As you can see by the giant smiles on their faces, the students have spent their lunch relaxing and chatting  in the sunshine!

In the afternoon the General English students have their options classes. They are usually full of lots of fun, games and laughter!

 

This week in Harriett’s Speaking and Writing class the students  discussed famous super stars. The students enjoyed playing the guess who celebrity game. Some students really got into character  using different hats and props!

The class then decided to create their own Lexis English Celebrity talk show!

There was a variety of interviews in the classroom with  super star guests such as Rihanna and Selena Gomez. It was great fun and a great way to practice speaking and listening!

Farmers Market!

Every Thursday we have a Farmers Market here in Byron Bay!

It’s a great place to buy some fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables 🙂

Our teachers often take their students there as part of their lesson, which is always a fun and delicious excursion for everyone! Last week Kathleen took her Intermediate class to practice food and cooking vocabulary; they all had a great morning in the sunshine and picked up some healthy treats!

Student Cooking Class with Chef Bianca!! 27 September

One of our wonderful students, Bianca, kindly led a Cooking Class for some of her fellow Lexis students today!

Bianca studied Nutrition and Gastronomy at University and owned her own restaurant in Brazil where she worked as a Chef. She loves sharing her passion with others so offered to run an activity to teach us how to make quick and healthy toasties on a student budget!

As Bianca was doing the preparation and assigning people jobs she gave us lots of great cooking tips, like the best way to cut, how to tell how an avocado is ripe (it’s not by squeezing them all!) and flavours and textures that work well together.

Our fillings included avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled eggs and bocconcini, flavored with lemon, snow pea sprouts, basil and leek!

We all then sat down together to enjoy our delicious creations!

Many of the students asked if Bianca could do this every day, but we’ve settled for one day next month! Thank you so much for sharing your love with us Bianca 🙂
