Tito and Maxime have just returned from their travels so there was lots of excitement and hugs in the afternoon session! Glad to hear you had a nice time on your trips boys and nice to see you back at Lexis!

Aussie Cooking – Anzac Cookies! 19 Jan

Today we cooked a popular Australian treat; Anzac biscuits!

To make them even sweeter we also added melted chocolate for decoration (although a lot of the chocolate was just eaten straight from the bowl!)

Everyone had great fun and the biscuits from both the morning and afternoon session were a success! I was lucky enough to try them both 🙂

 

The biscuits are really simple and quick to make. If you’d like to make some more at home or you missed out on today’s activity, here’s the easy to follow recipe:

INGREDIENTS

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. Enjoy this tasty Australian treat!

Coffee Club! 18th January

We had great fun at Coffee Club today!

Some students so much so they came to both the morning and afternoon sessions!

We played Jenga with the added fun of there being a question on each wooden block! Every time someone pulled one out they had to read out and answer their question.

It was a brilliant way of getting to know more about each other and get conversations started!

Some of the students who had tried slacklining before were able to try out some new tricks, such as standing on the line from a crouched position; well done those that managed this!

Skateboarding!! 11th January

Yesterday Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School joined us at Lexis to teach the students how to skate!

Most people had never skated before so Flavio focused on the basics and had the students weaving in and out of cones!

The weather was beautiful and warm so it was great to be outside in the sun 🙂

Everyone had lots of fun and we’re looking forward to having Flavio back again next month to improve our skills even more, and for those who missed out to also give it a go!

Coffee Club! 4th January

Following our huge intake of wonderful new students on Tuesday, we played some get-to-know-you games at Wednesday’s coffee club and students new and old enjoyed a Tim Tam and had a giggle. The first coffee club of 2017 commenced with a game of ‘Aussie heads’ or at least this is how the game is known at Lexis. With the name of a random objects stuck to your head, you must use only your conversational powers to find out who or what you are. A little new to the game, our fantastic new student activities and support officer Claire found herself last to guess correctly – a little embarrassing but she has now recovered from the defeat and is feeling hopeful for next weeks’ game.

The afternoon coffee club was enjoyed in the sunshine and again Tim Tams showed their incredible ability to encourage our students to converse in impeccable English. We started by sharing our stories  and it was fascinating to discover what had brought these students from various countries all around the world to study in the mesmerizing location of Byron Bay. With their surf boards, glowing tans and flipflops it was hard to imagine the lives they had left, working for banks in Switzerland and airports in Italy.
