Coffee Lounge! November 28

Today at Coffee Lounge we had a lovely game of Aussie Heads in the morning and tested our brain power with Riddles in the afternoon!

At the morning session, everyone asked excellent questions and discovered the name on their card very quickly!

Othman even figured out Boomerang with little difficulty, though this is his favourite Coffee Lounge game and he has played it a few times during his studies at Lexis Byron Bay!

In the afternoon, Myuri, Mayumi and Natsumi were enthralled with the riddles and worked their brains hard to figure them out – successfully almost every time too! Tito resorted to google to find the answers but enjoyed the TimTams all the same 🙂

End of Cambridge BBQ! November 25

After three months of studying very hard, the Cambridge course has come to an end! It feels like only yesterday we were welcoming the Cambridge students on their first day. Many friends have been made and lots of English learnt over the past three months and we will be sad to say goodbye to this group.

In addition to the Cambridge students leaving, we have 16 students finishing up their General English courses today too. This gave us all the more reason to come together for an Aussie BBQ celebration and what a lovely day it was. 🙂

Coffee Lounge! November 22

Today we had two lovely sessions of Coffee Lounge enjoying the coffee and conversation and, of course, the TimTams!

img_1086

In the morning we played a game where a student would describe an object, animal or place and the others would try to guess what it was. This helped the students practice their English both in speaking and listening, as well as exposing them to new words and using the language in a different way than usual.

In the afternoon we had a few different games going, after first trying to master drinking coffee through TimTams. The students love trying this very Australian way of drinking coffee, with some even making it a part of their morning ritual!

img_1091

After going through all the TimTams (so quickly!) we got into some games. We had riddles and brainteasers to keep our minds working hard for the hour to not only work out the answer, but to work it out in English!
Some examples of the riddles include:
1. What has a thumb and finger but is not alive?
2. What do you buy but not use, when you use it you don’t know it, and you only use it once?
3. What belongs to you but is used more by others?

Answers to the riddles are:
1. A glove.
2. A coffin.
3. Your name.

New Starters! November 21

Welcome to the four new students joining us at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_1082

Laura is from Colombia but has spent the past six years living in Germany. She is the youngest of her family and her parents, older brother and older sister all still live in Colombia. She loves sports, such as playing volleyball or watching soccer, and enjoys dancing to latin music including the salsa, merenge and bachata. She has just completed her undergraduate studies in Germany, in International Business with Event Management. She plans to start her Masters degree next year in Sport Event and Marketing Management in Berlin. She decided to study in Australia to improve her English to help her future studies and career. She also has a keen interest in other cultures and has always wanted to visit Australia to see the beautiful nature and beaches.

Marta is from Spain and lives on the island of Mallorca with her parents. She is an only child but has a lot of cousins in her extended family. Last year she completed her studies to become a teacher, with her final training taking place in Morocco. This was a life-changing experience for her and has inspired her to travel around the world helping children without easy access to education. She is planning to spend nine months in Australia and hopes to improve her English while meeting lots of people from all over the world and enjoying the beautiful environment of the country.

Kazuma is from Japan and is one of six in his family. He enjoys playing and watching sports, especially baseball, but is a bit disappointed that this is not played much in Australia! Instead, he is looking forward to learning how to surf and possibly making this his new favourite hobby. He decided to study at Lexis Byron Bay to improve his English because he wants to work as a nurse in Australia. For this he plans to study hard so that he can achieve a high score on the IELTS test. He also wants to be able to speak English well so he can communicate with others easily and enjoy his life here in Australia.

Sayuri is from Japan and is one of four in her family, including her mother, father and younger sister. She has been wanting to study English overseas for a while now so is very happy to be here! She likes swimming, walking, travelling and photography, and enjoys her annual trips to the beach with her family. She studied English for 12 weeks in the Philippines and, though she learnt a lot there, is now looking forward to building on that knowledge and improving her speaking and listening skills. She decided to study in Australia because she loves Summer, the sea and warm places, and because she wanted to experience living in another country.

Slacklining! November 18

Today we had Olmo from @slacklinebyronbaybalancerevolution come by to teach us how to slackline!

img_0966

This activity requires patience, relaxation and awareness of breath and body to master.

Some of the students had a bit of experience slacklining at previous Lexis sessions and others were total beginners. All of them had a lot of fun learning and practicing the skills that enabled them to find their balance on the slackline!

