Byron Bay- Amazing Academic Hour- 19 March 2024

Recently at Lexis Byron Bay, we have introduced a new activity! The ‘Academic hour’

Academic Hour!

The academic hour is an optional activity for full-time students to have some extra help in areas of study.!

On Mondays we have Conversation club, where students have a set topic e.g., travel and practice their conversation and speaking skills. It is set up as a speed-dating style workshop which allows students to speak with people from many different backgrounds and English levels.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, we have homework help (previously known as GIL). Where students can take in homework they have been given and receive help from one of our teachers to complete and understand it.


On Wednesday we have a grammar workshop. Students focus on one grammar rule each week and ensure they know how to use it correctly.

And finally, every Thursday we have job club. This gives students a crash-course in finding work, writing resumes and their working rights in Australia. Students can bring their pre-written resumes and have them corrected or they can write them from scratch. As well as this, students learn about interview skills, and how best to answer common interview questions.

The Academic hour has been extremely well attended by our students, some even saying these activities have been their favorites overall!
