Lorenzo is from Italy and has come to travel the beautiful Australian countryside! He works for his family in a restaurant at home, and will look for work in the hospitality industry here after completing his studies. His goals while studying at Lexis Byron is to improve his confidence in conversational skills. He is from a city which has many international visitors and he wants to engage with them more when he returns home in October.


Anouk is from Switzerland(land of the prettiest passports and money, which she calls toy money) and has transferred from our Lexis Sydney campus. She said she was so sad to leave the teachers and friends in Manly. She hopes to continue learning to surf here and enjoy the Byron beach life. Anouk is in the Upper Intermediate class and scored among the highest in her on the test on her first day here!


Hikaru is from Japan and studies Business and Marketing in Tokyo. He is active and loves sports, ready to pick up surfing and diving as the locals do in Byron. His goal is to travel and make friends all over the world. He is studying English to help him connect with more people and learn about new countries and cultures. Hikaru chose Australia for the ‘summer sports’ lifestyle, we hope to see him out in the surf soon.


Daniela is from Santiago, Chile which happens along the same latitude line as Byron Bay. She enjoys Yoga and Pilates and beach life which is why she chose to live and study in Byron Bay. It is important to her to study English to open up opportunities internationally and meet new people. Daniela plans to travel to Indonesia at the end of the year and then return to Australia to work in and explore WA!


Mai is from Japan and works as a Kindergarten teacher. She became a teacher because of the kindess of her teacher’s growing up. She lived in the Netherland as a child and wishes to return there to work and live one day. Her goal for studying English at Lexis Byron is to improve her confidence in speaking so that she can make friends and memories around the world. She is staying our homestay program and her homestay family has two little girls which she is very happy about, she even brought them Japanese snacks.


Kao is from Japan. She has travelled to Australia previously and returned because she is a big fan of our outdoor activities, music and smoothies! She has recently graduated University and wants to work with children after studying the links between self esteem and childhood. Studying English at Lexis will help her gain the skills needed to continue studying childcare in Brisbane for the next two years.


Alberto is Spanish and lives in Switzerland. He is studying General English part-time and plans to enjoy his time in Australia taking a break from his work life at home. He is was eager to learn about the local beaches and tours and surfing so we have no doubt he will find many exciting things to learn and do here.
