Cameron, from Belgium, graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class. Though he was only here for 2 weeks, he made a real impression on the his teacher and his classmates. Josie expressed what a pleasure it was to teach him. His English is excellent and he is keen to learn and get involved in class. His friendliness and positive attitude have made him a real asset to the class and he will be missed. Good luck for the future and enjoy the rest of your time in Byron Bay!

Gustavo, from Brazil, also graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class. He has been with us for 12 weeks and he has been a fantastic student. He has contributed to class with his ideas and humour. We wish you all the best Gustavo, and we will see you back at Lexis Byron Bay before long!

Felipe, from Chile, graduates from Paul’s Intermediate class. Paul tells us how he has been a fantastic student and classmate, always showing interest in getting to know others and at the same time practising his English. His English has improved a great deal in the last 12 weeks, especially his speaking ability. We wish you all the best for the future Felipe!

19648305_244338792732084_1785968704_oFrancesc, from Catalonia, graduates from Ellie’s advanced class, having been with us since January. Starting in Pre Intermediate, and completed his Cambridge FCE course, he has made great progress. He will certainly be missed here at Lexis by teachers and students alike. He goes on to travel around the world before returning to Catalonia to study visual design. Good luck with everything Cesc!

Charlotte, from Germany, graduated from Josie’s advanced class, having just taken her IELTS exam. We welcomed her back to Lexis in May after she graduated in December 2016. She put a great deal of effort into the preparation for her IELTS exam and her standard of English is extremely good. She leaves us with a highly impressive vocabulary and grasp of language. Good luck for the future Charlotte!

Activities in July

Activity Calendar

The July activity calendar is now confirmed:

Some highlights includes next week’s sushi making competition. You don’t need experience for this as we will provide ingredients and a basic recipe. However, each chef or team of chefs can create their very own flavours and designs for judging.

The following week, we have the ever popular boomerang painting and table tennis tournament plus wine tasting with Naomi. This will sadly be Naomi’s very last day at Lexis English so make sure you all go along to say “Cheers”.

Week three sees the return of body boarding. This activity is completely free and all equipment is provided. Maybe this time, Claire will actually get in the water and have a go!

Finally, on the Friday of week 4 you can learn all about the incredibly popular sport of rugby. This activity is definitely for girls as well as boys and you don’t need to know anything about rugby beforehand. Claire is really keen to share her love of this sport with you all, we hope you can come along.

You’ll also notice that the activity calendar now includes a column showing the weekend activities offered by BWT. You’ll need to see Shak to book these and remember the more students that sign up the more fun it is and the better the price can be.

News Starters! 26th June

Today Lexis Byron Bay welcomes 8 new starters!

IMG_6756[1]

Renata, from Brazil, has come to Byron to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of our lovely Beach town. Living in the bustling city of São Paulo she decided to escape and enjoy the quiet and relaxed lifestyle of Byron Bay. She studied advertising at university and has since pursued a career in it – she hopes that becoming completely fluent in English will boost her career even more.

Silvia, also from Brazil, has come to Byron to enjoy the Australian culture and to rest and relax. She left Brazil to explore the world and has traveled through Asia, starting in Thailand and ending in Bali, having explored the Island on a motorbike.

Gregory, from Paris, decided to come travelling in Australia and New Zealand to improve his English for his career. While he is here he is keen to explore Australia and see some of its many beautiful sights like the Whitsunday Islands.

Victor, from Mauritius joins us for the second time at Lexis Byron Bay, having studied and surfed here for 2 weeks last year. He returns to Byron as he thinks immersing himself in the English language is the best way to learn – that and he is a little obsessed with surfing!

Yanis, also from Mauritius, did not come to Byron for the beach or the sunshine, as they also get plenty of this in their home. He came to Byron to improve his English but most importantly to surf. He would like to continue to travel after he finishes his studies and his is considering going to University in Singapore!

Pierre, from Belgium, was told by his friend that Australia was amazing, and he wanted to come to see it for himself. Pierre had to postpone his trip to Byron, so he has been looking forward to coming here for a long time! He is glad to finally be here to surf and improve his English.

Nozomi, from Japan, has come to Byron to enjoy the chilled lifestyle and the beautiful beaches. She likes to surf and listen to music and she is excited to meet people of various nationalities and learn about other cultures.

We are also delighted to welcome back Desiree, from Spain, after a short break from school.
