Graduation! December 11

Today we say goodbye to 8 students… Kevin, Yann, Melody, Gwladys, Rahel, Jasmin, Sofie and Pedro (although Pedro wasn’t here at graduation to be photographed).

Kevin Joerg from Switzerland has been at Lexis for 6 weeks and during that time he has worked hard and enjoyed the Byron Bay lifestyle, especially the surf! Kevin says he has had an amazing time here and he made a lovely speech (you can watch it again on our Lexis English Byron Bay Facebook page!)

Finally, Pedro Navarro Santoro from Spain has been at Lexis for the last 12 weeks and he graduates from the IELTS class at Advanced level. His teacher Anji describes him as a very intelligent student and says it has been absolutely lovely teaching him. He plans to take his IELTS exam soon and will stay a little while longer in Australia to work and travel before he returns to Spain.

Goodbye and good luck to you all! 🙂
