Body Boarding! 26 May

Last Friday the students went Bodyboarding!

Let’s Go Surfing, who we also book our surf lessons through, provided us with the boards and wetsuit hire 🙂

The waves were perfect as they weren’t too big, but were too small for surfing, so definitely a good day for our bodyboarding activity!

The sun was shining and the water still relatively warm!

The students had a great time in the waves and all agreed we should do this activity again soon….so it’s been arranged for the 15th of June!

Slacklining! 25th May

Yesterday Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution  came in to teach us some slacklining skills!

A lot of the students had gone for a BBQ at the beach, but myself, Raphael, Lisa and Anais all had a turn at perfecting our balance!

Olmo guided us through; helping us focus on our breathing and making sure we were always looking up and ahead!

He talked to us about how learning the skills to balance can also help us in life; by working on breathing techniques to keep calm and control fears, and also making sure we are always looking forward.

In his 5 weeks at Lexis he has made a noticeable improvement of all areas of his English. He brought much laughter tot he classroom and interacted well with his classmates. Good luck for the future Sandro!

Adrienne

Valentina, from Chile, graduates from Mel and Adrienne’s Intermediate class. Her teachers have both thoroughly enjoyed teaching her. She is a very intelligent student and understood new grammar quickly and effortlessly. We hope you’ve enjoyed your time her at Lexis and wish you the very best for the future!

Kristy

Coffee Lounges – May!

Throughout May we’ve continued to have our weekly Coffee Lounges!

I’d really like to think the students just come to spend time with me, playing games and having conversations, but I have a sneaky suspicion Tim Tams and doughnuts may have something to do with it……….

We’ve played games including President,

Jenga with Questions,

IMG_5936

and a Spanish variation of Snap!

We were also treated to some card tricks and posing from Albert and Tito!
