New Students
Welcome to Manly, Naoki, Anna, Hikari, Kokona, Larissa, Valentina, Berat, Daniel, Taiara, Riko, Juan, Vivienne, Laura, Kevin, Alejandra, Seyeon, Aoi, Itsuki, Eitaro, Reika, Ema, Kota, Nanami, Mana, Eva, Suichi, Yara, Diana and Vincenzo!

Today was a huge orientation day at Lexis Manly, with 29 new students from 10 different countries.
Each face holds a unique story, a different cultural background, and a shared eagerness to embark on an enriching linguistic adventure and we can’t wait to support everyone on their individual journey.

Our group of new students today had different goals for their time with us, while a few of today’s starters are preparing for the Cambridge exam, other are here to simple improve their English skills and while everyone is incredibly brave to go on this adventure by themselves, we were especially amazed with our TAP students who also started today, they are only 14-17 years old and despite being brave were also all very curious and excited to finally get started today!
