Didgeridoo Lesson! 20 September

Yesterday we had Craig, from Fifth Circle Music Therapy, come in to teach us the basics of playing the didgeridoo!

IMG_6419

We started with vibrating our lips into the didgeridoo, then practiced incorporating different sounds and rhythms with this.

The didgeridoo is a wooden instrument developed by indigenous Australians. Craig told us a bit about the history and origin of this instrument which has been used within aboriginal tribes for years.

Craig taught us how to the imitate the sounds of two of Australia’s native animals, the kangaroo and dingo; first practicing without, then through the didgeridoo. We had lots of fun howling like wolves and making the bouncing noises of the kangaroo!

Some of us were more natural didgeridoo players than others… teacher Adrienne’s technique was best described as ‘cat’s bum’.

This was a brilliant authentic and cultural experience for all of us and one we all thoroughly enjoyed!

Boomerang Painting! 22 February

Today we got creative with some Boomerang Painting!

We learnt a little bit about Aboriginal culture and art and then used this new knowledge to to paint our boomerangs!

We used examples of traditional Aboriginal art including the symbols for Australian animals and the method of dot painting.

It was a very relaxing and meditative way to spend an hour and everyone’s boomerangs looked amazing!

January Activity Calendar!

january-calendar-for-blog

After Christmas we have a short break before returning to school on Tuesday 3rd January. We have an exciting month of activities to kick off the start of the new year! These activities are run in both the morning and afternoon especially for our lucky Lexis students.

Every Monday you can stretch out and relax doing Yoga with Stef in the garden from 11-12 and with Fee in Room 8 from 2:15 to 3:15.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays we alternate the popular activity of Coffee Lounge, which gives students the chance to get to know each other while practicing English, with other fun activities. On the first Tuesday back we will have a BBQ to welcome all our new students, then on the following weeks we will enjoy learning to Skateboard with Flavio, Slackline with Olmo and we have an exciting BWT Travel Bonanza day with special deals and travel prizes to be won! We will finish off the month with the 1-hour Surf Lesson.

On Thursdays we start the month with a 1-hour Surf Lesson with the amazing team at Let’s Go Surfing Byron Bay. We have Job Club the following week to help any students looking to work while they are in Australia. Then there is Aussie Cooking where we will bake some yummy Anzac Biscuits. The last Thursday of the month is Australia Day, which is a public holiday so there will be no school on this day.

On Fridays we will be keeping active and heading to the beach as much as possible to enjoy the Summer in Byron Bay! To start the month we have the Table Tennis Tournament to find out who our new Lexis Champion is, then we have Volleyball and the very Aussie game of Cricket on the following weeks before finishing off the month with a Sandcastle Building Competition (with prizes to be won!).

GIL (Guided Individual Learning) runs every day from 12-1pm and 2-3pm in Room 8. Come along to get help with anything from homework to vocabulary to writing your resume.

He completed his apprenticeship as a Watch Maker but wants to follow a new career path when he returns, possibly working in the Luxury Car industry. He decided to learn English because it is an important language that is useful for discovering other countries and ways of life in the world.

Thomas is from Switzerland and is one of four in his family, including his parents and older sister. He loves playing tennis and football. After completing school he decided that he prefers manual labour over sitting at a desk so now works as a gardener. He chose to study English in Australia because it is a wonderful country and it’s a good excuse to get out of Switzerland for their Winter!

Larissa is from Brazil and lives in the city of Sao Paulo with her mother and brother. She is studying Biomedical Engineering at university and in the future hopes to continue her studies at a university with a more advanced course in this area. This is part  of the reason for her wanting to study English. She also chose to study in Australia because she has a cousin living in Sydney and she visited Australia herself when she was a young child but doesn’t remember much of that trip. She chose to live in Byron Bay to experience living in a small town with a calm, relaxing lifestyle and after just one day here so far, she already loves it!

Shirori is from Japan and is one of four in her family, with her mother, father and older brother. She loves yoga and hopes to one day be a yoga teacher. She decided to study English to help her reach this goal. She chose to study in Byron Bay because this area is well known for having a lot of different yoga classes and retreats to experience.

Coffee Lounge! December 13

Today we had a lovely relaxing Coffee Lounge. It is a hot day in Byron so we enjoyed the yummy TimTams and great conversation without the hot coffee today!

Even Tito awoke from his midday slumber just as the packet of TimTams was opened. (Coincidence??? I think not!).

Slacklining! December 9

Byron Bay has been hit with storm after incredible storm this week and today has turned out to be a bit rainy and overcast as a result.

img_1390

The weather did not deter the students from slacklining though!

img_1419

They were as keen as ever to get on the line and learn or keep practicing their balance.

Everyone did really well and the students who have been attending the slackline activity each month are improving each time!

