Sydney – A warm welcome to our 15 new students – 4 September 2023

We are excited to welcome our new students from Chile, France, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and Türkiye!

New Students

Today 15 new students joined the Lexis Manly family, while it can be intimidating to take on a first day of studies all by yourself, this group quickly started chatting and getting to know each other. Namika, Yanick, Shugo, Antoine, Haruka, Natalia, Javier, Yuto, Chikako, Ayuka, Constanza, Marta, Furkan, Gizem and Nora took the brave step to fly out to Sydney on their own, to chase their goals.

We are excited to support them and include them in our Lexis family – we can’t wait for our new students to explore our weekly activities, form friendships and enjoy the ocean views from their new classrooms.

Have a great time at Lexis Manly!

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • Cambridge preparation: Yanick Wood
  • IELTS preparation: Nora Hofer

  • Upper-intermediate: Javier Fernandez Parraga, Natalia Cuesta Cabales
  • Intermediate: Chikako Kamei, Shugo Yakabi, Marta Brunet Coma, Antoine Lannurien, Constanza Mendez Estrada
  • Pre-Intermediate: Haruka Okushi
  • Elementary: Ayuka Kobayashi, Namika Okada, Gizem Yavuz, Furkan Turan
  • Starter: Yuto Sunagawa
