Happy Student – Xenia 🐬

Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Xenia!

Tell us a little about yourself Xenia:
I’m from Catalunya, from a little small village called Ventallo. I used to work as an early children’s teacher in different kindergartens, but I realised that first of all I want to travel the world. So I left my job and now I’m here in Lexis improving my English to become an English teacher.

Why Byron? I’m a music teacher.

7

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron because it is a small village like mine. I am also a music teacher and I heard that there is lots of music in Byron and thought “this must be my place!”

My friends back home also give me the nickname that translates into ‘Happy Fish’ in English. This is because I am always in the water back home.

8

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Well I did do English in highschool, and then I went to London as an Au Pair, but I decided that I want to know more people and to do that you need to know the language.

My teachers and my classes? It is perfect for learning. I have Paul as a teacher, and I find that his teaching is good and it is functional.

What was your favourite activity?
My favourite activity… I did like tie-dying! I want to do that again! The colours turned out a bit whack, but I would like to try again. Also, I want to try meditation and yoga. Living in Byron Bay makes me want to live healthier, eat healthier and be healthier.

Tell me about your accommodation/homestay…
I am currently living in a hostel, though am renting a house as of next week! I have liked staying at the hostel. There are many people there, and because of that when I go around Byron there is always a friendly face 😊

4

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I like to go for a picnic on the grass by Main Beach with friends. I do like to do that. The coolest thing here I think is the people I meet.

What is your most magical moment in Byron?
So far… my magical moment here in Byron… I walk along the beach at around 6am to see the sunrise. I never used to do that back home. I would actually like to sleep in! But there is something different here, I like the mornings.

2

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
I like the small classes, and I like the ‘English Only’ policy. It’s really good beacuse we stay talking all the time, so it becomes easy. It’s been good to practice speaking and listening.

6

What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?
If you are looking for a home place, Byron Bay is a good place to do it. I say don’t think about it and just do it. It’s an experience you will have for all of your life.

Make a Dream Catcher – Round Two! December 4th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Making a Dream Catcher!

It was a nice balmy afternoon so we thought it best to use the communal tables outside and with so many students it was perfect!

We used a woven wire to create our hoop. Then we wrapped the hoops with either wool or twine.

The next step was to start creating the inside web. Most students used different coloured wool or twine and we followed a step by step instruction sheet to help us.

This was the most difficult step but everyone got there in the end.

IMG_2737

IMG_2748Most students ran out of time to finish adding feathers and beads but they were left well stocked so they could finish in their own time!