You can find Olmo at the Circus Arts Park&Fly down at Denning Park (opposite Main Beach) over the Summer months. 🙂

Looking for accommodation in Byron Bay?

Color question mark in drawing house

Are you looking for somewhere to live in Byron Bay? It can be very tough finding the right place at the right price because so many other people want to live in the paradise of Byron Bay, especially coming into Summer.

The best places to  look for accommodation are:

  1. In the Echo newspaper which comes out every Wednesday (and is available online on Tuesday evening here)
    echo-600px
  2. On Gumtree under Real Estate – Property for Rent, which you can find here
    gumtree-logo
  3. On Facebook groups for rentals in the Byron area such as:
    Soul-full Abodes SHORT TERM for the Tribe Northern NSW
    Byron Bay Rental Sleuth
    Byron Bay Abodes
    Soul-full Abodes for the Tribe Northern NSW
    download
  4. Check noticeboards for posters advertising rooms for rent.
  5. Another option is doing a work exchange, where you work a set amount of hours per day or week in exchange for your accommodation. Find more information on this option at Work for Accommodation, Help Exchange, Willing Workers on Organic Farms and Work Away.

 

When you see a room advertised, contact the person as soon as possible! You can be sure many other people will contact them, so the sooner you contact them, the better chance you have of getting the place.

Whether you contact people by phone or by email, always be friendly and polite, and make sure to:
– introduce yourself (your name, where you are from, what you are doing in Byron Bay)
– say what you are looking for, for example: short term/long term rental, single/double/shared room, quiet/social/party house?
– ask questions about the room and house, for example: How many other people live there? Are bills included in the rent? Is wifi/internet available? Are there any pets?
– check when the room is available from and to.

When you go to see a room, make sure you are on-time, friendly, polite and ask them any further questions you have about the room. After you leave, make sure to tell them as soon as possible if you are interested in renting the room! Also tell them if you are not interested, so they can offer it to someone else who is searching for a place to rent in Byron Bay.

Above all, stay positive and be persistent! The more people and the quicker you contact people about rooms advertised for rent, the more likely you are to find somewhere to live! Good luck!

Coffee Lounge! November 15

Today at Coffee Lounge we played a game of Lexis Jenga to practice speaking English while enjoying coffee and TimTams!

img_0909

The students are getting quite good at Jenga, building precarious towers but being very skilled at extracting the tiles without making it fall!

Eventually it gets to a point when it is impossible to remove any tiles without the whole thing collapsing, despite Maya’s efforts!

In the afternoon we had our coffee and TimTams over a game of Pictionary!

img_0926

There were some interesting drawings, some incredible guesses and lots of laughter throughout the game. In the end, the team of Myuri and Mayumi won after leaping ahead by winning five rounds in a row!

New Starters! November 14

Welcome to the seven new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_0906

Gaetan is from Switzerland and is one of four in his family, including his mother, father and brother. He likes riding bikes, playing video games and, above all, doing these things with friends and family. After high school, he completed an apprenticeship as a mechanic before then studying Engineering. He is now studying English in Australia to enjoy the sun and the beach before returning to Switzerland to do his time in the army. In the future he hopes to do a Masters in Mechanics.

Franny is originally from the Dominican Republic but she now lives in Switzerland. She is one of eight in her family, with her mother and two of her brothers also living in Switzerland, and her father, sister and two more brothers still living in the Dominican Republic. She enjoys learning and speaking different languages, going to the beach, playing sport and cooking. After completing her studies and then working for a year at a university, she decided to study English in Australia for a new experience. She will be with us at Lexis Byron Bay for three weeks before travelling for another month.

Beatrice is from Switzerland and is one of three siblings, with a sister and a brother. She loves music, playing sport and enjoying life as much as possible! She completed high school two years ago and is now a professional Skier. Skiing is her passion and also her job, but right now she is injured so decided to travel to Australia. She would like to improve her English and learn more about different people and cultures. After five weeks of studying at Lexis Byron Bay she will return home to begin her rehabilitation and hopefully her skiing comeback!

Estefania is from Spain and is one of four in her family, with her mother, father and younger brother, plus her grandmother who is like her second mum! She loves sports and usually starts the day with an early morning run. For the past ten years she has worked as a model and hostess which allowed her to meet a lot of interesting people from all around the world. Last year she started studying Interior Design and is now taking a break to improve her English and hopes to become fluent. She decided to study in Australia to discover another way of life while being able to continue enjoying her fit and healthy lifestyle.

