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.

Top Ten Things to do in Byron Bay!

We all know Byron is a special place, and no matter how much time you have here you will most certainly be able to accomplish all of the things on this list.
The summer months are such a great time to be here, lots of tourists, busy streets, busy nights, and plenty of beaches!

Take a look at the top ten things you must do while in Byron Bay!

1. Byron’s Beaches

There are so many amazing beaches in and around Byron Bay with some hidden away from the general public. The central Byron beaches are fantastic if you don’t want to go too far. If you want to venture to some less known beaches take a look at our Byron Bay Beaches Blog

right_img_pass

2. Surf lessons

Our friends at Let’s Go Surfing are the best in the business so if you’re wanting to surf for the first time or if you’re a pro and just need a board then Let’s Go Surfing are for you. Lexis students receive a fantastic discounted rate for a two-hour lesson and there’s even a discount if you want to book more than one lesson. Come to reception and book or pop down and see them in person.

surf

3. Kayak with the Dolphins

You can pretty much guarantee that you will see dolphins when you kayak in the Bay of Byron. Just head to the Byron Bay Touring Co travel desk downstairs in the student lounge and they will give you a great deal for Kayaking with the Dolphins and any other adventures you might like to do!

Kayak

4. Hire a bike

One of the cheapest and best ways to get around Byron is by bike and there are plenty of bike trails that begin in the town centre which take you through local rainforests to the beach. Come to reception and you can get yourself a bike for just $2 a day. You can’t get any cheaper than that! 

Bike

5. Day trip to Nimbin

Nimbin is totally stuck in the ’60s. A unique village with a very hippy vibe! Jump on board and book a Happy Coach with Byron Bay Touring Co. You are guaranteed a great day out in the hinterland.

Nimbin

6. Local markets

Byron loves its markets and there’s always something for everyone also there are plenty of markets to explore in the Byron region. Some of the most regular markets are – Byron Bay Artisan Market (October to March, every Saturday night), Byron Bay Markets (first Sunday of every month) & Byron Bay Farmer’s Market (every Thursday morning).

markets

7. Snorkel or scuba dive at Julian Rocks

A protected reserve for the gentle-natured Grey Nurse Shark, Julian Rocks is also the perfect place to look out for Sea Turtles and around 500 species of fish! You can choose from an Intro Dive, a Certified Dive or a Snorkel tour.

Snorkeling

8. Visit Crystal Castle

If you want to feel a little more spiritual then head to Crystal Castle which is located in the hinterland behind Mullumbimby. With tranquil gardens, the world’s largest crystals, and a daily peace experience. You’ll leave Crystal Castle feeling calm and centred!

Crystal

9. A night out in Byron

Byron is small with a big town feel and it certainly has enough pubs, clubs, and bars for everyone. There’s live music on most nights of the week but the weekend is when it really heats up with local musicians playing in the streets. You only need to walk around to discover them for yourself!

night

10. Sunrise from Byron Bay Lighthouse

The Lighthouse walk is a must. Get up early to see the sunrise or take a picnic and watch the sunset! The Lighthouse sits on Australia’s most easterly point and the views are amazing! The walking trail from Byron Bay’s Main Beach to the Lighthouse will take you around 45 minutes each way. It’s also worth taking a detour down to Little Watagos beach.

Happy Student – Lucia 🌺

Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Lucia!

Tell us a little about yourself Lucia:
I’m from Spain. Before coming to Byron I worked on my family’s sheep farm. I always wanted to learn English because I like to travel and it is a universal language. I’ve been here almost 2 months and I have one more month left. Then I will travel along the coast of New South Wales before returning to Spain.

lucia.png

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
Because I don’t like I cities. I live in the countryside. That’s why I chose Byron Bay.

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Before coming to Australia, my weaknesses were listening and speaking English.

My teachers try to help me with listening and talk in class more often.

What was your favourite activity?
I think my favourite activity is the afternoon yoga classes, because you end the day relaxed.

Tell me about your accommodation/homestay…
I have lived in a hostel since I arrived and I think I will continue until I leave Byron.

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I like to walk around without tall buildings and without the noise of a city. I like to walk along the beach with few people. I also like to take walks to the lighthouse.

lucia2.png

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
My most magical moment in Byron… when I climb to see the sunrise at the lighthouse.

IMG_0048

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
What I liked most about this school is the small groups of students. It is good to have playful activities and games to assimilate the lessons.

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
My advice is to not think about it, to do it and enjoy it. It is an experience for a lifetime.

Byron Bay Beaches! ☀️

The days are getting hotter which means that it’s Summer! The days are also getting longer which means more time to spend at the beach!

