Graduation – The Magnificent Six 31 July 2015


Vicente with the whole school

Today we said goodbye to six students.

Laura Tupinamba Molina Cunha. and Pedro Ernandez Ferreira Barbosa travelled from Brazil together to do our Teen Activity Program (TAP) with surfing.  In the two short weeks they were here they became know for their loveliness; leaving “have a nice day” messages for their homestay family and bringing Laura’s teacher, Claudia, a coffee after break.

Both students did really well in class and Paul, Pedro’s teacher, said he had made a remarkable improvement in just two weeks.

Pedro and Laura

We also said goodbye to another TAP student, Marcel Dreves from Germany, who was at Lexis for just one week. Although only 14, Marcel already has excellent English and is here for a week enjoying a holiday from his parents, while they enjoy Fiji.


While Marcel was here for such a short time Gabriel Young Ferraira was here for a very long time, at 21 weeks. His teacher, Kathleen, wasn’t at school today but she had written a note for his graduation which Marie read out. In it she commented that Gabriel arrived at the school a day late and that this set the tone for his entire six months but that, when he wasn’t sleepy from his many jobs, he  was a delight to have in class.


Next we said farewell to Vicente Plaza Rincorn who has studied at Lexis for the past five weeks. He has been doing an English and Surfing program, which he also did at Lexis Noosa school last year. His teacher said that her was both mature and funny and a delight to teach and he said that he would like to come back again.


Another massive surf fan leaving today was Tom Duezet from Reunion Island. Tom studied part-time with us for four weeks and went surfing pretty much every single afternoon. He loved the surf here and said he would definitely like to come back.

Kathleen at the Airport!

Our lovely Intermediate teacher, Kathleen, is taking a holiday for the month of August. Yesterday was her last day of teaching.

Today, Marie’s Elementary class did a dialogue build about going to the airport and used Kathleen’s impending holiday as a real-life example.


Meanwhile, Kathleen’s desk was so unnaturally tidy this morning (usually she likes to bring the kitchen sink to work) that it prompted Grant to ask, “have you fired Kathleen?”


Absolutely not. Kathleen, we are missing you already and look forward to your return in September. Have a great holiday.

TAP’s Residential Surf Campers go Exploring!


Today we went for a little adventure to see some of the surf spots around Byron and to learn a bit more about surfing. We even hiked to a secluded beach and to the light house and saw some dolphins and even whales!!!


The boys looking for whales and just seeing Mirko’s tongue!

At the Light house the boys got some Ice Cream and were on the hunt for whales and dolphins. It was a long hike with a lot of stairs and we even went to the most easterly part of all of Australia! We watched a few pods of dolphins playing and saw some whales breach and splash their tails!


S for Surfing!

At little Watego’s the boys posed for some pictures at a beautiful beach on a great sunny day!


Adventuring around Little Watego’s!


Break Time!

We stopped in at the local surf shop C-Skins and the manager Tom told the boys about surfing and surfboards! They even had some time to do a little shopping as well!


The boys learning about boards from Tom, manager of our local shop C-Skins!


Rodolphe and Yuki striking poses!

It was a great day and the boys had a lot of fun!

What’s on at the Weekend in Byron Bay

If you don’t have plans for the weekend and haven’t done a kayak excursion yet, then speak to Luiz or Giorgia at BWT about going with other Lexis students this Sunday morning. May to November is whale season so you may even be lucky enough to spot a pod and dolphins are practically guaranteed.

It looks like it’s going to be a gorgeous weekend; warm and sunny, with temperatures of around 22 degrees during the day and 13 degrees at night. Perfect for kayaking.

Residential Surf Campers Having some Fun!

IMG_1733We are in the middle of our first week here at our first TAP Residential Surf Camp. The boys have been enjoying surfing everyday with Mojo Surf. As well as hanging out in their rooms and playing ping pong in the student lounge.11787270_943035285759098_19280103_n

They have all been having a good time but get pretty worn out and tired from all the surfing! Today we will head off on an excursion to explore Byron Bay and learn more about surfing!


Marcel and Yuki Hanging out in their room!


