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