New Starters! 27 November

Welcome to our six new students joining us today at Lexis Byron Bay!

Group

Silvan is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. His hobbies include skiing, fitness and listening to music. After finishing school he worked as a roofer and carpenter but will join the Swiss army for 5 months when he returns. He wants to improve his English as it is the language of the world and he would like to travel Canada, USA and England as well as Australia!

Juliana, from Brazil, enjoys swimming, cycling and watching movies. She also loves going to beach and would like to learn to surf, so Byron Bay was the perfect choice for her studies! She also chose this location because of the beautiful weather that is similar to Brazil. She believes this learning experience will be very important for her future work and life!

Rafael, from Brazil, is the second oldest son in a family of seven men! In Brazil his job was to audit big companies and give them financial advice, but he decided he needed a break from this and that’s what has brought him to Byron! It has always been his dream to come to Australia and he is wanting to improve his English so he can either find work here or further his career in Brazil!

Nana is from Nagano, Japan. They get a lot of snow here in the winter so she snowboards often. She loves animals and has a dog named Sappu and a cat named Hana (flower in Japanese). She is looking forward to studying hard, meeting new people and having a good time whilst here with us at Lexis!

Amanda, from Brazil, loves travelling and experiencing new things! She has just graduated in Chemical Engineering and during her studies worked as an intern at Sandland, a business management consultant company. She wants to improve her English so she can complete a post graduate course in Australia!

Luis, from Brazil, will study with us at Lexis Byron for 24 weeks in General English before starting our Business course at the end of May. Before coming to Byron he also studied at Lexis Brisbane! He is here with his wife and they are both hoping to find work and stay here in Australia for at least 2 or 3 years!

End of Cambridge BBQ! 24 November

Today we had a BBQ to celebrate the end of our current Cambridge courses!

Our two Cambridge classes, Advanced with Josie and First with Paul, have just finished their 12 weeks of study, so we thought they deserved a treat for all their hard work!

They were joined by the students from our General English classes so they could all enjoy some sausages and drinks together in the sun!

Myself and Harriett made sure nobody went hungry and everyone was delighted with their free lunch!

Good luck to our Cambridge students with your remaining exams!!

Cider Tasting! 22 November

Yesterday’s activity was Cider Tasting!

IMG_0449

We tried 5 different ciders: Apple Mercury, Pear Monteith’s, Blackberry Somersby, Apple and Ginger Hills and Strawberry and Lime Rekoderlig.

IMG_0436

I covered all the labels so the students could then guess the flavours, the country where it was made, alcohol percentage and price!

Cider answers

After each one they discussed together and decided on their answers as a team.

There were a lot of surprised reactions with the answers I gave at the end, especially the Hills being 8% and the Somersby being blackberry flavoured and not cherry!

IMG_0382.JPG

Giorgia, from Italy, has already been living in Australia for the past 2 years. Prior to this she was living in London for 3 years but decided she wanted to be somewhere warmer! She has spent much of her time here travelling this amazing country but is now thinking about her future, so will be studying English with us for the next 5 weeks ready for her upcoming University course!

Diego, from Spain, likes sports, video games and hanging out with his friends. He has been studying Business and working in a bank, but decided to take a break to come to Australia! He plans to study English with us for 12 weeks before completing our 30 week Business course and hopefully starting his own company on his return to Spain!

Suguru, from Japan, enjoys rafting, canyoning and stand up paddle boarding! This is part of the reason he chose Australia for his studies, as he is able to do all of these activities here and enjoy the beautiful nature! He wants to improve his English so he can complete a yoga training course whilst in Australia and open his own yoga studio on his return to Japan!

Natalia is from Spain. Her main interest is her job as a Therapist; she loves learning new techniques to apply to her patients. She trained as a Thai masseuse in Thailand and would now like to find work in a Byron resort or spa.  She wants to improve her English as she feels it is an important language to know and to allow her to communicate with more people!

Maxime is from Switzerland, the French part. He has played Volleyball since he was 12 and also enjoys skiing, wakeboarding and surfing. He has just finished his Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering with a specialisation in heart implants. He is at Lexis to improve his English as it is very important within the world of Biomedicine. Australia was an easy pick for his studies because of the warm and sunny weather!

Joel is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. His hobbies include swimming, reading the news and meeting up with his friends. After high school he studied Mechanical Engineering and worked two years in this job, before then studying Management and Finance.  He choose Byron Bay for his English studies because of the good atmosphere here!

Pascal Runch

Pascal is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. This is his fifth time to Australia; he has previously studied at Lexis Perth and traveled around much of this spectacular country! He has been working in a chocolate factory as an electrical engineer for the past 6 and a half years and is currently completing a masters degree in Business Engineering.

Vegan Brownies! 9 November

Last week we made Vegan Brownies!

Harriett and myself assisted the students as they worked together to make this vegan friendly desert!

