Ulysse and Greg talk about their time in Byron Bay!


16 year old French students Ulysse and Greg have come to the end of their five week stay in Byron Bay – where they studied English, surfed and explored our stunning coastal town.

Here are the boys pulling some dashing faces on their surf lesson 🙂

We spoke to them about their time here at Lexis English | Byron Bay!




I really like my homestay. They cook very well and their child Jack, who is 7, is a very nice boy. They are very welcoming. They also had a Japanese student staying with them and he was cool. There is always a friendly atmosphere at dinner!


If I had to describe Byron Bay to another student, I would say that in the winter the weather is very good, and it is a very good spot to surf – there are great waves. The people are very friendly, especially at Lexis!

I enjoyed my lessons – Paul is a very good teacher. It is my second time in Australia – I also studied at Lexis Noosa – Lexis is a good school.


My surfing definitely progressed while I was here – I got better at surfing the face of the wave. I also bought a $400 wetsuit! The surf instructors are really good.

Thanks Greg! We won’t tell your Dad about the $400 wetsuit….


Yesterday I went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, on the Gold Coast – I saw so many crocodiles and got to hold a koala!photo_2441942_20140807

My homestay was really good – Georgia, my homestay Mum, was such a nice, helpful and funny person. The food was great, too. 

I also really liked my teachers – when I first arrived  I found it difficult to understand, but whenever you don’t understand, they stop and explain. Paul is a very good teacher. The English Only policy is good too, as it makes me speak English and speak to other students.

My surfing has improved – I’ve been surfing on short boards rather than the foam boards that you use when you first start learning. Mojo are a really good surf school!

Thanks Ulysse and Greg! We hope that you come back to visit us, as well as the koalas, the hippies and the waves; some day!