A big thank you to Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution for coming by to teach us the skills of slacklining!

Table Tennis Tournament! December 8

Today we held the Table Tennis Tournament to find this month’s Lexis Champion!

We held two sessions, to allow both morning and afternoon students to be involved, so ended up with two champions for this month.

In the morning Roman held onto his title from last month…

…and in the afternoon Danny claimed the title!

The tournament could be renamed the Battle for the Beer, as that is the main motivating factor to win!

Paulo’s Homestay Experience

Paulo is from Germany and graduated from Lexis Byron Bay last week after seven weeks of studying English. During that time he lived in a homestay, which was a wonderfully positive experience for both him and the family he stayed with! After leaving, he sent this great photo collage to his homestay family to thank them for the experience and to share with future students staying with them. 🙂

Cider Tasting! December 1

Today we sampled some Australian ciders. It was a perfect activity for the hot weather on the first day of Summer!

img_1205

The ciders were brewed all over Australia, from the Adelaide Hills (The Hills Cider Company) to Sydney (5 Seeds) and a couple of local ones from Byron Bay (Treehouse Cider and Wild Cider).

img_1202

Everyone had a different favourite, which wasn’t surprising given the broad range of tastes and flavours in these ciders.

img_1201

From a dry, crisp apple to a sweeter pear and an infused flavour of native Finger Lime with apple, there was a cider for everyone!

Coffee Lounge! November 22

Today we had two lovely sessions of Coffee Lounge enjoying the coffee and conversation and, of course, the TimTams!

img_1086

In the morning we played a game where a student would describe an object, animal or place and the others would try to guess what it was. This helped the students practice their English both in speaking and listening, as well as exposing them to new words and using the language in a different way than usual.

In the afternoon we had a few different games going, after first trying to master drinking coffee through TimTams. The students love trying this very Australian way of drinking coffee, with some even making it a part of their morning ritual!

img_1091

After going through all the TimTams (so quickly!) we got into some games. We had riddles and brainteasers to keep our minds working hard for the hour to not only work out the answer, but to work it out in English!
Some examples of the riddles include:
1. What has a thumb and finger but is not alive?
2. What do you buy but not use, when you use it you don’t know it, and you only use it once?
3. What belongs to you but is used more by others?

Answers to the riddles are:
1. A glove.
2. A coffin.
3. Your name.

New Starters! November 21

Welcome to the four new students joining us at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_1082

Laura is from Colombia but has spent the past six years living in Germany. She is the youngest of her family and her parents, older brother and older sister all still live in Colombia. She loves sports, such as playing volleyball or watching soccer, and enjoys dancing to latin music including the salsa, merenge and bachata. She has just completed her undergraduate studies in Germany, in International Business with Event Management. She plans to start her Masters degree next year in Sport Event and Marketing Management in Berlin. She decided to study in Australia to improve her English to help her future studies and career. She also has a keen interest in other cultures and has always wanted to visit Australia to see the beautiful nature and beaches.

Marta is from Spain and lives on the island of Mallorca with her parents. She is an only child but has a lot of cousins in her extended family. Last year she completed her studies to become a teacher, with her final training taking place in Morocco. This was a life-changing experience for her and has inspired her to travel around the world helping children without easy access to education. She is planning to spend nine months in Australia and hopes to improve her English while meeting lots of people from all over the world and enjoying the beautiful environment of the country.

Kazuma is from Japan and is one of six in his family. He enjoys playing and watching sports, especially baseball, but is a bit disappointed that this is not played much in Australia! Instead, he is looking forward to learning how to surf and possibly making this his new favourite hobby. He decided to study at Lexis Byron Bay to improve his English because he wants to work as a nurse in Australia. For this he plans to study hard so that he can achieve a high score on the IELTS test. He also wants to be able to speak English well so he can communicate with others easily and enjoy his life here in Australia.

Sayuri is from Japan and is one of four in her family, including her mother, father and younger sister. She has been wanting to study English overseas for a while now so is very happy to be here! She likes swimming, walking, travelling and photography, and enjoys her annual trips to the beach with her family. She studied English for 12 weeks in the Philippines and, though she learnt a lot there, is now looking forward to building on that knowledge and improving her speaking and listening skills. She decided to study in Australia because she loves Summer, the sea and warm places, and because she wanted to experience living in another country.

Slacklining! November 18

Today we had Olmo from @slacklinebyronbaybalancerevolution come by to teach us how to slackline!

img_0966

This activity requires patience, relaxation and awareness of breath and body to master.

Some of the students had a bit of experience slacklining at previous Lexis sessions and others were total beginners. All of them had a lot of fun learning and practicing the skills that enabled them to find their balance on the slackline!

You can find Olmo at the Circus Arts Park&Fly down at Denning Park (opposite Main Beach) over the Summer months. 🙂
