Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Benji!
Tell us a little about yourself Benji:
My name is Benjamin. I’m from Spain. I’m working in my country as a PE teacher in highschool.
I’m really interested in learning English because I love travelling and meeting new people. I arrived five weeks ago and this is my last week.
Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron Bay because I had never been here before. I wanted to go surfing and I checked out the sporting activities here before I came.
What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
I found it hard to speak to people in a natural way. I wanted to improve my agility to use grammar, as I found it tough to use spontaniously.
Kristy was my teacher, and you could tell that she prepared in a good way. We worked a lot, but she made sure it was correct.
What was your favourite activity?
Coffee Club is a good idea. It’s a relaxed environment to practice speaking English. Though I couldn’t choose just one thing because I tried everything! Soccer was really good fun too.
Tell me about your accommodation/ homestay…
My accomodation was onsite in a single room. The facilities that they have here are good, and the space and the environment is what I liked.
What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I liked doing outdoor activitites like BBQs at the beach, beers at the Beachy or on the grass, snorkeling and surfing – I loved it! I liked to go surfing at Tallows, The Wreck and Clarkes. It would just depend on the conditions.
What is your most magical moment in Byron?
I would say my routine, and not just one paricular moment. I would start early and have a 6am surf or chill at the beach before lessons at school. It is a good life, a good routine.
What did you like most about Lexis Byron?
The relaxed and friendly environment, this was the best point about Lexis. And also the kindness of Siobhan and Diana.
