Student Night at Aquarius

photo 4 Last Friday we had our student night with a pretty big turn out. We had about half of our students show up and hang out. All the students enjoyed a few drinks and some live music. There was even a free BBQ! Everyone had fun playing ping pong, Xbox, and just hanging outwith each other. It was a really awesome time!photo 1 photo 2photo 6  photo 5  photo 3

Which juice is tastier?

20150326_100351On Thursday morning Kathleen’s Pre-Intermediate class headed to the Farmer’s Market to practise their comparatives and superlatives.

Before they set off they reviewed different adjectives to describe food and drink e.g. healthy, bland, and also their comparative and superlative forms e.g. blander and blandest.


Then, at the market, the had to find three types of food they could taste and describe them, as well as completing a worksheet.


And that’s not all. When they returned to school they also completed a writing activity based on the excursion.

What a great lesson!

Graduation 27.3.15

Today at graduation we say goodbye to 5 students!

photo 3Yannick – Switzerland – 12 Weeks

Yannick’s teacher said he started with basically no English at all but worked so hard and and studied so constantly that he ended his time here at the top of the Elementary class. He said thank you so much to his teachers. He is now going to travel for a month in Australia and then go to California.

photo 5Miryu – Japan – 12 Weeks

Miryu was a lovely student, always late, but a go-for-it personality and very enthusiastic. He said thank you for improving, not only his speaking, but his reading and writing as well. He will be heading to Noosa for 2 months to work in a restaurant.

His teacher said he is a lovely and funny man who worked very hard to move up from his Elementary class into Pre-intermediate. Daichi said “thank you, my English has improved and I would like to continue to study English in Japan.”

photo 2Maurizio – Italy – 4 Weeks

Maurizio found it really difficult to understand and speak any English when he first arrived. Now, after four weeks with us, he has the ability to hold conversations. He thanked everyone here at Byron Lexis and his fellow students.

photo 1Audrey – Belgium – 1 Week

Audrey was here for only one week but is a very impressive student. She learned all of her English here in Australia while travelling and was put into our upper-intermediate class.

Congratulations Everyone!
