All students will study for 30 weeks at our Byron Bay campus. It’s a great time of year to be studying and living in Byron Bay.

Aki is from Japan.

Solomon is from England

 Selena is from Italy.

Cristina is from Spain

Giovana is from Brazil.

The course is suitable for both native and non-native speakers and is CRICOS registered, which means that student visa applicants are welcomed.

It is designed for trainees who are seeking to gain an understanding of business fundamentals and who may be interested in gaining employment at a mid-level administrative or customer service role.

It is taught wholly in English, thus providing the opportunity for ex-Lexis students to continue to develop their knowledge and application of the language, while also learning some highly valuable business skills and vocabulary.

It was a perfect afternoon for a nice cold beer. We had 4 great brews for students to try.

Byron Bay Premium Lager

VB (Victorian Bitter)

Furphy’s Refreshing Ale

Stone & Wood Green Coast Lager

                 BBBco VB Furphy's Stone and wood

Everyone was given a form with a list of beers we were tasting. After tasting the beer they were asked to guess the flavours, which state the beer is from, alcohol percentage, price, and rating out of 10.

Guessing the flavours was the hardest task.

Halloween Party🕸️🕷️!! October 31st

Thursday’s activity was a You { Murderer } 🎃. We had Hip Hop dancing with Mina and Face Painting! It was held in room 8 at 5:30pm and all students were welcome.

Mina
is an amazing Hip Hop teacher who brought her skills along to get the party started. As it was Halloween we thought the best dance to start with was You { Murderer }.

Warm-up is always essential before a the masterpiece.

Getting the hang of things😆

While all this was going on, we had a team of students getting involved in the face painting event🧟‍♀️🦇🕷️

Getting ready to perform!

IMG_2212

After many practice rounds we finally saw the end result of the You { Murderer } dance.

Well done to everyone who joined in.. Loads of fun! Baptiste went away with a Happy Travels voucher to Kayak with the Dolphins.