Mirko Enjoying a Game of Ping Pong

Free August Activities 2-3pm


We’ve got some great activities lined up for the month of August. As well as all the old favourites like yoga, skateboarding, job club, coffee lounge, table tennis, soccer, volleyball, movie screening and poker we’ve got some new activities for you to try.

Firstly, on 14 August, you can learn all about a game that is extremely popular in Australia, but one that you have probably never played before – cricket. Cricket is a bit like rounders, softball or baseball. It’s easy for anyone to learn the basics and to play and our teacher Marie is a big fan of the game. It’s a great game for boys and girls to play together and a lot of fun.

The following week, we have a new workshop “Speak Like a Native Speaker” which focuses on real language and pronunciation – how to understand native speakers and make yourself understood. Also that week, we have the re-scheduled “The Sky at Night” activity. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the southern night sky through a powerful telescope and to learn more about the universe.

Finally, on the 28 August, we have a brand new activity – Aboriginal art and Boomerang painting. Come and learn about the oldest culture in the world and what some of the common art symbols mean and then have a go creating your own boomerang masterpiece.

You will need to sign up to some of these activities as there are either limited or minimum numbers so look out for the sign-up sheets in reception.

Have a great month!

Welcome to Our New Starters – 27 July 2015


New starters Mirko from Switzerland and Marcel from Germany (back) and Yuki from Japan (front) are all doing the Teenage Residential Surf Camp with Rodolphe (far right) who started last week.

This week, Lexis English welcomes 6 new starters: Mirko from Switzerland, Marcel from Germany, Doen from Korea, Kennida (Kenya) from Italy, and Junya and Yuki from Japan.

Doen, from Korea, is here for 5 weeks before she heads up to Lexis Noosa to study Cambridge FCE. She studies Fashion Design at university in Korea but is taking a year out to learn English and discover the Australian culture.

Junya, from Japan will study at Lexis English for twelve weeks. He has already been in Australia for nearly two months and has spent that time travelling in the North and working as a fruit-picker in Bundaberg. He told me that he wants to learn English so that he can travel the world.

Kenya, from Italy has been in Australia for nearly a year. She also has a job in Byron Bay at Chichette’s Italian Restaurant. She will study at Lexis for four weeks, initially, but may stay longer. She likes playing tennis and dancing.

Mirko, Marcel and Yuki are all here doing our Teen Surf Camp, where they study English in the morning and learn to surf in the afternoon.

Mirko, from Switzerland, is here for two weeks. He is already sporty, as he likes skating, skiing and mountain biking so he should find surfing no problem! In the future, he wants to be a school teacher.

Marcel, from Germany, is only at Lexis for one week. However, his English is already really good because he studies at an international school. He is a keen skateboarder and brought his long board to Byron Bay to help him get around.

Finally, Yuki arrived late last night from Japan. It’s his first time in Australia, first time surfing and first time at English school! Even though he understands little, so far he is always smiling and seems to be having a good time.

We really hope you all enjoy your stay at Lexis English. Welcome!

TAP Residential Surf Camp Begins!


Today is the first day of classes and surfing for our TAP Residential Surf Camp program! We have four boys all from different countries participating.

Rodolphe from France has been here for a week already taking classes but moved into the dorms with the other boys on Saturday night. He has been surfing since he was 8 on various holidays he has gone on with his family!

Mirko from Switzerland arrived around noon Saturday and was our first camper to arrive. He is very excited to learn how to surf because he is already a skilled skateboarder.

Marcel from Germany arrived midday Sunday. He has been speaking English for a few years now and is excited to learn to surf on his holiday. Marcel also is an avid skater.

Yuki is from Japan and arrived late in the evening Sunday. So today will be his first day!


Good Luck on your first day of Surfing and Classes!

Graduation – Goodbye and Good luck – 24 July 2015

Sadly, today is the last day for five of our lovely students: Aya, Douwe, Jun, Omar and Jacapo.