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, with many different options for water sports, beach activities, exploring or just relaxing.

byron_bay_beach_map.gif

BELONGIL BEACH

Stretching to the north of Byron, Belongil Beach is one of the few dog-friendly beaches in the area. It has lovely views up the coast, tall sand dunes and a secluded feeling making it ideal for walking or relaxing. You can walk there from town via Main Beach and there’s a track to the Belongil cafes, including the Tree House which is a great venue for food, drinks and live music.

Belongil-Beach-scene

THE WRECK

To the left of the Main Beach car park, at the start of Belongil beach, is the Wreck. More of a surf break than a beach of its own, it’s named after the wreck of the SS Wollongbar, which sticks out of the water just beyond the waves. Mostly popular with surfers, there are no lifeguards and can get a little wilder than some of the other swimming beaches near town, but there’s often more space on the sand for beach games like cricket or soccer.

Surfing Late in to the Afternoon at the Wreck Byron Bay

MAIN BEACH

Just a short walk from the centre town, Main Beach is Byron’s most popular beach. With Julian Rocks visible on the horizon and the Byron lighthouse overlooking it from the headland, it’s Byron’s iconic beach spot. There are grassy hills behind the beach perfect for picnicking, as well as BBQs and other facilities. Lifeguards from the local surf club patrol the water so it’s a safe swimming beach.

byronbay-beach-1140x570

CLARKES

Clarkes is further down the sand from Main Beach, along the curve of the bay. Patrolled in the summer by lifeguards, it’s a safe place to swim that’s just past the heart of the town. It’s got a permanent beach volleyball net and rocky areas for snorkeling, plus there’s usually a bit more space on the sand to spread out or play beach games.

b35c0-s1446-843

THE PASS

Further along from Clarkes at the other end of the bay is The Pass. With views of Julian rocks, Main Beach, Belongil and the hinterland beyond, it’s one of the most picturesque spots in Byron Bay. It’s also a famous surf break renowned for its long waves, which can be ridden all the way to Clarkes when the conditions are right. It’s a beautiful walk along the sand from town and has a lookout that oversees the entire bay.

right_img_pass

WATEGOS

Nestled at the foot of the headland, around the corner from The Pass, is Wategos beach. Secluded in a beautiful forest bay of its own, it’s popular with surfers and swimmers alike. With waves wrapping around the headland that offer long, leisurely rides and plenty of shallow areas that are great for kids, Wategos is the epitome of a family beach. It’s also one of Byron’s best picnic spots because it’s in its element at dusk.

wategos

LITTLE WATEGOS

As the name suggests, Little Wategos is similar to Wategos beach but on a smaller scale. It’s just around the corner from Wategos and is easy to get to along the sand in low tide. When the water’s up high, it can be reached by a longer walk over the headland. Because of this dependence on the tides, it’s often unoccupied, making it feel like your own private beach.

LittleWatgeosPano

COSY CORNER

The other side of the headland is less protected than the bay. The beaches here get more wind and are often choppier, but they also usually have bigger waves. The first of these is Cosy Corner. It’s nestled at the bottom of the headland so it’s partially protected from the wind. With cleanly formed, decent sized waves, it’s a favourite among the local surfers.

Cosy-Corner-Byron-Bay

TALLOW BEACH

Further down from Cosy Corner on this side of the headland is Tallow Beach. With various breaks along it, there’s the potential to get a surfing spot all to yourself. It’s dog friendly and has views of the headlands further down the coast, so it’s also a nice beach for walking.

2.1292922151.tallow-beach

SUFFOLK BEACH

In the middle of the open stretch of sand to the south of Byron Bay is Suffolk Beach. A five-minute drive from town, it’s dog friendly, usually virtually empty and has stunning views of both Byron Bay and Broken Head. Long and unprotected, it’s often windier than the bay and has good surf breaks at various points along it.

Broken_Head_From_Tallow_Beach_October_2008.jpg

BROKEN HEAD

On the other end of the sand from the Cape Byron Headland is Broken Head beach. Protected by its own headland and surrounded by rainforest, it’s popular with both surfers and swimmers. A ten-minute drive from Byron, it has views of the lighthouse on its northern horizon and it’s quieter than the beaches closer to the town.

broken-head-holiday-park-300x199

KINGS BEACH

Just around the corner from Broken Head is the beautifully remote Kings beach. Although not officially a nude beach, it’s often treated as it is so beware if visiting with children. Kings is a little tricky to get to, but worth it once you’re there. It’s accessible by driving across the top of the headland along a gravel road, just off Broken Head’s main road. Once you reach the Kings car park, it’s a steep ten-minute walk down to beach.

