Clemente is from Chile. He comes from an amazing family and has an awesome relationship with his six brothers. He is currently studying business at the University of Chile. Since he was a small chile he has been practicing soccer and also loves to skate and surf. He wants to study English in Australia so he can improve his grammar and when he returns to Chile he will hopefully find a job where he can apply his English.

Ines is from Spain. Before coming to Australia she worked as a pre-school teacher as well as going to university. She will return to university next year to study psychology. Ines has always wanted to visit Australia as it was her dream destination and she thought it would be the best place to learn English. Her hobbies include going to the gym and meeting her friends.

Patrick is from Switzerland. He likes to run, surf, and snowboard. Back home he meets with friends every two weeks and they play different sports like workout circuits, athletics, and running. He studied to be an electrician for 3 years and now he works for a security firm where they make fire, video, and security systems. He programs and installs the systems for clients. He is in Australia to study English especially his vocabulary.

Paula is from Spain. She loves her family and has a special bond with her mother. The family loves to spend time together and make amazing food. She also loves to do sports especially tennis which she will play while here in Australia. Paula studied to be a sports teacher and has been working for a year in a school but realised that she wanted to travel. She is in Australia to study English but is also very excited about seeing this beautiful country.

Florence is from Switzerland. She’s had lots of experience in the travel and tourism industry. She was always fascinated about getting to know other cultures and dreamt of foreign places. She then fell in love with surfing and the game changed. Florence spent the next 6 months in Portugal and enjoyed spending most days at the beach. She’s also a big fan of swimming, a passion she shares with her sister.

Happy Student – Amin 🏄‍♂️

Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Amin!

amin 2

Tell us a little about yourself Amin:
I am from Switerland and I live in Zuerich. I worked as a software engineer for the Swiss television. I decided to go to Byron Bay because I heard many good things about it and thought it would be a nice start for my trip. I stayed in Byron for six weeks.

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron Bay because I heard good things about it. I had a friend come here maybe six years ago and told me about it. So I did my research and I decided that it had the right mood for me.

Amin 5

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
I  think my weaknessess… I think grammar… and the speaking and the fluency.

I was with Claudia as my teacher, and I think the class was the right fit for me. It was my right level. And I liked the class because there were people there from other nationalities. I also liked the activties that we did in the class like the markets, having coffee and Secret Santa… yeah, it was fun.

What was your favourite activity?
I liked the Beer Testing! Haha, that was fun! But I did like the Coffee Club too. You know, it was nice to play games and get to know other people and get to know them better.

 

Tell me about your accommodation/homestay…
I stayed at the accommodation downstairs (onsite) and I liked it. The room is good, it has nice people and a good kitchen to cook meals in. I really liked the communal tables- there were always people to be with if you wanted! Yeah, I really enjoyed it 🙂

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
Surfing! I only started surfing here and I like it! I first had lessons through the school… maybe four lessons, then I bought a board and have met some friends and go surfing with them everyday! I might have to resell the board when I leave, but if I can fit it in my car I will take it on my travels with me in Australia!

I also really like the nightlife and the mood here in Byron Bay. Like the muscians and the buskers. It’s just nice to be out at night.

Amin 3

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
Oh, this is a tough one… so many… I suppose, I think surfing at sunset at Tallows Beach. We saw dolphins and then they were swimming past us… yes, this was the most magical moment.

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
I like the people here. The students and the employees. The people are really helpful. Whenever I had a question I would go to reception and they would help me straight away. Also the mood for a school is good.

Amin 4

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
My advice… stay at the accomodation onsite because it is close to the school and you get to meet more people! But then I guess it depends on the person… I also suggest to plan a trip early, but also at the same time to be spontaneous too.

Indoor Picnic and Wii! December 13th

Today we unfortunately had to cancel the Beach Picnic due to the weather! As sad as it was to cancel this mornings activity, it was a much needed respite to have rain in Byron Bay ⛈️

However we did have an Indoor Picnic instead!

Not many people showed up because of the rain, though a student who was walking past came inside for a little snack 😋

IMG_0728

He was the instigator that lured others to join in!

Soon enough a class had turned up 🙈

Thankfully their teacher was understanding and for a few short minutes used this time as part of a lesson!

Today didn’t turn out as expected, nevertheless we still had fun!

Christmas Traditions: History of Cookie Decorating 🎄🍪

 History of Cookie Decorating 🎄🍪

Have you ever stopped to wonder why we do certain Christmas Traditions? Did you know that Cookie decorating dates back to at least the 14th century in Switzerland? Springerle cookie molds were carved from wood and used to impress Biblical designs into cookies. One of the earliest recorded forms of cookie decorating is the springerle, and the oldest known springerle mold is housed at the Swiss national museum in Zurich, Switzerland.

