This week, meet our student Urs from Switzerland!
Urs has already been here for almost 2 weeks, and will stay for 1 month in total. He is a happy and friendly guy and it is always nice to see him around school. I asked him some questions about his experiences in Byron so far…
Why did you come to Australia?
It was a choice between the USA and Australia. I wanted to go somewhere sunny with surf and I had already spent 5 months in California, so I chose Australia.
What is the best thing about Byron Bay?
The beaches are really cool. The lighthouse run. Also the lifestyle – people are healthy and like to be outside and eat local produce. The size of Byron Bay is good for a 1 month stay – it is small enough to see everything.
Is your English improving?
I think so! I am definitely getting better at understanding the Australian accent.
What would you say to someone who is considering studying at Lexis Byron Bay?
Of course he/she should do it! If you like small cities and beaches it’s one of the best choices you can make.
What are your plans after you finish studying at Lexis?
I have already been to Hong Kong and after Byron Bay I plan to travel south to Sydney and Melbourne. Then I will go to Bali, before I fly home to start my new job in December.
Thanks for sharing your experiences Urs, enjoy the rest of your time here 🙂
