Graduation! 16th June

Congratulations to our six General English students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay this week!

 

Graduation

Sakiko from Japan graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class after an incredible year of studying at Lexis. She heads to New Zealand to travel, before heading to Perth for a short stint at our Lexis school there. Since her first day here in June 2016 she has gained an incredible amount of confidence in her speaking and listening. She has been a very dedicated student and her progress has been impressive. Her teachers really enjoyed teaching her due to her hard work and positive attitude. Have a wonderful trip to New Zealand and good luck with your future studies in Perth – and with your Gold Coast Marathon!

Nil from Spain (Catalonia) graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class, having completed his FCE course with Paul. Nil has been with us since September and has been a fantastic member of the school – getting really involved in all the activities and taking every opportunity Byron has to offer. He leaves us with a great level of English: a really good grasp of grammar and an impressive vocabulary. He will be sorely missed by us all here!

grad 3

Madoka from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class. She has been a very motivated student and as a result he has achieved fantastic exam results throughout the course. She has participated very well in speaking activities and her speaking skills have improved a lot. She is off to travel around Australia with Kensaku to find all the best surf spots. It has been a delight to get to know you Madoka – All the best!

Kensaku from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class. Michelle expressed what a pleasure it had been to teach Kensaku, who would tackle each daunting task with enthusiasm. He has really improved his speaking, writing and listening abilities. Keep practicing English with your lovely wife Madoka as you seek out surf spots up the Coast!

Wahei from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class, after 4 weeks of study. Despite only a short period of study, Wahei has improved greatly in all areas of English, especially his speaking ability. He has participated well in class activities. He is off to travel and surf around Australia. Have a wonderful time Wahei!
