Wine Tasting! January 25th

img_0907

What better way to kick of the long Australia Day weekend than with some wine tasting in the garden! It was a beautiful sunny day – the perfect backdrop to our Friday activity. We had a range of wines to choose from – the reds: Merlot & Shiraz, the whites: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Muscato and also a Rose.

 

img_0914.jpg

In an effort to be mindful of our environment and plastic waste, we collected all cups after the tasting, to be washed and refreshed for future tastings 😉

Everyone enjoyed the wines but the clear favourites seemed to be the Shiraz and the sweet Muscato!

 

img_0923.jpg

Saying ‘cheers’ in 4 different languages! 😀

January has been a great month for activities with a great variety of fun things like surfing, Mexican & Brazilian cooking, table tennis and of course, wine tasting. For our final week in January we have a beach picnic and jewellery making still to come! Keep an eye on our blog this week for our list of amazing activities for the month of February! 🙂

img_0823

The students were having too much fun getting ready to go into the water that by time they’d sun-creamed up, I’d taken some photos and Lara had thrown some sand around, it was time for me to head back to school!

I managed to get one quick shot of them in the water before leaving them in the safety of the lifeguard zone. I can imagine there was just as much laughter in the water as there was out of it though 🙂

Happy Student – Nicol!

Nicol is 21 and comes to us from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. She started with us last October and will be studying with us until the start of February this year. After her time with us in Lexis, she is going to travel further along the East Coast with friends before she returns home.

20190120_113038.jpg

Nicol enjoying some east coast adventures last weekend!

1. Why did you choose to come to Australia and to Lexis Byron Bay in particular?

I chose to come to Byron because since I was a child, I always dreamed about the Australian life – the beach, the surf… and Byron is the perfect place to realise this dream!

img_9588.jpg

2. What do you remember about your first day in school?

I remember that I was so happy to start here! Everybody was so friendly and everything was so well organised. My last school was too big – here is more personal as everybody knows you and your name 🙂

img_8034

First day of school! 🙂

3. What are your English goals and how is Lexis helping you achieve them?

My goal is to reach a good level of English for work and travels. I think that Lexis is a really good school – every week we are tested to check our progress levels and the teachers really help us and push us towards these goals.

4. What do you like about your classes? 

I love the variety! We are not always in the classroom – sometimes we have lessons to do outdoors!

img_9042.jpg

 

5. You’ve joined many of our free activities. What has been your favourite one so far?

The school organises a lot of activities and since the beginning, I have really enjoyed doing morning yoga every week. The other activities are always loads of fun – I really loved the craft ones, especially making dream catchers. The take-home pieces are great for remembering our time in Lexis!

img_9512

6. Outside school, what is your favourite thing about Byron Bay? 

I love Byron for the lifestyle, the music on the streets, the amazing beach, the public BBQ (which I used every day when my family was visiting in January!). I love that it is a small place but there is always something to do.

img-20190103-wa0011

7. What would you say to anyone thinking of coming to study at Lexis Byron Bay?

Absolutely come to Byron!! If you are looking for a chilled and amazing place, this is the place!! 🙂

Mexican Cooking! 17 January PM

Yesterday afternoon we headed to the kitchen for some Mexican Cooking!! We had two recipes (one meat and one vegetarian), so everybody had a job to do, whether it was chopping the vegetables or cooking the mince.

For our meat dish we had beef tacos and for our vegetarians we had enchiladas filled with beans, veg and salsa sauce (Vanessa also adapted this to a vegan option by not covering it in cheese!).

What everyone was most excited for though was the cheesy nachos! Nicol had the task of covering the corn chips in cheese then popping them in microwave, and had everyone jumping on her as soon as they were ready!

The nachos kept us going whilst the enchiladas baked in the oven and we filled the tacos with our beef and veg mix.

There was plenty of food to fill our bellies and even some left over mince we’re going to have for lunch today!

Mexican Cooking! (morning) January 17

Yesterday morning (Thursday) we gathered in the kitchen for our Mexican cooking activity! Our plan was to have a meat AND a veggie option – beef tacos and veggie enchiladas. Our main ingredients included beef, red peppers & onions, lettuce, mixed beans, re-fried beans, sour cream, various sauces, lime, cheese, taco shells, tortillas and of course – some corn chips and salsa to snack on as we cooked 😀

img_0387

As we were cooking two separate mixes, there were plenty of jobs for everyone to do – prep and chop the vegetables, divide the ingredients for each meal, find the chopping boards, pots, pans and the fun bit – the cooking! 🙂

As the onion tears were starting to get to us, one of the group had a genius idea to help her… sunglasses!!! 😀

 

Some shots of the cooking in progress…

Looking good, chef Max! 🙂

 

The food was so tasty – it’s not at all surprising that a few friends turned up just as the food was ready to eat…! 😛

 

What exciting activities are lined up for next week?

Boomerang painting! January 10th

Last week, we gathered outside the student lounge for our Thursday activity – Boomerang painting! 🙂

img_0251

The sun was shining here in Byron Bay so we set up the tables outside, making sure to cover everything in newspaper as we were using acrylic paint. I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

Everyone found the painting to be a very relaxing activity! Check them out as they worked on their masterpieces 😀

 

Some details of the work in progress…
