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!