220px-Springerle_with_typical_foot_swabian_Fuessle.jpg

The artistic element of cookie making also can be traced back to Medieval Germany.

250px-Lebkuchenscan.jpg

Lebkuchen was crafted into fancy shapes and decorated with sugar. Lebkuchen is a traditional German baked Christmas cookie, somewhat resembling gingerbread.

220px-Motlle_crespellines

During the 17th century, Dutch and German settlers introduced cookie cutters, decorative molds, and festive holiday cookie decorations to the United States.

220px-Christmas_sugar_cookies,_January_2010.jpg

Today cookie decorating traditions continue in many places in the world and include such activities as cookie decorating parties, competitions, creating cookie bouquets and cookie gift baskets, and simply decorating cookies with others can be a fun activity.

Join us at Lexis Byron Bay this Thursday the 11th of December at 11.30am or 2pm for our own version of Christmas Cookie Decorating!

Make sure to sign up at reception!

Christmas in Byron Bay 🎄

Christmas in Byron Bay can be hard for students to get their head around.

Fotolia_33593365_M-915x485.jpg

It’s been said around the campus “but it doesn’t feel like Christmas! It’s too hot!” or similarly “there’s no snow, and not many people have lights up!”

surfing-santa

For a few of the students from colder climates in the Northern Hemisphere the idea of no snow, or a hot Christmas is unheard of!

Christmas-heatwave-960x540.jpg

Much like everything else, Aussie’s just do Christmas differently.

shutterstock_336457160.jpg

For Christmas lunch or dinner many will have a traditional roast, though additionally the barbie will be fired up! Prawns are very popular to have in the Summer time. It’s also not uncommen to find the men around the BBQ, women in the kitchen getting everything else ready, and chilren playing under a sprinkler or swimming in a pool.

5cd38d512300005700b7dc44.jpeg

And for dessert we have pavlova with fruit on top. Sometimes in the shape of a Christmas Wreath. Christmas Pudding will still be feautured, though because it is Summer the fruits are a favoured choice.

1481587904397_PavlovaChristmasWreath.jpg

Then in the afternoon if you’re not napping and sleeping off your Christmas lunch, you might play a game of beach/ backyard cricket! It might be children vs. adults, cousins vs. ‘the other’ cousins, or boys vs. girls. It’s all about having fun, being silly and not taking it all too seriously.

Beach-Backyard-Cricket.jpg

It can be an unusual adjustment, though Christmas in Australia can still be enjoyed! Spend time with friends, and create your own traditions. Swim at the beach, play cricket in the backyard, and revel in the fact that you’re in a t-shirt! Make memories that will last that can be shared back home and one day you can say “I had a Christmas at the beach one year!”

New starters! November 25th

We have 15 new students starting at Lexis Byron Bay this week. Hello and welcome!

IMG_2603.JPG

Dario is from Switzerland. He has come to Lexis Byron Bay because he feels it’s the best way to learn about Australian culture and people while learning English. He served in the military before coming here and is hoping to learn about himself and decide what he would like to do for work when he returns to Switzerland. Dario will backpack around Australia for 2 months when he finishes his studies!

Eglantine is from Belgium. She loves to play the guitar and scouting. She started scouting when she was 7 years old and it’s still her favourite activity. Before coming to Lexis Byron Bay she was at another school in Melbourne, where she met a lot of amazing people. She is hoping the travel and English studies will better herself for the future.

Alba is from Spain. She lives with her parents and two siblings. Her interests are sports and travel but she also loves to cook new recipes that she finds on the internet. Alba needed a break in her life and decided Australia was the perfect place. English is a very important language that she wants to improve so she can grow and open her mind.

Yuya is from Japan. He studies tourism at university so he can be a tour guide. He wants to improve his English skills so he can communicate with tourists. He is hoping to work abroad and will continue to learn English until then. Yuya has two reasons for studying English in Australia; he wants to be able to speak to everyone and he loves nature! He also would like to learn to surf.

Youngmin is from Korea. He lives with his parents in Daegu while his sister lives in Seoul. He was studying at university but got called in to do military service where he served for 20 months. He finished 2 weeks before coming to Australia. He plans to study at Lexis for 2 -3 months then go back to Korea to finish his studies at university.

Marco is from Italy. His hobbies are surfing, snowboarding, and skating. He studied English in Italy but wanted to continue his studies in Australia. He works as chef in Palermo fro 3 years. He would like to open a traditional Italian restaurant in the future.

