All students will study for 30 weeks at our Byron Bay campus. It’s a great time of year to be studying and living in Byron Bay.

Aki is from Japan.

Solomon is from England

 Selena is from Italy.

Cristina is from Spain

Giovana is from Brazil.

The course is suitable for both native and non-native speakers and is CRICOS registered, which means that student visa applicants are welcomed.

It is designed for trainees who are seeking to gain an understanding of business fundamentals and who may be interested in gaining employment at a mid-level administrative or customer service role.

It is taught wholly in English, thus providing the opportunity for ex-Lexis students to continue to develop their knowledge and application of the language, while also learning some highly valuable business skills and vocabulary.

Richard and Vanessa

Richard and Vanessa are from Brazil and travelled to Australia together to study at Lexis Byron Bay. They have been here for nine weeks now and are enrolled to study with us for a total of 24 weeks. They then hope to extend their stay by continuing their studies at Lexis with a Business course later in the year.

Richard has always dreamt of living in a different country and experiencing a different culture. When the two of them realised the importance of learning English to further their careers, they decided to study English in Australia. In Brazil, having a higher level of English often means better opportunities for jobs.

First day at school – Richard and Vanessa starting with five other new students

Both Vanessa and Richard are enjoying their time in Byron Bay. For Vanessa, one of her favourite parts of living here are the beautiful beaches. She said that even if you go to the same beach every day, each day is completely different – whether it be the water, the sky, or the sunset, it is a different place every day. She finds the beaches here very peaceful. She also loves the night sky in Byron Bay, with so many stars that can be seen so clearly, it is a beautiful night view. Richard is a big fan of the famous Byron Bay Lighthouse. He enjoys the walk through the National Park area, which always delivers close encounters with the local wildlife including wallabies, rabbits, whales, dolphins, parrots, bush turkeys, lizards and turtles.  Richard has been impressed by the respect that Australians show for wildlife in this country, which he feels is a huge cultural difference between here and Brazil.

Having been studying for nine weeks already, both Richard and Vanessa feel that their English has greatly improved already. They both agreed that studying at Lexis has really helped them improve their grammar skills, and that meeting other students and people in Byron Bay has helped them improve their speaking skills as they use English in all their social situations. Vanessa has found all the people in Byron Bay to be very friendly and believes we live in a little piece of paradise. Richard would recommend others to study here as it is a unique experience and life is short! Both said that the staff at Lexis, both in the office and all the teachers, are all gentle, kind, helpful and friendly too. They have both learnt a lot from their teachers and find that each teacher helps them to understand English in new ways.

When they first arrived, Richard and Vanessa lived with a Homestay family for the first two months. They thoroughly enjoyed this experience, as they felt very at home with their host family who were very friendly and great cooks! Initially they found it a bit difficult to adapt to the cultural differences and different house rules compared to Brazil, but before long they had settled in and quickly felt as though they were part of the family. They have just moved into a rental property – right next door to their host family. They have been lucky enough to share their property with an Australia local too – a friendly koala who is living in a tree in their garden!

Vanessa and Richard enjoyed Coffee, TimTams and conversation at Coffee Club

After completing their current English course, Vanessa and Richard hope to continue studying here for an extra six months before travelling around Australia. They would like to visit Tasmania, Cairns, the Outback, Sydney, Melbourne and many other places across the country before returning to Brazil and to work.

Happy Student – Paola!

Paola is from Brazil and is in her ninth week of studying General English at Lexis Byron Bay. After completing 14 weeks in this course, she plans to study both the Business and Cambridge courses at Lexis before returning to Brazil around mid next year.

Paola had always been interested in visiting Australia for the beautiful weather, people, beaches and places, as well as the proximity to New Zealand, a country she would also like to visit. Back in Brazil, Paola completed a Masters in Forestry and is planning to continue her research with a Doctorate in Forestry when she returns. In order to undertake the Doctorate, Paola needed to study English and she took the opportunity to combine this with a trip to Australia!

Paola feels that her English has definitely improved during her time here, through a combination of learning at school and practicing with friends and locals outside of school. She has been enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of Byron Bay, including the beaches and the people, as well as the healthy lifestyle and organic foods available in the area. She says that Byron Bay is an amazing place to study, live and experience!

Poala would recommend studying at Lexis Byron Bay, and says that it is a good school with great teachers. She likes the diversity of nationalities among the students, allowing them to not only learn English, but also to learn about other customs, foods and behaviours from across the world. She enjoys the activities available for the students each afternoon, with her favourites including Coffee Lounge, Surfing, Table Tennis and Skateboarding. Paola also believes having the onsite accommodation attached is a big plus too, as there are often Australian people living there which enables students to speak with and learn from the locals.

We hope you continue to enjoy your time in Byron Bay and Australia, and are very happy to have you as part of the Lexis Family in Byron Bay! 🙂
