Meet our new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week –
Kim, Yuki, Thomas, Elodie, Samonwan, Elisabeth and Mantana.
Kim is from Korea. He used to ski for about 5 or 6 years, but had to quit after an injury to his cruciate ligament. He then became a lifeguard and worked at an indoor swimming pool. Now Kim is learning English so he can pursue his dream job of joining the cabin crew for an airline.
Yuki is from Japan and enjoys playing basketball, driving his car, watching baseball and running. He has studied Chinese and teaches Japanese to foreign students in his country. Yuki wants to learn English so he can work and travel all around the world.
Thomas is from France and loves to surf – it is his passion! He also enjoys playing guitar and singing, taking care of his garden and looking after animals. Thomas is studying English so he can one day return to France and study wildlife protection. He chose to study in Australia because of the good weather, people and of course the surf!
Elodie is from Switzerland and has been travelling in Australia since September last year. She is joining the Cambridge class at Lexis English and is hoping to work in Byron Bay.
Samonwan is from Thailand and is just fourteen years old. She is one of nine in her family and likes reading cartoon books. She is also interested in basketball but doesn’t know how to play. Samonwan thinks she would like to be a doctor in the future.
Elisabeth is from France and lives in a little town one hour from Paris. She enjoys watching movies, shopping, listening to music and chilling out. She has worked in a toy shop for children for the past three years and is now studying English so she can speak with the local people on her travels.
Mantana is from Thailand and lives in the province of Pichit. She is sixteen years old and is one of nine in her family. She likes to read and is very interested in English. Mantana wants to be an English teacher and hopes to complete her university studies in Australia.
