Happy Student – Tito!

18010432_209012562931374_2165457964557203249_n

Tito is from Switzerland – the small village of Malvaglia. He arrived in Byron Bay 6 months ago and enrolled at Lexis, starting in the Upper Intermediate class. After several months studying General English, he went travelling round Australia in his van, with friends he had met at Lexis. He traveled down the East Coast, into the outback and finally to Sydney, before returning to Byron. He is now knuckling down to study for his Cambridge Advanced Qualification. Tito has become part of the furniture here at Lexis Byron Bay; you will often find him waxing his surfboard, skulking around reception looking for Tim Tams or involved in a heated table tennis match. Tito is a fantastic student and a pleasure to have at school, he is loved by fellow students and teachers alike.

I decided to interview Tito to find out a bit more about his experience here.

Why did you choose Byron Bay?

I chose Byron because I didn’t want to live in a big town with all the hustle and bustle – I wanted to live in a small town – here with the waves I can find peace, enjoying the sunny weather and the fresh sea air. I think I would to define Byron Bay as an open minded and multi-cultural place.

boys

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia?

I was a little bit rusty in everything concerning grammar – for this reason it was essential to go on a formal English course. Being here for 6 months, using the language has become natural – I think it is a process which takes time, but you can really see your improvements by being fully immersed in a situation where the use of this language is required.

18033978_209012312931399_1600763903313032396_n

Tell me about your teachers and your classes.

I have been enrolled in upper intermediate and then advanced, where I had the opportunity to meet the amazing teachers Claudia and Josie – Claudia is an extremely knowledgeable teacher and I liked her way of explaining a lot of grammar rules which before were difficult for me to understand. Whereas Josie is the most motivating teacher that I have ever had and it’s a great pleasure to learn such a challenging syllabus with a teacher who makes it seem so easy and enjoyable.

What is it like living in our onsite Accommodation?

It’s an extremely comfortable and familiar place to live – there is a very sociable environment, it is very easy to make friends and as soon as you arrive you become part of the onsite family. It is always possible to go out of your room and hang around in the common area, seeing all of your friends. Since my arrival I’ve met a lot of gregarious people with whom I have organised many dinners, for example the Easter Sunday dinner where almost all the residents (50 people) cooked delicious dishes to share in a friendly and pleasant environment. Many students from around the world made different dishes from their home countries. I made a pizza from scratch, inspired by my Swiss Italian heritage – so tasty.

17951989_209012622931368_997784327999815512_n

What is your favourite activity that we run here?

The most attractive activity is undoubtedly the table tennis tournament, where only the student with the best skills can win the title and of course the beer. It is always full of cheering crowds, the competition gets very heated. Romain is better than me, so he usually wins, but I win second place, which is also an impressive accolade. Don’t worry if you think you are not going to win, we will still share the beer with you!

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?

Most days I enjoy spending my time at the beach, surfing, sunbathing and playing beach games such as Frisbee and Volleyball. It is wonderful to live and study right on the beach. I will never forget the time when a dolphin passed right under my surfboard, what a breathtaking moment! I often see dolphins when surfing, during the Summer it is as common as seeing bushturkeys. You also can’t leave Byron without experiencing the nightlife of this delightful town; Sticky Wicket, Lala land, The Rails and of course Cheeky Monkey’s are all lovely pubs/clubs where you can meet local people and share drinks and great discussions with your friends. A warning though: Do not abuse alcohol; otherwise you will pay the consequences the next day at school!

After nine months in the Activities and Student Services Officer role, I am finishing up at Lexis Byron Bay today. I will be starting a new job, an almost dream job for me, working with animals at a Veterinary clinic in Mullumbimby!

Thank you to everyone, staff and students, for making this time so amazing! I’ve met such wonderful people from all around the world and I will miss you all.

Claire will be taking over my position and I have no doubt she will do an excellent job and be loved by all the students! Make sure to say hello and introduce yourself when you see her around school and running the activities.

I’ll still be living in the Byron Shire so will be sure to see many of you when I come into Byron Bay for a surf or a beer.

Best wishes to everyone for wherever your studies, work and travel takes you in the future!

