Welcome to our twelve students joining us at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

IMG_8034

Maria is from Barcelona, Spain. She plays handball and likes riding her bike. She works as a hairdresser in Spain.

Gustavo is from Brazil and here with his wife Giovana. His favourite hobby is playing soccer. He works within administration but would like to study business when he returns from Australia. He is looking forward to improving his English over the next 20 weeks with us!

Giovana is also from Brazil. She loves animals and takes care of cats and dogs. She wants to improve her English for new opportunities in her professional and personal life. She chose to study in Australia so she can discover a new country, culture and people! She picked Lexis Byron Bay because her cousin Izabel studied with us for nearly a year between 2016-2017 and said it would be the best place for her!

Celine is from the South of France. She loves sports, with her favourite being volleyball and judo, which she has a black belt in! She has a masters degree in Chemistry and works the CNRS (Central National of Research Scientific). She needs to improve her English as it is very important for her future career.

ChangSeok, nickname Eidan, is from Korea. His biggest hobby is basketball, both playing and watching.  He started his English studies in Sydney but there were too many Korean people, so he decided to move to Byron Bay instead to meet people from other countries and improve his English quicker! When he finished his studies he would like to work in Uluru.

Nicol is from Italy and currently living in the Italian part of Switzerland with her family. She likes to spend time with her friends, playing sports. She also loves to travel, which is one of the main reasons she is here! She has worked as a secretary for 3 years in the state’s office, but is taking a year break to travel and improve her English and German. She chose Byron Bay for her studies as it has always been her dream to be near the sea and surf!

Marta is from Spain. She has been living in Sydney for the last year and a half but chose to move to Byron Bay because of the nature and yoga! She worked as a beauty therapist in Sydney, giving massages and facials. In the future she would like to manage a business focusing on health, yoga, surf and massages.

Silvia is from Italy. She loves travelling, reading and all sports, but particularly surfing! She has a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering and an after-degree certificate in International Co-operation. It has always been her dream to come to Australia and she wants to be able to surf the beautiful Australian waves! When she has improved her English she would like to do an internship in Civil-Environmental Engineering.

Audrey is from the French speaking part of Switzerland. She works with children, as a social worker. She wants to improve her English so she can travel the East Coast of Australia and makes friends with people from all different countries! She is very excited to be here for the Australia summer, especially as it is snowing now in Switzerland!

Elsa is from the French speaking part of Switzerland. Her hobbies are drawing, painting, snowboarding and hanging out with friends. She studied applied arts and has worked as a decorator for the past 4 years. She wants to study English in Australia for many reasons; the main one being when she returns to Switzerland she would like to be a snowboard teacher and English is very important for this. She also loves travelling and knows English as important for this, as many people are able to communicate in English.

Yaiza is from Spain. She loves surfing, yoga, running and photography. She has been studying human resources at university and also working as a waitress. She wants a good level of English so she is able to speak fluently with people and get a good job.
