Coffee Club ☕ November 12th

Nearing the beggining 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 😋

My English learning tip is…speak, speak, speak, you take your mouths, not your grammar books to the pub. Being able to have a conversation with locals will really enhance your Byron experience.