Aya Tomotaki, from Japan, has been at Lexis for three weeks in the Upper Intermediate class. She couldn’t be at graduation because she was going scuba-diving this afternoon. However, before she left, she said, “Everyone in Lexis Byron Bay are very friendly and I really enjoyed studying here. Thank you for helping us to improve our English with warm welcoming (sic)”. 


Also leaving from Upper Intermediate was Douwe Epema from The Netherlands. His teacher described him as a lovely student and he graduated with an A grade. He said that it had been “short but fun”.


The Intermediate class said goodbye to three students. First up was Junyung Shim from Korea. He has been studying at Lexis for 12 weeks. His teacher said that he didn’t always come to class but, when he did he asked extremely intelligent and thoughtful questions and was also very funny. She said that class would miss his sense of humour and cool hairstyle. June said thanks to Lexis for “good teachers, good friends and a good experience.”


Finally we said farewell to Jacapo Saccocci from Italy and Omar Cisse Ochoa from Spain. They have both been at Lexis on for four weeks and have really made the most of their time with trips and excursions. Their teacher Kathleen said that at first she thought Jacopo’s throat had been cut because he never spoke, but, that as he settled into class, he started talking all the time and now even makes jokes about his “poor teacher”. Jacopo thanked his teachers, his friends and his homestay family.

Omar told us that at first he had been scared because everything was so new and he didn’t know anybody or anything but that he had had a great time, made some good friends and loved the experience.

Safe travels to all of you and don’t forget to come back and see us sometime.

A Top Teen Trio


Vicente, Omar and Jacapo in the Gold Coast with other Lexis students: Alvaro, Raphael, Livia, Marco, Simone and Jose.

Vicente, Omar and Jacopo met when they started at Lexis on the same day nearly four weeks ago. From that time on, they have been inseparable and have certainly made the most of their time in Australia by joining our surfing program (Vicente) visiting the Gold Coast and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (all of them), going scuba diving (all of them) and visiting Sydney (Omar) as well as taking part in many school activities.

Today, I asked them a few questions about what they have enjoyed most about their holidays.


Vicente joins in the Skateboarding workshop on his first day at Lexis

 Vicente Plaza Rincorn ( 16 – Spain)

“Last year, I was in Lexis Noosa and so this year I decided to try another Lexis school. I decided on Byron because in pictures it looks amazing and because of the surfing too. My surfing has really improved during my time here. We surfed at a number of different beaches including Main Beach and Lennox Head. For me, Main Beach had the best waves. I liked my classes because they are different from studying in Spain, where you are taught in Spanish. There’s a lot more speaking and listening practice, which I enjoy more than grammar. On my first day in homestay I felt unsure because I didn’t know anyone or anything, but soon I  discovered that they were nice, friendly people who would help me with anything. The best things about coming to Byron Bay, for me, were the scuba diving, which I really enjoyed and the friends that I’ve made.”


Omar enjoying a Friday game of soccer (pictured with Miguel from Brazil)

Omar Cisse Ochoa  (17 – Spain)

“I wanted to come to Byron Bay because I’d heard it was small and relaxed and difficult to get lost. I liked my classes because normally studying English is boring for me but this was better. My homestay family were really lovely and had a very playful and friendly young son called Jack.I enjoyed all my excursions, even though Sydney was very short. My only regret is that the nightclubs looked so good but we were too young to get into them.”


Jacapo took second place in the Lexis Byron Bay fiercely fought Ping Pong Tournament

Jacapo Saccocci (16 – Italy)

“I chose Byron Bay because it was small and had beautiful beaches. I wasn’t disappointed. At Lexis, I had a good teacher and my homestay family were great and helped me whenever I had any problems or questions. I enjoyed all activities but, for me, scuba-diving was the best thing. It was a really good experience and one that I couldn’t have in my country.”


Cambridge Congratulations!

Both the CAE and FCE results for the June exams are now out and Lexis Byron Bay students did very well. As usual there were some excellent results (including a 210 score in the writing exam) and some sad near misses. Overall,  everyone was much improved on their pre-tests and, here at Lexis English, we are very proud of you. Well done!