Martin is from Spain. He wants to study English in Australia and experience the culture and travel around. He likes how Australian people speak! In Spain, he works in a bar as a waiter and his hobbies include trekking and paddleboarding.

Daniel is from Brazil. He lives with his sisters in Rio De Janeiro. His dad is an amazing guy and taught him everything he knows. Surfing is his passion and he sells photos and videos of the surf that he produces himself. He hopes to work making films and documentaries about surfing in the future. His dream was to come to Australia.

Bernat is from Spain. His interests are motorbikes, cycling, and surfing. He works as a cleaner, gardener, cook, and in construction. He plans to study and work for 7 months and hopefully, during that time he will travel and be able to surf every day.

Nanae is from Japan. She is crazy about natural and organic everything! When in a new town or city, the first thing she does is find the organic stores. She previously worked in an organic, herb, and aroma shop. She worked there for a year and loved it! Nanae came to Byron Bay to learn yoga because Byron Bay is famous for yoga, being organic, and free mindedness.

Maria is from Spain. She grew up in a small village called Olivare with her parents, her older brother, and her younger sister. She has been playing volleyball since she was 15 but had to quit last year because she moved to Barcelona where she works as cabin crew. She studied audiovisual communication and also worked as a sports photographer. She is here to improve her English so she can get a good job when she returns to Spain.

Yumana is from Switzerland. She lives with her father who is Swiss and her mother who is Japanese. She loves singing and music and also likes to spend time with her friends and swim at the beach. She decided to take a gap year from university where she studies social science. Yumana wanted to come to Australia because many people had told her that the atmosphere is good and that the people are very nice. She will spend 3 months in Australia then go to Senegal for work.

Eva is from Spain. She works at a restaurant in a hotel on the island of Ibiza where she is a waitress, bartender, and barista. It is better for her job that she speaks English as most people that visit the hotel are international tourists. Eva will spend the next 12 weeks studying English at Lexis Byron Bay.

Fabian is from Switzerland. He lives with his parents in Zurich which is the German part of Switzerland. He likes to do a lot of sport and in winter he goes skiing and snowboarding. The rest of the year he does athletics and volleyball. He also likes reading about history. He studied electrical engineering and works as an electrician. After his studies in Australia, he is hoping to find a job as an electrical engineer and needs English as most companies are international.

Lena is from Germany. She lives on her own in her grandparent’s house but spends a lot of time with her family. Her mother is a yoga teacher and goes to her classes every week. She has built an occupational health and safety company with her father. They check workspaces for companies to see if they are safe work environments.  She wanted to study English in Australia because she wanted to see a beautiful country and meet lots of locals but also because of the weather and beaches.

Talented Chef/Cook Required

Byron Bay, NSW

Elixiba Restaurant and Bar has quickly become a hot destination on the Byron Bay foodie scene. In the past four years, we have won numerous awards and been recognised time and again for our ingenuity and “ahead of the curve” way of doing things.

Located in central Byron Bay, our beautiful venue holds an unmatched opportunity for the right candidate:

We don’t usually like to brag, but have no qualms doing so when it comes to our staff: we really do have the best team ever. The only thing missing is a talented, passionate cook or chef who is looking to step into a kitchen manager role.

What we offer:

  • 38 hours a week, with no unpaid overtime expected
  • A great, positive work environment. Our team is hard working and respectful, holds a no-bullying policy, and unflinchingly supports one another through everything.
  • Work/lifestyle balance! We believe that staff members work the best when they are not being overworked and undervalued. At least two days off in a row each week, and a flexible roster.
  • Career progression and professional development. Our current kitchen management team holds a combined twenty years of cooking experience, so there is a lot to learn from us. We are one of the only restaurants in Australia with a focus on plant based, allergen friendly, sustainable cooking (and as anyone who has had a meal with us will tell you, our food is anything but boring). With plans to expand in the future, this role has a strong potential to lead to a head chef position in the future.

The right candidate’s profile would be…

  • Experience in a similar role (2 years preferred)
  • Cheffing qualification a bonus, but not required if you have adequate cooking experience
  • Ability to co-lead our kitchen team and serve as a role model for our staff
  • Love for healthy living and a respect for the plant based diet
  • Hunger for learning
  • Able to work nights and hold energy levels (3-5 a week, almost always out by 10PM) as well as available on weekends.
  • Respectful, calm, kind individual (we don’t have time for disrespect, unnecessary stress-outs or negativity)
  • Wants to stay with the company long term (must commit to at least one year)

This opportunity is almost unheard of in the cooking world, so we’re expecting to hire someone who’s equally amazing! Someone with ridiculous talent, work ethic and goals! If that’s you, then what are you waiting for?
