Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Sina!
Tell us a little about yourself Sina:
My name is Sina, I’m from Switzerland and I’m 21 years old. Before I came to Byron Bay I was working as a carpenter. I want to learn English because I like to travel and then you have to speak English. I have been in Byron for four weeks.
Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron Bay because I was shown photos of the school and Byron and I wanted to go. It’s also the opposite to Switzerland, this is another reason why I wanted to go. It’s easy going and chill.
What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Some things in English were hard. My weakness would be grammer, and the use of present or past tense. I had a good teacher and funny class. Michelle is funny and so nice. How she explains everything was very good.
What was your favourite activity?
Jewellery making I think was my favourite. I liked boomerang painting too, though the skill of jewellery making is one that I can do every day.
Tell me about your accomodation/homestay…
I was staying in Suffolk Park and had a very good house mother. She is a very good cook, and would read over my essays and help me with my English. I would also ride my bike to school, it was good and I can get the money back when I sell it.
