they helped me.
I have made a lot of friends here. They taught me how to surf, and invited me to the beach. Last week I was free and wanted to do something, and Pau invited me to the beach. I surfed and swam – it was great!
My homestay family were so kind. At first they spoke so fast and I couldn’t understand! But they slowed down.”
Or maybe your English got so much better Takuto!
