New Students
Joining the Lexis Manly family today: Sonja, Yuki, Chia-Sheng, Miku, Hayato and Sandra

Today at Lexis Manly, we welcomed 11 new students. Each face holds a unique story, a different cultural background, and a shared eagerness to embark on an enriching linguistic adventure. We are so excited to have you all onboard!

They all had their orientation day today, which included a writing and speaking test, followed by the creation of an individual study plan for each student based on their goals. After being assigned to their classes, they had the chance to explore our campus and get to know each other better. Orientation day is a celebration of global connections, as our students have the opportunity to connect with peers from various parts of the world. After their lunch break, they discovered Manly together on a guided ‘Walk and Talk” tour, shared stories about their home countries, discovered the area and a few of our iconic beaches.

We look forward to the incredible contributions each of you will make to our campus and can’t wait to welcome you back tomorrow for the first day of your studies.

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • CAE: Sandra Alonso
  • Advanced/IELTS: Hermine Herlan,Chia-Sheng Huang
  • Upper Intermediate: Sonja Seibel
  • Intermediate: Pedro Ribeiro Miranda, Roger Montserrat I Folguera, Paul Moser, Thomas Brissonneau
  • Pre-intermediate: Miku Sakakibara
  • Elementary: Hayato Tachibana, Yuki Nagahama


Best wishes!
