Hi! My name is Alba, I come from Vitoria and my dream of living in a paradise called Byron Bay came true! My experience in Byron Bay was incredible; I will tell you everything. I learned English at Lexis, one of the best language schools in Australia. The school is perfect, the staff and the teachers are amazing, courses are fun and full of games and activities. Teachers care a lot about their students’ progress and push them to speak English at all times.

I will introduce you to my new family: I stay in a residence close to the school, a 10-minute walk from the beach, for a reasonable price (as Byron Bay is pretty expensive). The residence staff is absolutely amazing and there are no words to describe the other students: they are Swiss, Japanese, Brazilian and many other nationalities, and they are always ready to help each other. I spent 3 months there, and I found friends for life. Like every time I travel, saying goodbye is the hardest part. If you plan to go to Australia to study English, don’t hesitate to come to Byron Bay. Lexis has other schools in other destinations as well, and even duo destinations.

I am very grateful for this experience; I could surf every day and recharge my batteries with an amazing energy. Another day I will tell you about the multiple things to do here. I love this place so much that I decided to extend my visa and stay for another English course in paradise. It’s true that Byron Bay is pretty expensive and doesn’t offer much work. Nothing is perfect… But I met people who work here, which means that it’s not impossible. I highly recommend going to Australia; it’s a unique and unrivalled experience!

In October, I took an English course in Byron Bay, a small city in Australia, in the region of New South Wales. This experience was absolutely incredible. Byron is a very special place; the pace of life is relaxed, people are really nice and the surroundings are amazing. I spent most of my free time at the beach, where I could see dolphins and whales, only a few meters away from the coast. The main sport here is surf, so even if you’ve never tried, you have to give it a go. At night, there are many bars with live music. The school is very welcoming and all teachers are always helpful. I recommend Byron Bay as a destination, as it’s really similar to paradise! You will learn English whilst feeling constantly on holiday!

The experience was absolutely amazing! It was also a bit short… even though I had planned on staying for only 3 months and ended up staying for 6! I would’ve liked to stay for the rest of the year, but anyway…

I don’t have words to describe the experience. All I can say is that I don’t regret going one bit (visiting Australia was one of my dreams). I loved the location, my accommodation, the people… It’s s small town, but the people you meet at the school and residence make the trip totally worth it. In fact, I’m going back in September!

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.

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.

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.
