Coffee Club! May 31

This afternoon we enjoyed our coffee and TimTams in a truly Australian style – using the TimTams as straws to drink our coffee through!

To try this at home (which I highly recommend), bite each end off your TimTam then submerge one end into the coffee (or tea or hot chocolate…any hot drink!) and suck through the other end. Enjoy the coffee and the yummy, gooey taste of a melting TimTam! Just make sure to eat the TimTam before it melts completely and falls in your drink!

We also had some great conversation over an awesome round of Lexis Jenga. 🙂

Table Tennis Tournament! May 27

This afternoon we had a Table Tennis Tournament at Lexis Byron Bay!

Everyone enjoyed the friendly competition and the games were very close! Donovan was the winner in the end – defending his title from the last tournament – and the beer was happily shared between all the competitors. 🙂

Noriko is from Japan and has been a positive student at Lexis Byron Bay. She has a really good level of English and has gained confidence in her speaking over the past two months. She is a hard working student and a smiley, happy member of the class. All the best  for the future, Noriko!

Floriant is from Switzerland and had a good attitude and participation in class. He has a high level of speaking and grammar, which has improved during his time at Lexis. Floriant is celebrating his graduation with a trip up the coast, to Noosa and Cairns. Enjoy exploring more of Australia, Floriant!

We wish you both all the best for your future travels and hope you will continue using and improving your English. 🙂
