Make a Dream Catcher! December 4th

Students at Lexis Byron Bay tapped into their creative side making Dream Catchers this morning!

IMG_0484Materials we used were:

            • feathers
            • beads
            • sea shells
            • wool
            • twine
            • ribbon
            • metal wire

We had a fun time trying to translate the word ‘feather’ into Spanish and Italian 😋

All working hard weaving and creating!

Veronica and Lucia’s almost finished Dream Catchers.

In the end we ran out of time to completely finish, though it was enough for students to learn a new skill and complete their own Dream Catcher at home!

Coffee Club ☕ December 3rd

Students came purposely to practice their English!

Melissa: “I decided to come to coffee club today because I want to practice my English skills. It’s so easy to speak with other people from my own language, though I want to improve so that is why I came” 😊

IMG_0416

Melissa tried a TimTam for the first time today!

IMG_0418

Lucia tried a TimTam Slam for the first time today!

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
It is funny actually, I had a friend come here in May this year and recommended it to me. I’m so happy she did!

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Maybe I think I struggle with vocabulary. I would like to learn more words, different words.

My teacher is Paul and he is just the best! He and the class is always fun! I actually like to go to school 😊

IMG_0274

 

What was your favourite activity?
Oh! I think I liked jewellery making!

IMG_2391

Tell me about your accomodation/homestay…
Accomodation is okay. To me I think it is small, but it is okay 😋

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
There are so many things that I like to do in Byron! I like the town and having coffee in town. I like the bars in the nighttime and the fun atmosphere. I also like the surf at Tallows.

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
This happened yesterday! I was talking on facetime with my friend back home and all the people I was with knew her! They knew my friend! It’s a small world.

IMG_0926

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
What I like most is the people, and how the people all have real connections with each other.

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
Do it! Because I did and took someone elses advice. You can learn English and you can learn to surf. I think it’s just good to learn, and it is an easy place.

Sausage Sizzle! November 29th

Today we had a Sausage Sizzle for the Graduating Cambridge students 🙂
It was slightly windy, though otherwise perfect day for a great Aussie BBQ.

IMG_0364

On the menu was:

  • sausages
  • vegetarian sausages
  • cooked onion
  • BBQ sauce
  • tomato sauce
  • salad
  • chips

Marta and Alba helping themselves to the sausages.

Xenia waiting patiently in line.

We quickly ran out of bread, though there were more than enough sausages to go around!

Hope you all enjoyed the lunch!

Tie Dying Pt1! November 27th

We had messy fun this morning at Lexis Byron Bay because we did Tie Dyeing!

IMG_0309.JPG

 

This blog is Tie Dying Pt 1: The Process

We all made a huge mess!

IMG_0311

Each student had their own shirt.

IMG_0312

They then used elastic bands or string to tie patterns around their shirts.

IMG_0313

Everyone made sure to put on a pair of gloves!

IMG_0314

Next, we mixed up the paint mixtures and shook up the bottles.

IMG_0315

While we had ‘hippy music’ playing in the background they all got to work!

IMG_0316

Through laughter, you could hear shouts of “Picasso! Picasso!” exclamations of their work.

IMG_0317

Make sure to keep an eye open for Tie Dying Pt 2: The Final Product
