IMG_6926

Today we did beer tasting with some travel info from Backpacker World Travel. The beers we tasted were Little Creatures Pale Ale, Stone and Wood Lager, and 4Pines Kolsch.

The students really enjoyed talking about the beer and comparing them to determine the best one!

Cooking up a Storm in our English and Cooking Option

Today, the students in the English and Cooking option are making risotto from a recipe supplied by Swiss Italian student Simone.

Simone, Marco and Satoru stir the rice

The students have been working hard this week to share their favourite recipes – learning all the recipe specific language along the way. And today, the fun part happens when they cook up the recipe of their choice. The finished results look amazing.

Our Upper Intermediate class saying Good Bye to Camila!

Today at Lexis Byron Bay we say goodbye to a very lovely student who has been with us for 6 months. We caught up with Camila and asked her a few questions.

What are your plans now that you are finished here at Lexis?

I’m going to stay in Byron Bay and work and hang out and then I am actually coming back to Lexis to do a Cambridge course in a few months.

How did you like the last 6 months at school?

It was perfect. I couldn’t speak one word at first and now I can hold conversations.

What was your favourite part?

Meeting all of the other students from around the world and making friends. Also learning about all of the other cultures from those other people.

Camila at Orientation her first day!

What advice would you give to incoming students?

Try to just speak English. Go outside the school and learn about real Australian Culture. Try the food and see places and meet the people. Travel as much as possible.

We are all very sad to see Camila leave but luckily she will be coming back to improve her English even more and we are all looking forward to her return!
