Graduation 30.1.15

Today we had quite a few students graduating. We had a  total of 11 students graduating.

A few of them sadly missed the Graduation process and left us earlier this week. Those students included Anna from Brazil,Matheus from Brazil, Sae from Japan, and Adriana from Brazil.

First to graduate to was a group of three from Josie’s class. Jeannine, Sullivan and Vitus. Their teacher said they were a pleasure to have in class and part of such a fun group of students. And all got great marks. During their farewell they said thank you to all their friends and classmates and teachers. They will all continue on their travels and adventures around Australia and other places.

photo 5Norie from Japan was next to graduate. Her teacher said that she had perfect grammar and a very confident speaker. Norie said she enjoyed her time here and that she hopes to see everyone again soon!

photo 2Denise was already a pretty good English speaker but was able to get even better in her short three weeks here with us. She is leaving the school and heading to a week long surf camp!

photo 4Next was Michael or as many of you know him as Siggy. His teacher said he was a pleasure to have in class and a fun person. Siggy said he enjoyed his time here in Byron and is going to start travelling and is really looking forward to it.

photo 3Last but not least we have Mario from Switzerland. His teacher said he was a brilliant student and very hard working. He would always ask questions and help other students. Mario said he had a good time in Byron and there were great teachers. Mario is now going to start travelling.

Good luck to all our graduating students with their travels and adventures!

We now will be holding our student nights at Aquarius’ Bar and Grill. Join Grant between 5PM-7PM Fridays every fortnight. The first 15 to 25 students could earn themselves a free drink. Students will also receive a special guest wristband to earn them discounts on drinks for the rest of the night.

If you thought that was all then you are wrong! Students will also receive a voucher for a free BBQ meal with the purchase of any drink! The BBQ will start at 6:30PM instead of 7PM special for the students and then be open until 8PM. Make sure to find Grant and say “hello” and “how ya going?” to get set up with your BBQ Voucher, possible free drink and discount wristband!

Still not finished! There will also be live music playing through the night so it’s going to be a good time far past 7PM. So feel free to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere and music all night!

Meet the Staff – Claudia

Claudia is one of our longest standing and most popular teachers and also regularly works as Acting Director of Studies/Campus Manager while Lisa is away. She has been living in Australia for 11 years and came to us from Germany. Meet CLAUDIA everyone!

photo 1Why did you choose teaching?

I’ve always been interested in languages. When I was younger I spent a year in Los Angeles at High School, lived in Europe and traveled a lot. Teaching to me seemed to be the perfect choice to combine my interest in languages, meeting new people, getting to know different cultures and having a job where I can actually make a difference in people’s lives.

What is Byron’s best kept secret?

There are too many to mention them all! But make sure not to forget to visit all the awesome little towns in the Byron Shire. Especially Mullumbimby! And watch the sunset from the lighthouse! It’s a simply stunning experience that you will never forget again!

What is your favorite part about teaching?

Meeting all these awesome people from all over the world! I love travelling, speak four languages myself and having lots of interesting conversations with my students just makes teaching fun!

What is your dream holiday?

Travelling around the world with my family! Visiting lots of different countries, trying local food, experiencing different cultures and preferably having all the time and money in the world to do this. J I love showing the world to my children and try to make sure we travel as much as possible!

 What is your favorite part about Byron Bay?

 Well, I guess there is so much I love about Byron that I cannot put it down to one thing. I’d say maybe the atmosphere if I have to pick one thing. People are easy-going, relaxed, friendly and conscious. I love that people have an awareness of the world around them and live life to the fullest!

What is your top tip for learning English?

Be confident, have a positive attitude, socialize with and talk to locals. Immersing yourself in the language is the best way to even start dreaming in English soon!!

Poker Tournament!


Tuesday we had a Poker tournament where we played some Texas Hold ‘Em. Ten students joined it and battled it out to be the victor and win the prize. After quite a few hands, and a few students going all in, the table kept getting smaller and smaller. We even saw a student be one card away from a royal flush and instead had a straight flush missing the ace.

image_2photo 2

The final two were Jeremy and Andre. Jeremy was looking to win his second prize of the month since he had already won the ping pong tournament earlier on this month. But Andre was equally keen to win and ended up becoming our poker champion! It was a great tournament and congratulations Andre!!!  photo 3

photo 2Guilherme Carvalho e Sousa – Comes to Byron from Brazil and has been with us for two weeks but now is heading back home to Brazil. His teacher said that he is a very high achiever and very talkative. Guilherme even mentioned he might be returning to us next January. Good Luck and safe travels home.

photo 11

Markus Angehrn– Is from Switzerland and has been with us for six weeks now. He will be volunteering on an organic farm for four weeks before heading home. His teacher said he was quiet and when he did speak up he was always correct. Markus said that Kathleen always had interesting lessons and was always so happy!

photo 1Katharina Royer– Also come to us from Switzerland and has been here with us for three weeks as well. Nextshe plans to head to Sydney but then to Fiji and New Zealand.

