New Starters – 20 August

This week, we welcome 2 new starters: Claudia from Switzerland and Antonio from Spain.


Claudia is from the Italian part of Switzerland so her mother tongue is Italian but she also speaks fluent French as she studied for 5 years in Lausanne. She is a psychologist and has spent the last year working in a hospital clinic and a prison. She will start a new job in a private clinic on her return to Switzerland. She is in Australia for 12 weeks and at Lexis English for four of those. When she has finished at school she plans to travel up the East Coast and is currently looking for a travel buddy! She loves sport and her favourites are tennis and jogging.

Antonio is from Southern Spain and he is mad about surfing. He joins us on our English and Surfing programme and he is very excited to be surfing in Byron Bay. His dream is to teach surfing in Spain and, for this, he will need English as his students will come from many different countries. Antonio has lots of other interests too. He likes reading, writing, skating, comic books and poetry.  Antonio has worked in Thailand as a Spanish teacher and will be visiting family in Hong Kong after he has finished his time in Australia.

Learn English in Byron Bay. Lexis English students study General English, IELTS, FCE, CAE and English plus Surfing and Yoga in a friendly and professional school right in the heart of Byron Bay and only 15 minutes from the beach.