Learn English in Byron Bay. Lexis English students study General English, IELTS, FCE, CAE and English plus Surfing in a friendly and professional school right in the heart of Byron Bay and only 15 minutes from the beach.

New Starters! December 12

Welcome to the five new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_1457

Bruno is from Brazil and is an only child. His father is a Mechanic and his mother works for a company as the Manager of Distribution. Bruno likes diving, surfing, playing piano, the beach and  nature. He works from home as a Goldsmith. He decided to come to Australia for the warm weather and similar climate to Brazil. He wants to learn English so he can further his knowledge for his career with courses in other countries.

Axel is from Switzerland and lives in the small town of Fribourg. He has a large family, with two brothers and two  sisters. He completed his apprenticeship as a Watch Maker but wants to follow a new career path when he returns, possibly working in the Luxury Car industry. He decided to learn English because it is an important language that is useful for discovering other countries and ways of life in the world.

Thomas is from Switzerland and is one of four in his family, including his parents and older sister. He loves playing tennis and football. After completing school he decided that he prefers manual labour over sitting at a desk so now works as a gardener. He chose to study English in Australia because it is a wonderful country and it’s a good excuse to get out of Switzerland for their Winter!

Larissa is from Brazil and lives in the city of Sao Paulo with her mother and brother. She is studying Biomedical Engineering at university and in the future hopes to continue her studies at a university with a more advanced course in this area. This is part  of the reason for her wanting to study English. She also chose to study in Australia because she has a cousin living in Sydney and she visited Australia herself when she was a young child but doesn’t remember much of that trip. She chose to live in Byron Bay to experience living in a small town with a calm, relaxing lifestyle and after just one day here so far, she already loves it!

Shirori is from Japan and is one of four in her family, with her mother, father and older brother. She loves yoga and hopes to one day be a yoga teacher. She decided to study English to help her reach this goal. She chose to study in Byron Bay because this area is well known for having a lot of different yoga classes and retreats to experience.

Coffee Lounge! December 13

Today we had a lovely relaxing Coffee Lounge. It is a hot day in Byron so we enjoyed the yummy TimTams and great conversation without the hot coffee today!

img_1462

Even Tito awoke from his midday slumber just as the packet of TimTams was opened. (Coincidence??? I think not!).

img_1463

At Lexis Byron Bay we know how much our students LOVE their TimTams so there are always plenty to be shared around!

Slacklining! December 9

Byron Bay has been hit with storm after incredible storm this week and today has turned out to be a bit rainy and overcast as a result.

img_1390

The weather did not deter the students from slacklining though!

img_1419

They were as keen as ever to get on the line and learn or keep practicing their balance.

Everyone did really well and the students who have been attending the slackline activity each month are improving each time!

img_1389

A big thank you to Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution for coming by to teach us the skills of slacklining!

Table Tennis Tournament! December 8

Today we held the Table Tennis Tournament to find this month’s Lexis Champion!

We held two sessions, to allow both morning and afternoon students to be involved, so ended up with two champions for this month.

In the morning Roman held onto his title from last month…

img_1355

…and in the afternoon Danny claimed the title!

The tournament could be renamed the Battle for the Beer, as that is the main motivating factor to win!

Paulo’s Homestay Experience

Paulo is from Germany and graduated from Lexis Byron Bay last week after seven weeks of studying English. During that time he lived in a homestay, which was a wonderfully positive experience for both him and the family he stayed with! After leaving, he sent this great photo collage to his homestay family to thank them for the experience and to share with future students staying with them. 🙂

Cider Tasting! December 1

Today we sampled some Australian ciders. It was a perfect activity for the hot weather on the first day of Summer!

img_1205

The ciders were brewed all over Australia, from the Adelaide Hills (The Hills Cider Company) to Sydney (5 Seeds) and a couple of local ones from Byron Bay (Treehouse Cider and Wild Cider).

img_1202

Everyone had a different favourite, which wasn’t surprising given the broad range of tastes and flavours in these ciders.

img_1201

From a dry, crisp apple to a sweeter pear and an infused flavour of native Finger Lime with apple, there was a cider for everyone!
