IMG_1645.JPG

Alexandra is from Spain and goes by her nickname Sandra! She is a biologist and environmental educator. After finishing her degree she worked as a guide in the Botanical Gardens in Madrid. After 1 year in this job she moved to a small town in Costa Rica; it was here she was told about a magical place called Byron Bay! She enjoys yoga, nature and animals, so knew Byron Bay would the perfect place for her English studies!

Estefany was born in Columbia but moved to the Canary Islands when she was very young. When she was 19 she then moved to Stockholm, Sweden to study a Bachelor Degree in Politics and Human Rights. Her biggest passions in life are travelling, reading and writing. Whilst in Byron, as well as improving her English, she also wants to learn to surf and will complete yoga teaching training after her 6 weeks with Lexis!

Raffaella is from Italy. She is a beautician there and owns her our beauty shop. In her free time she likes to play football, read books and take walks in the mountains. She wants to improve her English so she is able to speak with her English friends! She chose Australia for her studies because it is a beautiful country she is excited to experience!

Virginie is from Belgium. Her hobbies include gymnastics, judo and spending time with her friends. She has just finished high school and is now taking a gap year to learn languages; she has already spent 4 months in the Netherlands learning Dutch and will now be here with us for 20 weeks. After her gap year she would like to study Economy and Business which is only taught in English at the university; this is one of her reasons for being here, but also so she can find a good job and travel more easily!

Jan is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. He has just finished 10 weeks of English study at our Lexis Noosa school and will now study here with us in Byron for 3 weeks! He is looking forward to seeing more of Australia and improving his English even further!

Sushi Making! 23rd March

Last Thursday myself and the students made sushi!

It was my first time making sushi but luckily I had lots of helpful students on hand to show me how it’s done 🙂

For some of the students it was their first time also, but quite a few of them had made sushi together in their lesson the week before!

Waiting for the rice to be ready took some patience but we then got onto the fun part! Picking from tuna, salmon, carrot, avocado and cucumber we then rolled our sushi 🙂

The result was delicious and there was plenty to go around!

Coffee Club! 22nd March!

At last weeks Coffee Club myself, Andrea, Pol, Nil and Svenja played quite possibly the longest game of Uno in history!

We all had different ideas of how Uno should be played, which created a small bit of conflict but we got through it 🙂

Here’s the link to the official Uno rules for those of you who doubted me (all of you! haha).  http://www.unorules.com/

After over an hour of playing and us each getting down to Uno numerous times, Nil walked away as the winner!!

Next time we can play the Swiss and/or Spanish rules to speed the game up!

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