BBI3428

WHITES BEACH

Further around the headland from Kings is the less well-known Whites beach. Reachable in the same way, its walking track is a little further along the gravel road. Nestled in the heart of the Broken Head rainforest, Whites is stunningly secluded and is one of the quietest beaches in the Byron area.

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!”

Happy Student – Xenia 🐬

Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Xenia!

Tell us a little about yourself Xenia:
I’m from Catalunya, from a little small village called Ventallo. I used to work as an early children’s teacher in different kindergartens, but I realised that first of all I want to travel the world. So I left my job and now I’m here in Lexis improving my English to become an English teacher.

Why Byron? I’m a music teacher.

7

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron because it is a small village like mine. I am also a music teacher and I heard that there is lots of music in Byron and thought “this must be my place!”

My friends back home also give me the nickname that translates into ‘Happy Fish’ in English. This is because I am always in the water back home.

8

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Well I did do English in highschool, and then I went to London as an Au Pair, but I decided that I want to know more people and to do that you need to know the language.

My teachers and my classes? It is perfect for learning. I have Paul as a teacher, and I find that his teaching is good and it is functional.

What was your favourite activity?
My favourite activity… I did like tie-dying! I want to do that again! The colours turned out a bit whack, but I would like to try again. Also, I want to try meditation and yoga. Living in Byron Bay makes me want to live healthier, eat healthier and be healthier.

Tell me about your accommodation/homestay…
I am currently living in a hostel, though am renting a house as of next week! I have liked staying at the hostel. There are many people there, and because of that when I go around Byron there is always a friendly face 😊

4

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I like to go for a picnic on the grass by Main Beach with friends. I do like to do that. The coolest thing here I think is the people I meet.

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
So far… my magical moment here in Byron… I walk along the beach at around 6am to see the sunrise. I never used to do that back home. I would actually like to sleep in! But there is something different here, I like the mornings.

2

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
I like the small classes, and I like the ‘English Only’ policy. It’s really good beacuse we stay talking all the time, so it becomes easy. It’s been good to practice speaking and listening.

6

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
If you are looking for a home place, Byron Bay is a good place to do it. I say don’t think about it and just do it. It’s an experience you will have for all of your life.

My weaknesses… what I found hard was grammar and current tenses. I want to improve so that I can speak well.

I really like my class and my teacher Michelle. She’s really nice, and she helps and explains well. I don’t want to change classes, even though I’m graduating soon and moving to an upper class I don’t want to because I like my current class.

I live in France, close to Bardeaux. I studied graphic design. I want to learn English to improve my English. I stayed 1 month in Byron Bay.

I chose to study in Byron Bay for the landscape. I didn’t want to stay in a city. I liked the ambience and the music in Byron.

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
My weakness was especially to speak, and sometimes to understand others when they talk. I had a good class, and my teacher Michelle was very good to me. She was very patient and very calm with me.

IMG_8854

What was your favourite activity?
I did a few of the activities! My favourite was pilates!

IMG_8835.JPG

Tell me about your accomodation/homestay…
My host family was amazing! I stayed in Suffolk Park and I would ride my bike to school. My host was a very good cook, and would cook for me very well. Every dinner would be different and amazing! They also introduced me to Milo.

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I like to walk to the lighthouse.

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
There was a magical moment for me when I was at Broken Head Beach, just down from Suffolk Park… and wow, I don’t know how else to describe… but it was magical. The sand was so white, and the ocean so blue… magical.

1.jpg

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
The environment of the school, like the atmosphere of it. It was nice.

IMG_0145

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
Talk with people from different backgrounds and different nationalities! Everybody is different and has their own language, and I think it is important to speak with different people to improve.

Jewellery Making 📿 November 14th

Jewellery Making proved to be very popular today at Lexis English Byron Bay!

IMG_8984

Most of us seemed to channel our ‘inner Summer camp child’ 😁

IMG_8992

What was used:

  • thread
  • shells
  • wooden beads
  • plastic beads
  • rocks
  • crystals
  • pendants

We helped each other design beautiful creations!

After we completed our pieces many laughed because they could buy similar jewellery in town for at least $10!

The final designs were a mixture of:

  • bracelets
  • anklets
  • necklaces

Thanks everyone who joined in today!

Nearing the beginning of Summer, it’s a hot start to the morning for our Coffee Club here at Lexis Byron Bay!

Discussions were had about the fires surrounding Byron Bay and NSW, and just how hot it is already even though it’s still Spring! This naturally led to conversations about how it’s currently Autumn/ Fall in the Northern Hemisphere where many of the students are from.

Inbetween topics of conversations Tim-Tams were had! They were good even once they started to melt 😋
