Congratulations and farewell to our six students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay today!

IMG_0696

Stephanie, from Switzerland, graduates from Josie’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has been a hard working, dedicated student and this has paid off with a well deserved A grade! We hope you have an amazing time on your travels around Australia and enjoy your studies at Lexis Perth!

Paloma, from Spain, graduates from Elizabeth and Julia’s IELTS class. In her 28 weeks here she has become a big part of Lexis and will be missed dearly. It has been an absolute pleasure to have got to know her and we hope to see again one day! We wish you the very best for the future Paloma!

Tae

Tae, from Korea, graduates from Kathleen’s Upper Intermediate class. He started with us in Elementary 24 weeks ago and has worked his way up through Pre-Intermediate to Intermediate to his current Upper Intermediate level. He should be very proud of the hard work he has put in and progress he has made. Good luck for the future Tae!

Claudia

Renata, from Brazil, graduates from Claudia’s Advanced class. It has been an absolute joy having her here at Lexis! She is a friendly polite student who always has the biggest brightest smile on her face. Her dedication and positive attitude to learning are two of the reasons why she has progressed so much in her time here. We are very glad this isn’t goodbye as Renata will be back next year to do our Business Course!

Pascal, from Switzerland, graduates from Claudia’s Advanced class. As well as our General English course he also had private tuition to further his English even more. All his hard-work and dedication has paid off with him making great progress in all areas. Claudia says it was a real pleasure to teach him and all his contributions to class were much appreciated. Best wishes for the future Pascal!

Irene, from Spain, graduates from Claudia’s Advanced class. She is a lovely, friendly student with an excellent level of English. Claudia says it has been great having her in class and she really appreciated  her participation in class activities and discussions. This hopefully isn’t goodbye as Irene may be returning to do our Cambridge course in January!

It was a lovely hot day in Byron and the beautiful blue water was extremely inviting!

The water was a warm 21 degrees so wetsuits were optional!

Waves were pretty big so the students stayed between the red and yellow flags in front of the lifegaurds, the safest place to be!

Just another glorious day in Byron Bay 🙂

Coffee Club! 5 December

Today at Coffee Club we enjoyed a few rounds of Scattergories with our coffees and Tim Tams!!

For those who aren’t familiar with Scattergories; it’s a fun game to play when you only have a few minutes to spare, but also a game you can play for hours!

You pick different categories and then take it in turns to say a letter (do the alphabet in your head until someone shouts stop). Everyone then has to list something beginning with that letter for each of the categories! The time is up when the first person shouts out that they have a word for each and you then score 10 points if you are the only person with that word, or 5 if someone has the same word!

There were some questionable answers and a heated debate on whether mushrooms were a vegetable, but everyone scored a 10 out of 10 for effort 🙂
