Lexis Byron Bay welcomes 9 new starters

FullSizeRender

Back Row Left to Right: Cesare, Lucas, Luciana, Chloe, Simona & Mariko Front Row Left to Right: Loan, Sofie & Julie

This week we welcome nine new starters to Lexis Byron Bay: Cesare and Luciana from Italy, Lucas from Belgium, Chloe from Korea, Mariko from Japan, Simona, Loan and Julie from Switzerland and Sofie from Sweden.

Cesare has already been in Australia for three weeks. He was travelling but after reaching Byron Bay decided to stay for a while. In Italy, he’s an Interior Design student and needs a good level of English to be able to find work in this field.

Luciana lives in the centre of Rome and works with her parents. All her family, her parents, her brother and her are pharmacists. She wants to improve her English to be able to better help tourists who come into the shop.

Lucas has just finished school in Belgium and will now study English for a total of 36 weeks (18 in Byron Bay and 18 at Lexis Perth). He wants to study Business in Brussels and the course is taught in English so he needs to become fluent. He told me he was a beginner but actually already tested as a strong Intermediate student, so I’m sure he’ll have not problems reaching his goal.

Chloe and Julie are both here to study on the First Certificate Preparation course, which starts next week. Simona, came to Australia with her boyfriend last year and loved it so much she decided to come back. Loan is a ski instructor and chose Byron Bay because of the surf and because it’s a small town. Mariko is here on a working holiday visa and will be looking for a job when her course finishes and, finally, Sofie will study on our full-time IELTS course in September because she needs get an IELTS 6 so she can do six months of her Economics degree in New Zealand.

A big warm welcome to all of you. We hope you have a fabulous time at Lexis and in Byron Bay.

Boomerang Painting

IMG_20150828_151218

The students hold up their finished boomerangs (except Aurelie who had to leave early so Hung is holding hers)

Yesterday afternoon a group of students gathered in the student lounge to learn about Aboriginal art and the origin of boomerangs. Then each student had the opportunity to design and paint their own boomerang, which they they got to keep.

IMG_20150828_143001 IMG_20150828_143056 IMG_20150828_143242 IMG_20150828_143344 IMG_20150828_143454 IMG_20150828_143524

It was a really fun activity and the finished boomerangs were little works of art.

Graduation 28 August 2015

Today we say goodbye to two Lexis | Byron Bay students, Thiago and Maria.

Thiago – perfectly suited to Byron Bay

Thiago Correa Da Costa from Brazil has been here for sixteen weeks. He started in Elementary and finishes with an Intermediate Grade B certificate. His teacher said that the was the most relaxed student she’d ever met and that he didn’t even seem to understand what the word “angry” meant. Thiago said that it was great to meet everyone, that he’d had fantastic time here and that he’s still in BB for another six months so he’s sure he’ll see us around.

IMG_20150827_125749

Maria De La Sal Gonzalez from Spain actually graduated yesterday because she had to leave BB last night. Her teacher, Julia, described her as a lovely and happy student and told us that Maria said that she had had a great time at Lexis and enjoyed learning about other cultures.

We wish both of you all the best in the future.

SEPTEMBER ACTIVITIES

Untitled

We have over 50 new students starting over the next two weeks and a great activity calendar to tempt them with.

There’s a great range, each week, of sporting and creative activities with skateboarding, yoga, soccer, cricket, table tennis and volleyball in the former and Korean cooking, boomerang painting, sandcastle building and a Masterchef cook-off in the latter.

We also bring Phil back for another opportunity to view the night sky through a powerful telescope. (Let’s hope there are no clouds this month) And, of course, we continue to run the fortnightly Coffee Lounge so you can mix with students from other classes, and the fortnightly Job Club for those who need help finding and applying for jobs.

We will also shortly be welcoming a new member of staff dedicated to activities and student services. Watch this space for more news soon.
