Graduation! 20 July

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

Teresa

Teresa, from Spain, graduates from our Pre-Intermediate class. Her teacher, Paul, says she has a fantastic attitude to learning and always worked hard to understand new grammar. Her writing and speaking have improved a great deal during her 4 weeks here. You should be very proud of your achievements Teresa! Best wishes for the future!

Int

Juliana, from Brazil, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. She is a lovely student who is always friendly, positive and smiling. She has made lots of friends in her short time here, who will all miss her jokes and sense of humour! She worked hard in class and this paid off with her graduating with a grade A! Good luck with the next chapter of your life in Australia, we hope to see you again soon!

Shiho, from Japan, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. It has been an absolute joy having her here at Lexis. She has a lovely personality and has made lots of friends during her 16 weeks here. She has progressed in all areas and it has been great to watch her confidence with speaking grow. Congratulations on your well deserved A grade! We will miss you and your beautiful smile!

Eleonora, from Italy, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. We have loved having her studying with us, and Mel describes her as a ray of sunshine. Her easy going nature and positive nature were always much appreciated in and out of class. Well done for all your hard work and grade A! Best of luck for the future!

Alex

Alexandre, from France, graduates from Claudia’s Advanced class. He has only been with us a short 2 weeks but it has been a pleasure to have him here. His command of the English language is excellent and he has shown himself to be very competent across all skill areas. He made valuable contributions to the lessons and his participation in activities has been wonderful. We wish you the very best for the future!

Jobs! 18 July

Jobs.PNG

 

There’s not many job advertised this week, but that doesn’t mean there’s not jobs out there!

The best thing to do is go round all the bars, restaurants, cafes, hostels and hotels handing out your resume. If you need help writing your resume you can go to GIL any day between 2 and 3pm; in room 8 every day except Mondays when it’s in room 7. Then email to me: adminbyron@lexisenglish.com and I can print 10 free copies every day for you 🙂

Persistence is key, so if you don’t hear back from them after a few days go back in and follow up. If they remember you you’ll be the first person they think to call when a job does become available!

If you are wanting to work somewhere that serves alcohol you will need to complete your RSA. For more information on this and barista courses follow this link: https://lexisbyronbay.com/2017/02/01/rsa-and-barista-courses/

Graduation! 13 July

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

Patrick

Patrick, from Switzerland, graduates from Paul’s Pre-Intermediate class having progressed to this level from Elementary. Even though Patrick was only with us for a few weeks, he made huge progress in his English abilities and always enjoyed joining in with class discussions and activities. We wish Patrick happy travels and the best of luck for the future.

Koki, from Japan, graduates from Paul’s Pre-Intermediate class. Although he was only at Lexis for 4 weeks, Koki’s speaking has really improved and he’s all set to continue on his working holiday adventure. His teachers commented that he was always keen to volunteer in class and should have no problems travelling and finding work.

sdr

Theo, from Reunion Island, graduates from Paul’s Pre-Intermediate class. Theo has been on our TAP English and Surfing Program for the past four weeks, so has been having surf lessons as well as English. We’ve really enjoyed having both Sacha and Theo in the school as they have been such polite and keen students and passionate surfers. Theo’s teachers praised his English level achieved and his participation in class.

ChristophSacha,  also from Reunion Island and travelling with Theo, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. His teachers Mel and Julia commented on what a pleasure it was to have him and how much they’ve enjoyed his jokes and good humour. Even though only 16 Sacha connected and participated well with his classmates and was great at giving his opinion and discussing topics in class.

Christoph, from Germany, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. Christoph was on an Adult English and Surfing Program so also had surf lessons most afternoons. We have enjoyed having Christoph in the school as he is always smiling and so easy-going. His teachers commented on how mature he is for his age and what a respectful and engaging personality he is. His English has also improved steadily and he progressed from Pre-Intermediate to Intermediate during his time at the school.

dav

Kana, from Japan, graduates from Kristy’s Elementary class. Kristy told me how much she’s enjoyed teaching Kana and watching her improve over the last three months. She said that when Kana started she found it difficult to make a sentence but now they were enjoying whole conversations. Good luck, Kana, with your next adventure.

Sushi Making! 12 July

Today’s activity was Sushi Making, which is always popular here at Lexis Byron!

IMG_5108

I printed out instructions for how to make the rice, but luckily some of our lovely Japanese students stepped in to tell us how it’s really done!

Juliana, from Brazil, also told us about how they make their sushi in Brazil…sweet! Lots of us were queuing up to try her strawberry filled rolls!

IMG_5097

Everyone else had more savoury options to fill theirs! These included tuna, salmon, cucumber, carrot, cream cheese, cucumber and avocado!

We all had a fun afternoon and nice tasty treat at the end!

Thank you to our Japanese teachers 🙂
