Sydney – A warm welcome to our 25 new students – 11 September 2023

We are excited to welcome new students from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Japan, Liechtenstein, Spain, Switzerland and Türkiye!

New Students

We had a big orientation day at Lexis Manly today and welcomed 25 new students from 10 different countries. They got here just in time for spring and were welcomed with a sunny day, what a great start to their time in Australia.

Due to the new students being not only general English students but also applied for the Cambridge certificate preparation, we split the orientation in two groups today.
Our Cambridge students had a long placement test for the first hours, due to their high goals while our general English students learned more about our campus, the area and each other. After everyone had a chance to join the orientation they all met up and enjoyed a walk and talk with our teacher Mich, where they discovered secret beaches and the perks of Manly.

We are excited to get to know our new addition to the Lexis family better – we can’t wait for our new students to explore our weekly activities, form friendships and work towards their individual goals.

Have a great time at Lexis Manly!

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • Cambridge FCE/CAE: Katja Buonanno, Genki Taira, Fabian Grob, Cassy Savoini, Alissia Lampert, Alissa Graemiger, Ina Hayen, Rahael Bosshard, Leilany Ochsner
