HOW MANY LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK?

Fluently, just English – followed by Irish (dia dhuit! / hello!) and then French. I also know a little Polish (my sister-in-law from Poland). I really want to learn Spanish!

I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE…?

An artist and musician. (One out of two ain’t bad!) I was surrounded by art and music as a kid so have always had a great appreciation of both.

 

WHEN YOU ARE IN BYRON BAY, DON’T MISS OUT…

On all the amazing buskers around town, the drum circle by the beach at sunset and the amazing markets!

 

I’LL BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW…

My amazing Gran is 100 years old! (See photo of us on the day she officially turned 100 last May. We had a huge party to celebrate in Galway, Ireland).

HAVE YOU EVER LIVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

I’m from Ireland and now living in Australia!

 

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINATION?

Somewhere with amazing beaches, delicious and healthy food, yoga, inspiring places to explore – I was recently in Indonesia, it was heavenly.

  

WHAT IS YOUR ENGLISH LEARNING TIP?

Talking! Make friends who speak English, listen to the radio, watch movies, join different social groups, listen!

 

 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.