Aussie Food Workshop


DK, Thiago, Hong, Livia and Tommy cover the lamingtons in chocolate and coconut

Today Claudia gave Lexis students an opportunity to make and taste some traditional Aussie food. On the menu were:

  • Lamingtons
  • Avocado and Vegemite Sandwiches
  • Tim Tam Slams

The lamingtons, of course, were very popular; filled with strawberry jam and covered in chocolate and coconut, but I couldn’t find anyone who enjoyed the vegemite. Korean student June tried to pretend he could eat it by spreading the sandwich with the lamington coating but nobody was fooled.


Suzuka wasn’t keen on the Vegemite


Nor was Fumika!

At first, the new arrivals Rodolphe from France, Yuta from Japan, Victor from Belgium and Pedro and Laura from Brazil were happy just to watch as Flavio demonstrated some moves on the ramp. Soon, however, they were having a go themselves and doing very well indeed.

Victor is from Belgium and, last year went to a surf camp in the USA. Now he wants to try an Australian English and Surf program. He’s still at school but hopes to study Chemistry when he finishes.

Pedro and Laura are here from Brazil and are both excited about learning surfing for the first time and seeing all the animals and culture Australia has to offer! In the future, Pedro is thinking about training to be a vet while Laura has her heart set on studying International Relations in Melbourne.

Yuta is from Japan and will be with us for 4 weeks to improve his English. He’s on a Working Holiday Visa so will then be looking for a job and living in Australia for the rest of the year!

Elisabeth is from Germany  and moved here with her husband to be close to her daughter and grandchildren. Even though her English is excellent she sometimes feels shy around native speakers so wants to improve her English ability!

Welcome to our five new students! 6 July 2015

Today, we warmly welcome five new students: Tom from Reunion Island, Aya from Japan, Yuan Hung (Hong) from Taiwan and Maria and Jose from Spain.


Aya, Maria, Tom, Yaun Hung (Hong) and Jose.

Tom is a very experienced surfer and he chose to come to Byron Bay because his friends came last year and highly recommended it. He is still at school, but next year will study Sport at university in France.

Aya, from Japan, actually lives in Cambodia, where she is studying the Cambodian language to help in her work as a trainee diplomat and interpreter. This has been her dream job since she visited Cambodia some years ago and realised that people’s perception of the country and the reality are really different. She is at Lexis for three weeks to “remember” her English

Jose is also here for work purposes. His company in Spain has recently been taken over by Vodafone and now he needs English for his job in IT. He chose Byron Bay because he enjoys sports and wants to do lots of surfing.

Maria, who already speaks excellent English is here during her university holidays. She studies Biotechnology in Madrid, which she loves. Her boyfriend is also in Australia, studying English in  the Gold Coast and after they have finished at school, they plan to go to Thailand for an amazing holiday.

Finally, Hong will study at Lexis for 13 weeks and stay in Australia for a total of 10 months before going to Japan for a year (both on Working Holiday Visas). He told me that there are excellent job opportunities in Taiwan for people who can speak Japanese, especially in his trade (the car manufacturing industry). He also said that travelling the world is his dreams so it’s really important for him to be able to understand English spoken in any accent.

Welcome to Lexis English!

Friday Footy!

A number of Lexis students, plus Marie, braved the chilly winter weather this afternoon for a great game of footy (better known as soccer to Australians/Americans). The teams were uneven at first so Marie took on the role of goalie, but luckily, shortly after starting, Miguel came along and saved the day.

This left Marie free to take the great action shots below. When the game was over, everyone enjoyed a bottle of beer and a nice chat in the garden.

New Travel Desk


Come down to the student lounge and check out the revitalised Backpacker World Travel help desk.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtime you can find  either Luiz or Gioggia here to help with any and all of your travel, transport and trip requirements.

Fancy scuba-diving, kayaking or skydiving? Then Byron is the place to do it and Luiz and Gioggia can organise your trip for you.

If you need to book an airport  transfer or a hire car they can help you with that too.

But most of all Gioggia and Luiz are great to talk to if you are not sure what to do or where to go after Lexis. They know all the best trips up the east coast and all over Australia and can also help you plan any stops in Asia on the way home too.

