Sydney – A warm welcome to 5 new students – 08 May 2023

Lexis Sydney welcomes 5 new students from Argentina, Brazil, France, Saudi Arabia and Türkiye!

New Students 8.5.23
Welcome to Manly Lilou, Luiz, Ali, Nizar and Luis

In Sydney we woke up to the coldest morning of the year yet. But as soon as our new students made it to campus the sun finally came out and welcomed the new starters.
Ali (23), Nizar (19), Luis (32), Luiz (33) and Lilou (19) started their first day off with a placement test and fun orientation where they learned about Manly, our campus and Australia while getting to know each other.

After finding out which classes they will join they went out on a walk and talk with our teacher Mick – a true Aussie who is full of good stories. The group learned what Manly has to offer and that it really does only take a few seconds to be on the beach. We are excited to welcome everyone back tomorrow for their first day of studying, meeting their new classmates and teachers.

We hope you have a great time at Lexis Sydney and achieve your individual goals.

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • Upper-Intermediate: Lilou
  • Pre-Intermediate: Ali and Luiz
  • Elementary: Luis
  • Starter: Nizar

Best wishes!