Karla is from Brazil and lives with her parents and younger sister. She enjoys going to the beach and watching movies. She studied Advertising and has a postgraduate degree in Cultural Production, and is partway through a second postgraduate degree in Quality Management which she will complete when she returns to Brazil. She chose to study in Australia because it is a safe country with lots of beautiful nature. She also wanted to experience living in a small town, so different from her big city, which is why she came to Lexis Byron Bay.

Emiko is from Japan and is one of four in her family, including her mother, father and older sister. She also has a cute dog called Annie and some fish. She likes cooking, drawing, latte art and spending time relaxing. She studied English for two months in the Philippines and came here to continue improving her knowledge so that she can make friends with people from all over the world. She is looking forward to exploring the town of Byron Bay and hopes to find work in Australia, either here or in Brisbane. She also hopes to spend lots of time at the beach with friends making lots of wonderful memories of her time here!

Bruno is from Brazil and has a sister (who speaks English very well) and a lovely dog called Rocky. He loves sports, though he watches more than he plays now, an also likes reading, bike riding, playing video games and going out for dinner or to the movies with his girlfriend. He studied Physical Education and Industrial Design and has worked as a Personal Trainer, a Pilates Instructor and a Gym Instructor. He decided to study in Australia because it is one of the few countries that allow you to work while you study and he also has a network of friends here. He hopes to speak English very well so that he can travel and live in any place in the world.

Beer Tasting! November 9

This afternoon we tasted a selection of beers from Australia, including a local Stone & Wood Pacific Ale, the famous Coopers Sparkling Ale and the “no hangover” low carb Pure Blonde.

img_0819

Many of the students already had their favourites, having sampled a few beers already in their time in Byron Bay, but were more than happy to taste them again, along with a few new ones they hadn’t tried yet!

img_0824

After tasting the seven different types of beers, everyone enjoyed finishing off the cold beers on such a hot, humid afternoon in Byron Bay.

img_0822

The activity inevitably turned into a great socialising event. The students were quick to turn the US election updates into a drinking game while sharing many stories about their own governments, and Astrid also gave us her own rendition of ‘Happy Birthday‘ played by blowing over the beer bottle tops! 🙂

Boomerang Painting! November 9

This morning we did some Boomerang Painting and learnt a little about Aboriginal Australia culture and art.

img_0812

The students enjoyed the chance to get creative, using the examples of traditional Aboriginal art including the symbols used for goanna and kangaroo tracks and the method of dot painting.

They also took advantage of the opportunity to practice speaking English during the activity, talking about boomerangs, the innate artistic ability that every person has, languages from around the world and the different dialects and accents in different locations. It was a relaxing activity and a perfect way to chill out on the morning after Student Night at Cheeky Monkeys!

Coffee Lounge! November 8

Today was Coffee Lounge day at Lexis Byron Bay!

At the morning session we played a game of Aussie Heads while enjoying our coffee and TimTams. The students were given a mystery card to stick on their forehead and had to ask questions to work out what place, object, sport or animal they were. Some were quite easy to figure out, like kangaroo and Lexis Byron Bay. Others were more difficult and required some prior knowledge of Australia, such as didgeridoo and TimTams! Either way, it was a good chance to practice speaking and learn some new English words.

img_0800

In the afternoon we drank coffee and ate TimTams over a game of Uno. There was some fierce competition to start, with Yuki and then Astrid winning the game quickly, followed slowly by the rest of us!  With students from all over the world playing, there were a few differences in the rules that each player uses. For example, how many cards do you pick up if you forget to say ‘uno’ when you have only one card left – one, two or seven? Compromises were made quickly and the game continued on in the same friendly but competitive nature that it started in!

It was also a great opportunity to practice their English skills, particularly their listening skills as they were told about the different types of beers they were sampling on the tasting paddles. The class enjoyed the local brews and having a lesson at a brewery!

New Starters! November 7

Welcome to the ten new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_0792

Sandro is from Switzerland and lives with his family in Zurich. His family consists of his mother, father and sister. He enjoys playing soccer for his local club and works for the Swiss postal service. He decided to study English at Lexis Byron Bay after his sister visited Byron Bay and told him how wonderful the town is. He will be in Australia for the next three months before returning to Switzerland to do his military service.

