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.

Christmas Card Making 🎄 December 18th

We decorated Christmas Cards today at Lexis Byron Bay and had Christmas music playing in the background while we worked away 🙂

It was quite the festive morning! 🎄

Materials we used were:

  • glitter
  • cardboard
  • glue
  • paper
  • stamps
  • ink

It was a lovely day to be outside. Though it got a little windy towards the end!

IMG_0874

Lucky we had Yuya to keep everything from flying away!

Above is some of the finished works for family and friends 🙂

While embellishing away we were practicing English skills and sharing our plans for Christmas!

SUNDAY MARKETS – Alice Beatrizotti & Bruna Andriolli

Flowers

Once a month in Byron Bay close to the beach there is a market where you can find whatever you want.

The prices are quite high, but you can be sure that the quality of the product is high as well. Silver earrings made by hand, ceramics cups for coffee, food from all over the world, organic fabric clothes, and so on.

MArkets

Every Saturday you can also find garage sales or people sitting on the street selling their second-hand clothes. If you are looking for a second-hand wetsuit, there you can find one for 5$!

Garage sale 2

Nobody is excluded in the Byron Bay community, everybody can do something useful and feel part of this big family.

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!

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.

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!

Ingredients used:

  • icing sugar
  • butter
  • water
  • cherries

Students were creative in what designs they made! Some examples were:

It was a messy and yummy morning!
