Our happy student this month is the wonderful fun-loving Johnny from Japan 😀 Johnny is always smiling and always keen to have a chat. He is the life and party at our student nights and I have been told he has some seriously impressive dance moves up his sleeve!
Why did you choose to come to Australia and to Lexis Byron Bay in particular?
I firstly saw Lexis Byron Bay blog and noticed there was only a few Japanese students and a nice mix of people from different countries. I have also heard great things about Byron Bay and its magic. I hope my dreams come true while I am here.
What do you remember about your first day in school?
The day I started there was only 2 other new students. I was very tired and a little bit nervous for my test, but it was okay in the end. It was a good memory.
What are your English goals and how is Lexis helping you achieve them?
I want to improve my English. Eventually I want to be a fluent native speaker and find a job where I speak English. In class we have a lot of time to speak with other students, which is very helpful.
What do you like most about your classes?
The conversations. Compared to when I studied in the USA, i find it a lot easier here.
You’ve joined many of our activities. What has been your favourite one so far?
I like the student parties and always hanging out with my friends.
Outside school, what is your favourite thing about Byron Bay?
Watching sunset and sunrise. The nightclubs and lots of socialising.. sometimes its crazy! 😀
What would you say to anyone thinking of coming to study at Lexis Byron Bay?
Lexis students are all very friendly. They are all happy to speak with you. It is important to talk to people from other countries, at Lexis there is a great mix of people from all over the world so it is always great practice.
