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.

WHITES BEACH – Gabriel M Pacheco

I went to Whites Beach in Byron Bay a few weeks ago, and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.

I was with 3 friends of mine, with one surfboard and it was such a beautiful day. We parked the car at Broken Heads and took the trail to the beach.

The day was clean and the water was beautiful, the surf was good, and the beach was deserted.

 The beaches in Byron are already beautiful but this one was stunning!

We drank some beers and surfed a bit, it was one of the best days of my trip here in Australia.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes beaches with fewer people than the famous one for example.

Take some beers with you and have a beautiful day!

The Environment – Adrienne’s Native Speaker Class!

This week in Adrienne’s Native Speaker class the topic was the environment. Students discussed what they thought the most discerning issue for them was and the general consensus was plastics.
As part of this class, the students went off campus and collected as much rubbish as they could. Some walked to the beach and others walked to the soccer fields. All together the students collected 6 large bags of rubbish!
What a success!

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.

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.

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

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!

Market Day with Kristy’s Upper-Intermediate class! December 12th

Off to the market!  A magic bus, amazing students, smiles on dials and a bit of spare change in the pocket: what more do we need?  Oh, that’s right, a perfectly sunshiny Byron Bay day 🙂

Have a read of the reviews written by our awesome Upper Intermediate class:

Epic Market Day
We were at the market today and we took a cool bus. It was like a 10-minute ride and I enjoyed the view from the top deck.
There were different kinds of market stalls where you could buy fresh vegetables and fruit as well as different dips and juices.
During the whole market, two musicians were playing music. The sun shone upon our heads and after a while, we looked for protection under a tent, where we ate the delicious food we bought.
In conclusion, the morning was well spent and we really recommend the market if you like fresh and delicious food! – Celine and Dario

Today we went to the farmers market with our English class. We took a beautiful flowery bus that cost two dollars.
It was a nice place to have a good coffee and the best muffins around Byron Bay. Furthermore, we can find the best fresh vegetables and flowers.
Then, after having walked around the entire market, we spoke with a German girl who sells vegetables and fruits. She was really friendly and happy to speak to us.
Finally, we recommend taking a hat because it was really hot! – Maria Laura

Farmers Market
We have just taken a really nice bus to go to the market. Our teacher told us that the bus will be free but in the end we had to pay 2 dollars.
We were on the bus for 10 minutes and then we arrived at the markets. There were a lot of food stalls.
First we bought an escargot from a bakery and a smoothie from a juice stall. It tasted very good. Then we walked past the stalls. We tried some dips with chips and fruit. We had a nice conversation with the woman at the passionfruit stall. She explained the difference between the cheaper passionfruits and the expensive ones. The passionfruit which were cheap weren’t so good looking.
Then we talked to the man at the dip stall. We talked about the tasty pesto dip and then we were listening to the live musicians and gave them some money because the music was beautiful. We hope they will be famous soon!
The time passed very fast because the market was amazing. Then we had to take the same bus to go back to school and now we are sitting in our classroom and have to write this blog. – Christian and Lya

IMG_9143

Today we went to the Byron Bay Farmers Market. The colourful bus took us right there which was very useful.
At the market, we experienced a very good atmosphere and a farmer even gave us some bananas for free.
There were a lot of things to see and try. our favourite was the fresh-pressed sugar cane juice with passionfruit and lime.
We saw all kinds of people, young people, old people, but no dogs as they are not allowed in the market.
We have a good message for everybody who spent too much money at the market, there is an ATM on the spot!
The farmers really seemed to enjoy their job which inspired us.
After these good experiences, we went back to school with the same bus and a big bag of passionfruits. – Kazuya and Mathieu