The results were delicious! If you’d like to try yourself at home here’s how:

Ingredients

5 tablespoons sunflower oil

200g dark chocolate (dairy free if you want to make it vegan)

170g of self-raising flour

3 heaped teaspoons of cocoa powder

180g golden caster sugar

230ml coconut milk

200g walnuts

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180¬ļC/350¬ļF/gas 4. Grease a square baking tin (roughly 20cm) with a little oil, then line with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn’t touch the water. Break 150g of chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, sieve the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar. Stir in the oil, milk and melted chocolate until combined.
  4. Roughly chop and stir in the remaining chocolate and most of the nuts reserving a few for the top. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle over the remaining pecans, then place into the hot oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked on the outside, but still gooey in the middle.
  5. Leave to cool for around 5 minutes, turn out onto a wire cooling rack, and then serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if you’re feeling extra indulgent.

Jewellery Making! 15 November

Yesterday’s activity was Jewellery Making!

Myself and Harriett showed the students how to make net wrap pendants that they could then make into bracelets, necklaces, key chains or decorations!

They had a selection of beads, stones and shells to choose from and we then gave them a tutorial on how to make the nets to hold them.

It was up to the students how they wanted to finish it off, but we showed them a couple of options including different ways of braiding.

Some students got even more creative and made their own style of bracelets and necklaces!

Every piece made was unique and beautiful, and a great souvenir or gift from their time in Byron!

SWEET EXCHANGE! 14 November

This week Lexis Byron Bay hosted a Sweet Exchange! We encouraged all of our students and staff to bake or buy something sweet to bring in and share with their school friends and teachers!

Sweet Exchange

Everyone who came along had to donate a minimum of one gold coin ($1 or $2) and could then help themselves to as much cake, biscuits and chocolate as they could eat!

The money raised will be given to two charities; Golden Oldies Animal Rescue and WIRES Wildlife Rescue. These 2 charities are close to mine and Lisa’s heart; Lisa has¬† adopted two elderly dogs and an 8 year old cat from rescue groups like Golden Oldies and I am a volunteer/rescuer for WIRES. Last week we got all the students together and each did a presentation for our chosen charities, explaining all the good they do and how our donations would help. Jacko, Lisa’s 14 year old Jack Russell cross, came along to help Lisa express how much the charity means to her. It’s fair to say he stole the show and everyone loved having him at school for the day!

We are so pleased and proud of how many of our students and staff got involved. Many made things together as a class, others baked at home and some bought from shops; all contributions were greatly appreciated!

Once we received all the food at reception I set everything up in one of our classrooms ready for the morning and afternoon breaks!

We had two pots at the front so everyone could choose which charity to donate to, with many putting in both, and they were then able to help themselves to all the treats one offer!

There was a huge variety to choose from, including an assortment of cheesecakes, lemon slice, cinnamon scroll, chocolate cake, brigadeiro, chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes and Aussie favorite Tim Tams!

My first attempt on a Banoffee Pie was miraculously a success and finished off before I even got try it!

There were so many delicious treats brought in we even had enough left over to do a silver coin donation the next day!

A huge thank you to everyone that bought something in and everyone who donated to our chosen charities, it is very much appreciated and we’re really looking forward to letting the charities know how much Lexis has raised for them…

Which is a total of $280!!

November’s Table Tennis Tournament!

On Wednesday we held our monthly Table Tennis Tournament to find out who our November champion would be!!

We had 4 players in our morning competition, with Brice walking away as the winner!

Not content with just being our morning champion, he decided to skip class in the afternoon (which is never encouraged here at Lexis but it was a rare occasion for Brice!) to see if he could be crowned our overall November champion!!

Our afternoon competition started with 16 players. Everyone was paired off and played first to 11, with the winner staying on for the next round.

Tobias, our September and October champion, was knocked out in the semi finals by Shin.

This took Shin through to the final against Brice, who had just beaten Gustavo.

Shin played an extremely good game but Brice managed to secure his place as November’s Table Tennis Superstar!!

Paper Free Day!! 7th November

On Tuesday all of our Lexis campuses supported World Paper Free Day!

World Paper Free Day is an annual campaign that aims to reduce the amount of paper generated by people in their everyday work and personal life. Businesses and people are encouraged to stop using paper for the whole day in order to stop them being so reliant on it!

We turned the photocopier and printers off to encourage us all to think about our paper usage and to get our teachers to be even more creative with lesson planning!

For Kathleen’s Intermediate class she used PowerPoint slides and encouraged her students to take pictures on their phones rather than needing photocopies of the slideshow. They then played vocabulary races; where the students were split into teams and had to describe a list of words to the rest of their team members, the winners were the team who guessed all their words the quickest!

Anji took her IELTs class to an internet cafe to research useful sites for IELTs materials. They also did a speaking workshop to help prepare them for their upcoming exams!

Claudia’s Upper Native Speaker options class spent the afternoon in pairs practicing their speaking and conversation skills.

Adrienne had her class explaining how to play different card games to each other for her Conversations options class.
