Today we welcome 5 fabulous new starters:

Maria is from Argentina and is staying with her friend here in Australia. She wants to improve her English because it’s important to get a good job in Argentina. Maria is a university student back home and her hobbies include cooking Asado and playing volleyball. If possible, Maria would like to stay longer in Australia and work towards to the Cambridge First.

Laurene from France is also a university student. She is from France but is currently studying medicine in Switzerland. She will spend 4 weeks at Lexis Byron Bay before travelling up the East Coast to Cairns. Her English is already good, even though she claims to have learned mostly from watching TV series, so she will join the Upper Intermediate class to work on accuracy. Her hobbies include water activities, hanging out with friends and music.

Isabel is from Zurich in Switzerland. She has already been travelling in Australia with her boyfriend and now he has gone home she has come to Byron Bay to study. She needs better English for her studies in Information Technology, which she will begin on her return to Switzerland. She likes reading, walking and playing the guitar amongst other things.

Keigo from Japan is here on a Working Holiday Visa, which means that he hopes to live and work in Australia for the next year. In Japan, he managed a Lacoste store so he’d like to do something similar if he can improve his English enough. In his free time, Keigo likes doing physical activities like dancing, double dutch and skating.

Severin (Sevi) from Switzerland is 27. He trained as an architect and worked for several small companies before beginning his travels in January. He has been working his way around South East Asia and New Zealand and has chosen to stop in Byron Bay for a while to ‘take a rest’. He’s looking to improve the accuracy of his English and also keen to meet other students who might be interested in travelling with him at the end of his course.

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.
