A snap shot of Friday at Lexis Byron!

It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining and everyone has that Friday feeling at Lexis Byron!

 

IMG_8584IMG_8581

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

IMG_8583

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 🙂

Welcome to our twelve new students starting Lexis Byron Bay today!

IMG_8366

Lorena lives in Barcelona, Spain where she works as a vet. She is very happy and grateful to have this job as she has always had a special relationship with animals and loves being able to help them. She has come to Australia not only to improve her English, but also to travel, practice surfing and to see the native wildlife!

Thomas is from Switzerland, where he lives with his brother near Davos in the Swiss Alp. His main hobby is to restore old classic cars and drive them around Switzerland’s beautiful streets and mountains. He also loves travelling and this is why he wants to improve his English, so he can speak with people from all over the world. He chose Australia for his studies as he has only ever heard good things from his friends who have been here before!

Elisa is from Italy and loves dancing and reading. She has just finished studying Fashion Design in Como, near Milan. She wanted to come to Australia to study as it is very different from where she lives, much more relaxed! She also chose Australia because of her love for animals; she is looking forward to seeing kangaroos and swimming with sharks while she is here! When she returns to Italy she would like to go to University to become a vet.

Chiara is from Switzerland, the Italian part. She has a bachelor in Interior Design but currently works as a architect. She loves to travel and wants to improve her English for her summer of travel! She will study with us until February and then travel Indonesia. She is looking forward to her time here and escaping the winter in Switzerland!

Virginia is from Monza, Italy; famous for hosting the Formula 1 and one of the biggest parks in Europe! She loves animals and cooking Italian food for her family and friends. She is really looking forward to learning English and surfing while in Byron Bay, and also enjoying the beautiful weather in this wonderful country!

Brice is from France and a basketball player. He speaks fluent French and also Spanish as he lived there for a while, but now he would like to improve his English so he can study in Business School. He came to Byron Bay on the recommendation of our moved loved former student Raphael Mesplede; we’re sure he’ll love it here just as much!

Ruth is from Switzerland and here with her husband, Benjamin. Together they have studied English in New Zealand and will now study with us for 12 weeks, before visiting South America! Her hobbies include travelling, swimming and reading.

Benjamin, Ruth’s husband, is also from Switzerland and together they have a son and daughter. He enjoys swimming, diving, skiing and walking. They are both wanting to improve their English for their travels around Australia and South America, which they will be doing until August next year!

Soichiro, from Japan, enjoys basketball, boxing, scuba diving and singing. He wants to be able to speak fluent English as he plans to be a singer, designer and business man and would like to be able to work all around the world. He chose Byron Bay for his studies as he loves nature, music and the fashion here!

Santiago, from Spain, describes himself as a positive person who loves sports, cinema and travel. He has just finished studying Law in Spain and would now like to obtain a high level of English for his future job. He chose to study in Australia because of friends recommendations, the weather and the nice people!

Rafael, from Spain, would prefer to be known as Rafa! He enjoys reading, sports, travelling and hanging out with friends. He finished his bachelor in Economics at the University of Granada in June and is now enjoying a lovely gap year between his Degree and Masters. He chose to come to Byron Bay to improve his English as it’s a completely different culture and lifestyle for him!

Noemi is from Switzerland, where she works as a nurse. When she’s not working she likes to go out with her friends, bake cakes and travel with her family. It has been a dream of hers for many years to come to Australia so she is really happy to be here now!

Volleyball! 15th September

Last Friday we had two Volleyball competitions!

For the morning match we were a player short, so our Sales and Marketing Director, Jason, kindly stepped in to make sure the game still went ahead! Thanks Jason, you done a great job!!

They decided they just wanted to play for fun so no-one kept score, meaning they could share the 6 pack of winners beer between them all!

 

For the afternoon match they were far more competitive! They played 3 matches to decide who the winners would be….

Teacher Josie was on hand to referee although wasn’t the best at keeping up with the score! Luckily the students were on top of it and although I’m told it was very close…

Team Richard, Ramona, Yuta, Damaris and Oli took the trophy (beer!) winning 2 of the matches!

Lexis Swiss Reunion!!

Last month some of our past students reunited in Switzerland!!!

Swiss Reunion.JPG

Past Lexis students reunited! Angelo, Lisa, Valerie, Thomas, Maxime, Jodie, Estelle, Gaetan, Romain, Camille, Pauline, Anais, Amelie and Tito! 

They all studied at Lexis Byron Bay over the last summer; with half completing our Cambridge Course and the other half studying in our General English classes.

After forming such great friendships during their time in Byron Bay they decided to reunite in Switzerland to have a catch up and reminisce, and in true Aussie style done it with a BBQ!

It was Valerie who started the plans and after a couple of months of messages and calls between them all they finally made it happen!

I got in touch with Tito to ask about their meet up and he provided me with this beautiful quote:

“It’s difficult to find the correct words to describe an incredible experience, maybe because it’s so unique, that you can only feel. It’s difficult to find the correct words to describe an incredible experience, something you lived that was so remarkable, that nobody could understand. Nobody, apart from the people you shared it with.”

 

Great to see all your lovely faces together and hopefully one day we’ll see them all again in Byron Bay?!

Peruvian Cooking! 6th September

Today’s activity was Peruvian Cooking!

IMG_8046

Johana, one of our students from Peru, very kindly led the activity and showed us all how to make the popular Peruvian dish Ceviche!

She done a great job of taking lead, giving fellow students jobs and talking to everyone about the dish; thank you Johana!

Although I was a bit apprehensive about eating raw fish, Johana explained to me the lime juice you cover it in actually cooks the fish a bit! I’m really glad I did try it though as it was delicious!!!

It’s really great having our students share things from their country with us, so if you would like to host an activity to share your culture and/or passion come speak to me 🙂
