Happy Student – Monica

Monica has been a student at Lexis Byron Bay for just over 3 months. In this time she has continued to shine! Monica is always warm and patient with new students and brings out the best in everyone around her. She has made many strong friendships during her time here and we will all miss her when she leaves us at the end of this week. Everyone that knows Monica, knows how truly kind and selfless she is.

We asked her a few questions for our ‘Happy Students Blog’ to get to know her even better:


Where are you from?

I’m from Garopaba. It’s a small town in the South of Brazil.

Why did you come to Australia?

I came to Australia because I have friends here and the country’s wealth is quite similar to Brazil. I choose Byron Bay because it’s a small town, like my home town in Brazil and I feel at home here.


What is your favourite thing about Byron Bay?

I love Byron Bay and I don’t know if I can choose just one thing. I’m so lucky because I had a lot of good friends here and also I have made many good friends.

Is your English Improving?

Yes, for sure! When I arrived here I couldn’t speak well, but now I feel much more confident. 


What would you say to someone who is considering studying at Lexis Byron Bay?

You must go to Lexis Byron Bay, it is a great opportunity to learn English and make friends from many countries.


What are your plans after you finish studying at Lexis?

I’m going to Thailand to learn about Thai Massage and then I’ll go back to Brazil..


It has been a delight having you as a student Monica and I can’t thank you enough for all the laughs and good times you have brought to our activities!