Even if you don’t have any travels to plan, stop by and have a chat. Gioggia is from Italy and Luiz from Brazil so they know just how it feels to come to be a stranger in a strange land.

Graduation 3 July 2015

This week Lexis English Byron Bay is sad to say goodbye to three lovely students: Aline and Indira from Brazil and Sangwoo from Korea.10530731_687335414668306_4013032411261623504_n

Indira, pictured far right, has been at Lexis a total of 48 weeks. When she started she was a beginner and she has made amazing progress during her time in Byron Bay. She says thank you to all her teachers and staff and hopes to see us around, as she is staying in BB for a little while longer.

Aline, who asked me not to take her picture because she was shy, also studied at Lexis English for a long time. She originally enrolled for 12 weeks but then extended that to 24. When she started she was just Pre-Intermediate, but she leaves with a Grade B Upper Intermediate certificate.

Sangwoo (below) was at Lexis for just eight weeks. He didn’t come to school as often as he should have but he said that “all the teachers were super kind and they know how to teach students.”

IMG_6858      Goodbye and good luck to all three of you. We’ve enjoyed having you here.

Meet The Staff… Gioggia & Luiz from BWT

Here at Lexis Byron we would like to extend a very warm welcome to Gioggia and Luiz from Backpacker World Travel. We asked them a little about themselves and here are their answers! Welcome welcome welcome Gioggia and Luiz =D

Meet Gioggia!


How long have you been in Australia, in Byron and at BWT?
“I’ve been in Australia for nearly 2 years. I lived in the beautiful Sydney most of the time, and I moved to Byron Bay just 2 months ago, when I started to work for Backpackers World Travel.”

What brought you to Australia? Where is your favourite place?
“I came to Australia when I finished university, just for travelling…and then I got stuck for 2 years! I have been travelling the East Coast, Melbourne, and Tasmania. My favourite place is the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns, I love scuba diving and snorkeling and that’s the best place to do it!”

Where have you travelled? Where would you like to travel?
“I Love travelling, that’s why I love my job so much 🙂 I traveled Europe quite a lot, I have been to Mexico twice and North Africa. Next on my bucket list are Asia and South America! The best thing I have ever done in my life is definitely sky dive in Australia…Everybody should try it:)”

What’s the one trip you would recommend in Byron? Where’s the best place to go out?
“The tour I liked the most in Byron bay is Kayaking with dolphins (after skydiving). The best place to eat in Byron is DIP, I love having breakfast there and the coffee is amazing!”

Tell us more about yourself…
“I am Italian, really active and energetic. I love extreme activities, like rafting and bungy jumping. I love surfing (even if I am still a beginner) boxing, and reading. I studied foreign languages and literature, English and French,  and I have a masters degree in Event Management. In the future I see my self managing a travel agency in Europe.”

Meet Luiz!


How long have you been in Australia?
“I have been living in Australia for 2 years and 11 months.”

How long in Byron?
“I have been living here for one month, but I have been coming here every now and then when I have a free time since I came to Australia.”

How long have you been at BWT?
“I am quite new at BWT, I started 3 weeks ago.”

What brought you to Australia?
“That is a hard one, I would say the surf was the main reason once that I’ve been surfing since I was 10 but also the people and the temperature which is similar to where I am from.”

Where have you been here?
“I have been to Sydney, Fraser, Whitsundays Islands, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.”

Where is your favorite place?
“Gold Coast.”

What about the world?

Where have you travelled?
“I have been to the United States of America, Spain (Madrid), Canary Islands (Tenerife) Indonesia (Bali, Mentawaii Islands)”

Where would you like to travel?
“Maldives, Tahiti and Hawaii.”

What’s the one experience everyone should have in their lives?
“Surfing, to be more precise to get a “deep barrel”.”

What’s the one trip you would recommend in Byron?
“East Coast trip.”

Where’s the best place to go out?
“Here in Byron, I would choose the Tree House, cause it has good food (pizzas), amazing drinks and the desserts are delicious and the atmosphere is really nice. “
