Graduation! 28th April

Congratulations to our eight students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay this week!

Mels

Martina, from Italy, is graduating from Kathleen’s Upper Intermediate class. Kathleen expressed what a pleasure it was to have Martina in the class as she made so many positive contributions to the learning environment. Her participation in class discussions was excellent and her intelligent, analytical questions benefited all the students. She richly deserves her A achievement grade as she worked very hard in class and in self-study. Your English will surely continue to improve as you have a wonderful attitude to language learning.  Martina is off to travel around Asia: exploring countries like Japan, Bali and Cambodia. Have a wonderful time Martina, you will be missed here!

(Oliver did not graduate, and is holding up the register.)

Sophie, from Switzerland, is graduating from Kathleen’s Upper Intermediate class. She is a very intelligent student, which makes it no surprise that she graduates with a grade A. She understands new language easily and always participates well with her classmates. Her listening skills are excellent and her writing skills have improved steadily each week. Keep working hard at Lexis Perth- we wish you the best of luck for the future!

Kristy

Suji, from Korea, is graduating from Kristy’s Pre-intermediate class. Suji is a great and positive person who has shown great progress in ALL areas of English, especially her speaking and listening – well done! Her grammar is strong and she is extending her vocabulary too. All the very best for when you return and enter Intermediate level – you’re ready for it!

Nami, from Japan, is graduating from Kristy’s Pre-intermediate class. She is a great student and a very kind person. She tries very hard with her pronunciation and she has learnt a lot of new vocabulary and grammar. She has shown a great deal of progress in all areas of her English – especially her speaking and listening. Well done Nami- all the best for the future!

Thais, from Brazil, is graduating from Kristy’s pre-intermediate class. When she came to Lexis she was very new to English, now she’s graduating pre-intermediate and her last test result was 98%. She has shown excellent progress in her grammar and vocabulary. It has been wonderful to have you at school Thais, good luck in your next venture!

Helena

Helena, from Spain (actually Catalonia), graduates from Mel and Adrienne’s Intermediate class. Her English has improved a huge amount in the last twelve weeks, especially her writing. Her exam results have also improved steadily. She has an excellent attitude to her studies and participated well with her classmates. We will certainly miss Helena coming into reception and laughing at everything! She is going onto travel round Australia and then to Bali, and meeting up with some of her friends from Lexis along the way. Good luck Helena, you will be missed!

Adrienne

Sandra, from Switzerland, graduates from Mel and Adrienne’s Intermediate class. She has come so far in the past eleven weeks with her English and also with her confidence. It has been a delight to see Sandra make so many friends and engage in all the social activities Byron has to offer. She worked very hard and been dedicated to her studies, and her writing and listening skills are testimony to this. Her lovely personality and smile have brightened the classroom. Sandra goes onto Nice, France next to live with a homestay family and fully immerse herself in the French language and culture, what a fantastic adventure! Good luck Sandra!

Shogo, from Japan, graduates from Mel and Adrienne’s Intermediate class. He was a pleasure to have in class. He started his course in the Elementary class and has made excellent progress to be graduating from the Intermediate class 12 weeks later. His pronunciation has improved most profoundly during his time here. He has been a wonderful addition to the class and will be sorely missed. Shogo will be staying local in Byron Bay and finding himself a job here so that he can continue to improve his English by working with native speakers. Good luck Shogo!

Happy Student – Raphael!

18058034_213904745775489_849168858838328131_n

Raphael is from Bayonne in the South-West of France, he is 18 years old and he headed straight to Australia after finishing high school in France. He arrived in Byron Bay in November 2016 and stayed until March. He’s now headed to Bundaberg to do his farm work, so that he can save up for more travelling around Australia.  Raphael joined us an an intermediate speaker and on leaving he achieved an overall A in his Upper Intermediate class. Raphael is sorely missed here at Lexis. Who will DJ for our parties and BBQs now? I’m sure Cheeky Monkeys is missing its most regular customer too.

Raphael has answered some questions for us about his time at Lexis.

 Why did you choose Byron Bay?

I remember the evening I spent with my mother in France, choosing the destination for my gap year. Originally, I decided the USA, but then I found a video about surfing in Australia – which made me fall in love with Byron Bay: the best place to surf in Australia! For me Byron is the perfect place for me: small, peaceful, joyful, good waves, no big buildings, but lots of bars to party all week!

Raphael on his very first day of school

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia?

My major weakness in English when I arrived here were – everything! English was my weakness. But more seriously – it was my ability to understand the first time what someone told me. I had to make them repeat 3 or 4 times. Now I can see how far my English has come. Now I can understand films without subtitles easily!

Tell me about your teachers and your classes.

All of the teachers I had at Lexis were lovely. They were truly knowledgeable and made learning fun. In intermediate I had Iruka, I spent many funny times in her class. Then I moved into Upper Intermediate with the lovely Elyse, who was awesome and then I had Kathleen and her amazing games! My most memorable lesson was with Elyse when we had to dress with newspapers (yes yes newspapers!) when we were learning vocabulary about fashion and clothing design. That was ridiculous but so funny! 😂

 What is it like living in our onsite Accommodation?

BBSA is now like my home. I met people from all around the world and I learnt about lots of different cultures. The best moments spent were the Christmas dinner, when we cooked Hamburgers, the sushi parties with the Japaneses people, the dinner tortillas with the Spanish guys, the spaghetti party with the Swiss people.Yes you’ve understood, all the best moments are around food! 😂

What were your favourite things to do in Byron? 

The best times were all the parties with my bro Tito [See last week’s happy student blog!]  and all the others who are like my international family, the days of hangovers when we were all regretting going out the night before. But the best activity was surfing by far. All the surf sessions spent with Hiro, Nil, Pol, Tito and all the others were the time of my life.

18157017_213904705775493_6359306942790598976_n

What is your most magical moment in Byron?

I remember a time I was surfing at the Pass during sunset, catching one of the best waves I ever caught. The sun was going down in front of me, the reflection of the sun making the water yellow and orange, I’ll remember this all my life I think. I understood how peaceful life can be; in front of me, it was like the most beautiful painting I’ve ever seen: a colorful sunset on the beach. At my right there were people taking pictures and I had a strange feeling that made me understand you have to enjoy the moment with your eyes rather through your phone.  Yes I know it sounds very philosophical, but for me happiness is about little things like this.

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?

My advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay is: Go for it!!! I am 100% sure you’ll not regret it, you will make so much progress with your English, furthermore, there are good activities everyday and lovely people to spend time with.

Raphael graduating – how far he has come!

What does the future hold for you now? 

My plans after my farm work are to keep traveling around Australia, then Bali and maybe New Zealand, before coming back to France and going to university😭. Australia gave me the taste of travel, so I’d like to go in each country in Europe to keep discovering new cultures and people. I also want to go to Kenya and South America too! I want a life of adventure and travel, my nightmare is to be trapped in a routine with my job, Byron Bay has given me a taste of paradise and now I want to keep exploring.

It has been an absolute joy to have him here with us at Lexis; he has a wonderful enthusiasm for learning and natural curiosity about language.