Katharina said her teachers were wonderful and that she learned so much here in such a short time and was very excited about that.

photo1 3

Florian Riguad– Is from New Caledonia and was also with us for only three weeks. Florian started out quiet and a bit shy but as time went on he came out of his shell. His teacher said he did a wonderful dance to Bob Marley. Florian said good luck to every one and that Byron Bay has been fun and interesting.

Alicia Dvernay– Another one of our students from Switzerland and was also with us for three weeks. She is now leaving to start travelling.

Alicia said thank you to every one and especially her teacher Marie who was very passionate and helpful.

photo 12Nao Nishida– Came to Byron from Japan and was with us for two weeks and is now heading to Noosa to continue his studies. He started quite shy and quiet and started to open up and become more talkative after the two weeks. He was also an excellent student.

Yesterday, after our students had finished their lessons, the teachers had one. The lovely Julia delivered a very informative PD (Professional Development) session on two of the Cambridge exams: Cambridge First (FCE) and Cambridge Advanced (CAE).

photo 1

Everyone learned a lot about the difference between doing an exam course and General English and also about the recent changes to both exams. My favourite moment was when no one could work out the missing work in this open cloze sentence:

“The truth is nobody really knows how language first began. Did we all start talking at around the same time ______________ of the manner in which our brains had begun to develop?

Answers on a postcard…

Slacklining Fun in the Garden

Today Students gathered to practice the sport of Slacklining. Every one took a go as the Slackline Expert Joshee taught and assisted them across the line. By the end of the hour quite a few of our students were making it all the way across. A few students were even trying spins and walking backwards and even sitting and walking two at a time. It was a whole lot of fun and the students really enjoyed themselves. Students were really looking forward to the next time they could try this sport.

After Cricket on the Beach the students met up at the Beach Hotel to enjoy some fun, photo 3conversations, and some drinks.Many students showed up, mingled and had a lot of fun with each other.

FCE Success Story – Atsushi

photo (22)

Last week were were all delighted to hear that our long term student Atsushi Kanazawa passed his FCE examination with a Grade C.

Atsushi (Ash) originally started at Lexis Byron Bay in July. A rugby coach in Japan, he came to Byron Bay on the recommendation of an Australian friend, who is a member of the Lennox Head Rugby Union Club. Byron Bay suits Ash perfectly as he’s a keen surfer and hits the waves 3 or 4 time a week “because it’s perfect here.”

However, although he enjoys his leisure time, Ash’s main reason for coming to Byron Bay was to improve his English for his job. This is why he chose FCE; because he knew he would have to work hard, stay motivated throughout and do lots of homework in order to pass. Earlier today, he told me that he learnt so many new words every day that his vocabulary has really improved and also that his teacher Paul was kind, helpful and very very funny!

Ash told me that he been preparing himself for the worst because he had been nervous on exam day and also found the listening very hard. So last week when he got the result, he was thrilled. Finally, he said ” I wouldn’t have made it without Paul’s help.”

Well done Ash and all his classmates in FCE Sept-Dec 2014.

Graduation Day with our Solo Graduate.

Graduation Day kicked off today with our solo graduate.

Etienne Simon Vogler

photo 1 Eti from Switzerland graduated today after ten weeks with us here in Byron Bay. He is a very nice guy and a ping pong enthusiast.

photo 2  His teacher said it was lovely to have him in class and he had great marks. Eti said thank you to every one for all the wonderful time here and his teachers for helping him learn. He also said that he now plans to start his travels around Australia, Asia, and possibly America for the next year or so.

Congratulations ETI!

New Staff Member – Grant

Last week there was a new staff member who started up at reception as the Student Services and Activities Support Officer. So it’s about time I introduce myself.

My name is Grant and I’m from California. I’ve been working with students in many different positions. For example coaching water polo or swimming, running and creating student activities though out my studies at university and even co-teaching a few classes while at university as well.


I’ve been in Australia for about 5 months now. So far I’ve only seen from Sydney to the Gold Coast, so I still have quite a bit of Australia to see.


20310_10151767933020715_322510380_nA few things about me, I love to surf and skate and love water sports like Swimming and Water Polo. A couple funny things about me is I’m a huge Spider man and Ninja Turtles fan. So I own way too many things from each.

67684_10151767931295715_1696209149_nI’m up at reception most of the day or running the activities. But make sure to say hello and come up for a chat or say hey if you see me around town. I’m more than happy to help you with any questions you may have and look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you.

Graduation Day!!!

Today we said farewell to 3 of our students who graduated this week. One from Korea and two from Japan.

photo 3

photo 5First to graduate today was Ayaka Ichishima from Japan who was in the Intermediate class. Her teacher said she was a pleasure to have in class and speaks pretty well. Ayaka thanked everyone for her time here and all the help speaking English.

photo 1Changgon Mun from Korea was next up at Graduatuion. Also from the Intermediate classclass. His teacher said he was so funny and humorous and great to have around. Changgon kept it fairly short with a simple “Thank You, Good Bye!”

photo 2Last but not least Shizuya Morishita from Japan graduated from the Pre-Intermediate class. His teacher commented on how great of a speaker he is and how he got very good marks. Shizuya said a very kind and touching speech and gave everyone a nice good bye.

 Congratulations to all of you and hopefully you continue to use and practice your awesome English skills. photo 4
