Sydney – A warm welcome to 17 new students – 6 November 2023

We are excited to welcome our new students from Brazil, Germany, Japan, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Türkiye!

New Students
Welcome to the Lexis family Alessandra, Kana, Urara, Flavia, Hana, Maria, Ayaka, Omer, Mira, Sarah, Rahel, Mohammed, Kata, Leon, Christine, Cem and David.

Today we got to meet 17 new students, who will be studying with Lexis Manly over the next 3 – 24 weeks. On their first day all students go through a writing and speaking test to create an individual study plan. Once everyone is placed, it is all about discovering Manly, the beaches and get to know each other better. The first day can be intimidating but they soon realised that they are all on the same journey together and start exchanging and enjoying their time together. Our new students had a great first day and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to meet their new classmates and teachers tomorrow.

Have a great time at Lexis Manly!

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • IELTS preparation: Leon Schoenenberger
  • Upper intermediate: Mira Zimmermann, Sarah Kinkel, Omer Kara, Maria Garcia Alcantara
  • Intermediate: Christine Oestreicher, Rahel Wagner
  • Pre intermediate: Hana Higakure, Flavia Arnold, Camila Machado de Faria, Ayaka Eto, Kata Devcic, Kana Kawai, Urara Fukuda, Cem Bieri
  • Starter: Mohammed Alqahtani, Alessandra  De Souza Pereira Lima


Best wishes!
