Es hatte viel zu viele Schweizer an dieser Schule. Mir wurde gesagt ca. 20%, doch als ich ankam, wurde mitgeteilt, dass es 40% seien. Die erste Hälfte meiner Zeit war der Unterricht zu einfach, ich war unterfordert. Das Problem war, dass es keine höhere Stufe gab. (Kein Advanced General Class) Nach einem Monat konnte ich mit einigen Gesprächen in die Cambridge Class Advanced wechseln. Ab dann war der Unterricht besser.Die Leher waren alle sehr nett und die Stimmung war genial. Das Im ersten Monat war ich bei einer Gastfamilie. Alles wae sehr sauber. Top!Im zweiten Monat war ich im studentenhaus direkt neben der Schule. Das Zimmer war supper, die Küche war sauber, jedoch war das Bad zu beginn sehr dreckig, doch es besserte in der meiner zweiten Woche. Kann das Studentenhaus empfelen, man ist nahe bei der Schule und hat seine Freunde direkt bei sich.

« Im ersten Monat habe ich nicht besonders viel gelernt. Etwas mit dem Sprechen, doch die Lehrer habe uns leider nicht verbessert und wir haben meist untereinander diskutieren müssen. Und wenn wir untereinander reden, wissen wir nicht, ob es korrekt ist oder nicht. In meiner zweiten Hälfte des Aufenthalts habe ich mehr gelernt, da es genug anspruchsvoll war. »

« Tolle Lehrpersonen und sehr hilfreiche.Die Aktivitäten der Schule waren toll. Die Schule ist nahe an der Beach.Die Schule vermietet Velos, welche nur 2$ pro Tag kostet, sehr günstig und praktisch in Byron Bay. »

Lexis English, Byron Bay
Duration: 25 weeks

I love Byron Bay because everyone is so easygoing, relaxed and fun. I can surf, swim, run, play golf anytime I like as the weather is always perfect and I get to do these things amongst the beautiful Byron Bay landscape. I am living in Byron Bay as I am studying at Lexis English Byron Bay. I am studying to sit the Cambridge Advanced exam and also the IELTS exam as I need it to gain entry into the University Degree I plan to study back in Switzerland. The staff and students at Lexis English are so much fun, caring and are so easy to get along with, they are very laid back and casual - just like the people I have met in Byron Bay and all of Australia. I also like the teaching style as it is fun, relaxed yet educational at the same time. I also really like how the school is organised and structured - the daily class timetable . . . It is well thought out how the day is broken up between classes and activities and I love that we are given the afternoon off to enjoy the beach, to study alone or enjoy everything Byron Bay has to offer. I would DEFINITELY recommend this school to anyone who wants to study English and at any level. The staff are so caring and really go out of their way to make sure that the students are coping academically and personally and that the students are enjoying Byron and having a great time.

Lexis English, Byron Bay
Duration: 4 weeks

I loved the experience. I loved the teachers, the school, the city. The only thing I didn’t like is that I had been told that it’s always summer in Australia, but I was cold from time to time. The experience has been unforgettable and I will certainly do it again. I highly recommend this place, but you should stay longer than me… I stayed only one month. Australians are lovely and warm; they made me feel at home.

Lexis English, Byron Bay
Duration: 2 months

My stay in Byron Bay was really good, I was in the accomodation downstairs of the school of Lexis and it was nice, the people that I met there were amazing, they make a family with all the new people who come and they are so friendly.

The teachers from the school are awesome, I have improved my English a lot and they create the classes like games to entertain the students and make the classes light for them, because some people are there 5 months or more without holidays and it´s hard being a long time studying English.

About the town of Byron Bay I can say that the place is really nice, you have a lot of different beaches such as Main Beach, Talow Beach, Wategos Beach, etc. You can visit the Light House too and behind of Tallow Beach you can find a natural park that it is amazing.

I really recomend go to the sunset in Main Beach if you have the opportunity because it is a magic sunset. You can find people playing the drums while you are watching the sunset.

For me the experience was short because i only was there 2 months but I will try to go back again. If you want to go to Australia, most of the people are going to tell you go to Byron Bay.
