Nagomi is from Japan and enjoys listening to English music. Her favourite song is “Don’t stop believing”, which was the first song she could sing in English. She also likes the sea and nature, which is why she wanted to study English in Australia. She hopes to be able to speak English well so that one day she can be an Interpreter.
Esther is from Spain and and likes being active, especially with swimming and pilates. She works in Marketing at a bank in Madrid, and needs to use English in her job almost daily. She decided to study English here because it has always been her dream to visit Australia. She has always thought the quality of life, beaches and weather in Australia make it a great country to live in. She hopes to see a koala and kangaroo before she leaves the country!
Maria is from Spain and lives in a small town in the Pyrenees Mountains. She works as a Ski Instructor in the Winter, and as a Waitress in a restaurant in the Summer. She looked at many places to visit in Australia before deciding to visit Byron Bay because it looks like paradise! She wants to improve her English at Lexis to improve her chances of finding work here.
Carla is from Spain and likes to surf and snowboard. She works as a Snowboarding Instructor, as a Waitress and at a Surf shop.
