Sydney – Lexis Manly welcomes 10 new students – 11 June 2024

We are thrilled to welcome our new students from Argentina, Brazil, Japan and Türkiye at Lexis Manly!

New Students
Welcome to Manly, Fumina, Chinatsu, Ayaka, Maho, Bea, Kiichi, Takamasa, Ozan and Taichi!

Every orientation day comes with many emotions, while our team and existing students at Lexis Manly are excited to meet the new arrivals and get to know them better, many new students are usually rather nervous or even intimidated by their first day. All new students typically settled in quickly, after meeting their fellow starters and start to exchanging over their goals and origin. However, today’s group of eager students surprised us all when each student started their day with a big smile and open mind – ready to make friends and enjoy every minute of their time in Manly.

With a group of like minded students, who are excited to meet people and start working towards their English goals, it didn’t take long for everyone to share stories of their home countries, hobbies and supporting each other to overcome the hesitation of speaking English on the very first day.

After each student was assigned to a class the group enjoyed lunch together and a guided walk and talk tour through Manly in the afternoon – now Fumina, Chinatsu, Ayaka, Maho, Bea, Kiichi, Takamasa, Ozan and Taichi are excited for their first day in class tomorrow and meeting their new classmates. Well done for being incredibly brave and curious on your first day! We have no doubt everyone will settle in well and tell us about fun adventures in Sydney in no time.

We look forward to the incredible contributions each of you will make to our campus!
