This week I caught up with Chiara one of our Swiss Italian students who has been studying with us at Lexis Byron since September.
Chiara always has a positive vibe and a huge smile on her face so I thought I would ask her a few questions about her adventure so far studying English in Byron Bay……….
So Chiara, why did you choose Byron Bay ?
I chose Byron Bay because I don’t really like to spend a long time in a city. I feel that the ocean and the easy going life style are two of the most important things in life.
Byron Bay is so relaxed, chilled out and full of beautiful beaches and nature! I know a few students who have studied in Byron Bay and they were all very happy with their experience at Lexis English.
What were your weakness in English before you moved to Australia ?
Before I came to Lexis I could speak English with people but not really explain myself well. I missed a lot of words and always felt a little shy. Since I’ve been at Lexis I have become a lot more confident and love to chat in English with my friends whenever I can.
Tell me about your teachers and your classes.
I love my classmates they have become my close friends! We are always laughing and having a great time. When I leave Lexis I’ll for sure stay in contact with them!
Adrienne, my teacher is amazing, funny and very helpful.
Whats your favorite activity ?
I enjoy all the activities at school and try to go to all of them. I do prefer the activities outside the school. My favorite was body boarding at the beach. It was really fun and the waves were amazing! We even saw dolphins!
Tell me about your accommodation.
My accommodation is amazing! I am living in a homestay with Elly and Toby. They are really kind and they cook delicious food everyday. They will do anything to help me out and I really feel welcome and part of their family.
What are your favorite things to do in Byron ?
I love going to the beach when I’m not at school. I live just a short bike ride away from the Tallows beach. I love to go there and walk without my shoes on!
Whats is your most magical moment in Bryon ?
I think that everyday gives me something magical. Everyday is different compared to Switzerland. Just to see the sunrise and sunset is very special to me.
What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
Lexis is a very nice school, all the teachers and employees are very friendly and helpful. Everyone is very happy here, its easy to make new friends and have fun together !
Learn English in Byron Bay. Lexis English students study General English, IELTS, FCE, CAE and English plus Surfing or Yoga in a friendly and professional school right in the heart of Byron Bay and only 15 minutes from the beach.