Michelle is from the beautiful city of Zurich in Switzerland. She is an only child and likes to draw, read books and spend time with friends. She works as a Draughtsperson and Site Manager for an architecture company. She decided to study English in Australia because her aunty lives here, in the Mount Burrell area between Nimbin and Uki, and has spent the past two weeks with her there. She plans to stay in Byron Bay for the next three months before travelling around Australia.

Delphine is from Switzerland and is the middle child, with an older brother and a younger sister. She enjoys spending time with friends and keeping active with crossfit, running and cycling. She works as a Secretary for a food company in Switzerland. Ten years ago she lived in Germany so that she could learn German which she needs for her job. She has always dreamed of visiting Australia which is why she decided to study English here, and chose Byron Bay for the small town and open space. She hopes to do a little bit of travel after her studies to see the Australian lifestyle and to learn how to surf.

Maxime is from Switzerland and is the youngest of four brothers in his family. He has a lot of hobbies, one of which is playing soccer for a local team. He studied at High School for three years but found it very boring and felt it seemed more like ten years! He came to study in Australia so that he could improve his English to help with travelling and because he wants to become a teacher when he returns home.

Rosa is from Spain and is one of five in her family including her mother, father and two younger brothers. She is originally from Valencia but has lived in Ibiza for the past three years.

She works as a Physiotherapist and would like to study to become a Personal Trainer. She loves playing sports, cooking, reading about nutrition and medicine, nature and films. She decided to study English in Australia because it is the most difficult accent for her to understand and chose to live in Byron Bay because it is quite similar to Ibiza. She plans to find a job and a place to live here in Byron Bay and hopes to stay for a year so that she can learn as much English as possible!

Barbara is from Brazil and is one of six siblings in her family, with her four sisters and one brother. She lives in her own place and has two cats who she loves!

Yurina is from Japan and is one of five in her family, including her mother, father, brother and sister. She enjoys watching movies. She came to Australia to study English because she wants to improve her speaking skills. She hopes to work in Australia but wants to improve her English so that one day she can speak more fluently.

Aussie Cooking! November 4

Today we got into the kitchen to bake some Anzac Biscuits!

img_0760

These Australian cookies originated approximately 100 years ago and were created to be sent overseas to soldiers at war. The biscuits contain ingredients that don’t spoil easily and the cookies, once baked and cooled, become hard and crunchy – and delicious!

After following the recipe to prepare the mixture, the biscuits only need about ten minutes to bake. Then, the hardest part of the whole process, you need to wait for the cookies to cool before eating them if you want to experience the delightful crunch that Anzac biscuits are known for!

If you want to try making these at home, here is the recipe:

ANZAC BISCUITS

2  cups rolled oats
1  cup plain flour
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/3 cup golden syrup
125g butter
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
3 tablespoons boiling water

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C.
  2. Place the oats, flour,  sugar and coconut in a bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Melt the butter and golden syrup together in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Combine the bicarb soda with the water and then add to the butter mixture.
  5. Pour butter mixture into the oat mixture, and mix together until well combined.
  6. Place a large spoonful of the mixture onto baking trays lined with baking paper. Flatten to 7cm rounds and make sure there is room between each cookie for them to spread while baking.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden in colour.
  8. Allow to cool on baking trays for 5 minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  9. Eat them and enjoy this tasty Australian treat!

Coffee Lounge! November 1

We had two sessions of Coffee Lounge today – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. At the morning session, we played Aussie Heads which requires asking questions to discover the identity of the card stuck to your forehead!

img_0661

It is a great game to help practice English by both asking questions, giving clues to other players, and guessing the right English word for your card. Everyone did really well with asking the right questions to discover their identity, even with the more difficult cards such as ‘Aussie Dollar’, ‘Great Barrier Reef’ and ‘Sandcastle’.

In the afternoon we played Lexis Jenga, which is just like normal Jenga but with a question written on each tile which the student answered when they had pulled it out.

img_0672

The questions help the students to learn some more English words and phrases, and encourage speaking to explain their answers. It is also a great game to help get to know each other – today we found out that Myuri likes to dance in the shower, Mayumi’s favourite movie is Titanic, and Yuki would make everyone visit Japan if he ruled the world!

Some students come along to Coffee Lounge for the conversation, others come for the TimTams…Roman and Pol are definitely here for the TimTams and would do just about anything for one of those biscuits!
