Murilo, from Brazil, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class. He was an excellent member of the class, who always participated well in discussions and during activities. He’s improved his English all areas during his time in Byron and we are sure will continue to do so. Good luck for all you do in the future Murilo!

Joao, from Brazil, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class. Claudia says it was great having him in class and he always interacted well with other students during activities. All of his hard work and efforts have paid off, with him progressing from Pre-Intermediate to Upper Intermediate. Best wishes for the future Joao!

Victhor, from Brazil, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class. He is a motivated student who’s English has improved a great deal in his 14 weeks at Lexis. His enthusiasm contributed to a positive class atmosphere and will be very much missed next week. We wish you the very best for the future Victhor!

Patrick, from Switzerland, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class.  Claudia has really enjoyed having him in class, describing him as an interested and motivated student. His writing is particularly good and a talent we think he should pursue! The whole class enjoyed his humour and wit and will be missing him next week!

Roman, from Switzerland, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. It has been an absolute pleasure having him here at Lexis. He has excellent speaking and listening skills and was always great to have a conversation with. His jokes and good humour were always very much appreciated in class and out of class activities. We hope you enjoyed your time in Byron as much as we loved having you here!

Rachel (Hyunjung), from Korea, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. She has worked hard and improved in all areas of her English, particularly her speaking ability. Well done for all your efforts Rachel! Best wishes for the future!

Juliane, from Brazil, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. It has been a joy having her here with us; she is a positive and enthusiastic student who always has a smile on her face. She started with us in Elementary and should be very proud of all her hard work and progress! Enjoy your break Juliane and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Shizuku, from Japan, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. Michelle has really enjoyed having her in class, saying she worked very well with all of her classmates and brought great enthusiasm and attitude with her every day. Her understanding of grammar and use of vocabulary is excellent and her participation in class was always productive. We wish you the very best the future Shizuku, it was lovely getting to know you!

Lizzy (Jiyeon), from Korea, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. Michelle says she has worked extremely hard and she has really enjoyed watching her progress. Her understanding of grammar, speaking and writing has improved a great deal and she graduates with a well deserved A! Good luck with your future studies Lizzy!

Dream Catcher Making! 24 May

We had a creative afternoon making beautiful dream catchers!

First we watched a video from Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s) demonstrating how to make them, and then it was our turn to give it a go!

It’s quite tricky at first but easy once you get going!

Once our nets were complete we added shells and beads to the centre and hung feathers from the bottom to make them even prettier!

Soccer match against BBELS! 23 May

Yesterday we played Soccer against another of Byron’s local schools!

We lost some of our sign ups due to rain, but still had eleven determined players who weren’t going to be put off by a little bit of bad weather!

After the first 20 minutes the blue skies were back and we were even treated to a beautiful rainbow!

Our team was made up of 8 boys and 3 girls and they all played amazingly together, with great spirit and teamwork.

The students continued to play even as it got dark and the rain came back! Real competitors!!

Well done to Fabio, Joao, Jeff, Cristiano, Sevie, Alex, Benoit, Gabriela, Patrick, Laurene and Helena for securing Lexis a 4 – 1 win!!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!

Coffee Club! 15 May

It’s so lovely to be back at Lexis Byron after a little trip back to the UK! I feel extremely lucky to have a job that I can look forward to coming back to, this is all thanks to the wonderful staff and students I get to spend my days with 🙂

Today at Coffee Club Judit, one of our Spanish students, shared two games with us.

I won’t go into details as it involves everyone having to work something out, and we can hopefully play it again one day with some new students! Let’s just say lots of fun was had, especially when most of the group had figured out the pattern!!

Join me next week for more games, coffee and Tim Tams!!
