Clemente is from Chile. He comes from an amazing family and has an awesome relationship with his six brothers. He is currently studying business at the University of Chile. Since he was a small chile he has been practicing soccer and also loves to skate and surf. He wants to study English in Australia so he can improve his grammar and when he returns to Chile he will hopefully find a job where he can apply his English.

Ines is from Spain. Before coming to Australia she worked as a pre-school teacher as well as going to university. She will return to university next year to study psychology. Ines has always wanted to visit Australia as it was her dream destination and she thought it would be the best place to learn English. Her hobbies include going to the gym and meeting her friends.

Patrick is from Switzerland. He likes to run, surf, and snowboard. Back home he meets with friends every two weeks and they play different sports like workout circuits, athletics, and running. He studied to be an electrician for 3 years and now he works for a security firm where they make fire, video, and security systems. He programs and installs the systems for clients. He is in Australia to study English especially his vocabulary.

Paula is from Spain. She loves her family and has a special bond with her mother. The family loves to spend time together and make amazing food. She also loves to do sports especially tennis which she will play while here in Australia. 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!

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.

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!

IMG_0726

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

Christmas Traditions: History of the Christmas Tree 🎄

History of the Christmas Tree 🎄

Have you ever stopped to wonder why we do certain Christmas Traditions? Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter.

IMG_0618

In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles, which were ultimately replaced by Christmas lights.

Today, there is a wide variety of traditional ornaments, such as garlands, baubles, tinsel, and candy canes.

An angel or star might be placed at the top of the tree to represent the Angel Gabriel or the Star of Bethlehem, respectively, from the Nativity.

Modern Christmas trees have been related to the “tree of paradise” of medieval mystery plays that were given on 24 December, the commemoration and of Adam and Eve in various countries. In such plays, a tree decorated with apples (to represent the forbidden fruit) and wafers (to represent the Eucharist and redemption) was used as a setting for the play. Like the Christmas crib, the Paradise tree was later placed in homes. The apples were replaced by round objects such as shiny red balls.

 

When you’re in the office next at Lexis Byron Bay make sure to check out our own little Christmas Tree!

Christmas Traditions: History of Cookie Decorating 🎄🍪

 History of Cookie Decorating 🎄🍪

Have you ever stopped to wonder why we do certain Christmas Traditions? Did you know that Cookie decorating dates back to at least the 14th century in Switzerland? Springerle cookie molds were carved from wood and used to impress Biblical designs into cookies. One of the earliest recorded forms of cookie decorating is the springerle, and the oldest known springerle mold is housed at the Swiss national museum in Zurich, Switzerland.

220px-Springerle_with_typical_foot_swabian_Fuessle.jpg

The artistic element of cookie making also can be traced back to Medieval Germany.

250px-Lebkuchenscan.jpg

Lebkuchen was crafted into fancy shapes and decorated with sugar. Lebkuchen is a traditional German baked Christmas cookie, somewhat resembling gingerbread.

220px-Motlle_crespellines

During the 17th century, Dutch and German settlers introduced cookie cutters, decorative molds, and festive holiday cookie decorations to the United States.

220px-Christmas_sugar_cookies,_January_2010.jpg

Today cookie decorating traditions continue in many places in the world and include such activities as cookie decorating parties, competitions, creating cookie bouquets and cookie gift baskets, and simply decorating cookies with others can be a fun activity.

Join us at Lexis Byron Bay this Thursday the 11th of December at 11.30am or 2pm for our own version of Christmas Cookie Decorating!

Make sure to sign up at reception!

Wine & Cheese Tasting 🍷🧀 December 6th

It was a hot Summer afternoon at Lexis Byron Bay, but that didn’t stop students from attending the Wine & Cheese Tasting!

img_0519.jpgIMG_0518

We had 5 varieties of wine: merlot, shiraz, rose, moscato and sauvignon blanc.

There was also an assortment of hard and soft cheeses and flavours:

          • brie
          • peppercorn
          • cheddar
          • camembert
          • gouda
          • chives and onion
          • apricot

When the Swiss were asked what their favourite cheese was they exclaimed
“we’re Swiss! We love ALL cheese!”

IMG_0525

When Rosa was asked what her favourite wine was she giggled
“Rose! Because it is my name!”

It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends.

A casual and fun environment to speak in English and laugh!

Good memories are made at activities like these 🙂

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 😊

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.

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.

Make a Dream Catcher – Round Two! December 4th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Making a Dream Catcher!

It was a nice balmy afternoon so we thought it best to use the communal tables outside and with so many students it was perfect!

We used a woven wire to create our hoop. Then we wrapped the hoops with either wool or twine.

The next step was to start creating the inside web. Most students used different coloured wool or twine and we followed a step by step instruction sheet to help us.

This was the most difficult step but everyone got there in the end.

IMG_2737

IMG_2748Most students ran out of time to finish adding feathers and beads but they were left well stocked so they could finish in their own time!
