Nico has joined the Lexis team and is currently training at Noosa and also looking after our awesome Junior students. Nico will then be joining our Sunshine Coast campus from April…
“Hi there, my name is Nico, I am happy to be the new student support/activities coordinator at Lexis Sunshine Coast Campus! I love the outdoors, water sports in particular such as swimming, rowing and kayaking. I have practiced many sports but I stuck to rowing since I was 12 years old and represented my city in France for national championships. I have travelled around Europe, parts of the Caribbean, Australia, south-east Asia and I am looking forward to discover the rest of the world as soon as possible. I was born in Belgium and grew up in France, so I am lucky to speak Dutch, French, English and a bit of German. I have always enjoyed the language courses I studied at school and this led me to study International trade in France before leaving for Australia. I have pursued different studies here in Australia on the Gold Coast and studied Environmental Sciences. Eventually I will work on a project combining both International trade and Environmental Sciences. I am very excited to be part of the Lexis team and I am looking forward meeting all the students and staff at the campus. My aim is to make sure students are having fun and that they all keep great memories from their stay on the beautiful Sunshine Coast!”
Senior teacher Annette Sievert and teacher Michelle Previti recently attended a teacher professional development day run by English Australia.
Today, they reported back to the teachers all the new ideas/theories and teaching tips that they had learned whilst in Brisbane. They were both inspiring and everyone left with new ideas and enthusiasm, which will benefit all our students. Annette and Michelle were also lucky enough to win free teaching text books at the conference!

It was the first match of the season held on the brand new soccer fields at Girraween Sports Complex in Noosa. It was a hot afternoon and both teams were determined to get started with the game. With the first goal scored by Franceso from the Noosa team, Noosa thought they were in the running for the win. At half time it was neck and neck with the teams at two apiece. Sunshine Coast had the upper hand in the match after halftime with a brand new team coming on the field. With fresh legs and energy, Noosa found it hard to keep up. With some great skill shown by the attackers from the Sunshine Coast, and Noosa defense starting to get tired, two goals were placed nicely in the back of the net from the Sunshine Coast boys. Both teams played well and it was great to see such sportsmanship from the Noosa team. A special mention to both Lara and Selisha for getting out there and having a go against all those big boys, and especially to Selisha for that brilliant slide tackle. And also to all the students especially the cheer leading girls, who came to support the Noosa Team. After the match both teams enjoyed a few drinks down at the KB bar.
With the final scores 4-5 in Sunshine Coast favour, I am looking forward to the next match in a couple of weeks down in Maroochydore.

Today here at Lexis Noosa we celebrated our annual end of year Christmas Party. With the carols blasting, the classes took in turns belting out there favorite Christmas tunes, with the help of their teachers. With the Christmas cheer going around, the students also enjoyed some sparkling wine and Christmas treats (made by Ange!), which gave the mood a jolly feel. The combination of wine and end of year celebrations made for a wild party in the Common room! Merry Christmas to all students and teachers, and we will see you again come New Years Eve!
Students take their Lexis English experiences all over the world….
Take Masa for example who studied at Lexis Noosa. He has recently been travelling throughout Europe and staying with Swiss, French and Russian friends that he made whilst studying! Masa has now done a circle around the globe and returned to Noosa for a visit, it was great seeing you again Masa
A massive welcome to our newest staff member, Angela! Angela has joined the Lexis Noosa team as the new Student Service’s and Activities officer.
Hey I’m Ange, and I am the new Student Services/Activities Officer at Lexis Noosa! I have a passion for physical activity and nutrition which led me to the completion of my studies in 2007 in an Exercise Science and Nutrition degree. This helped my gain a role as a Clinic Manager for a Weight loss center. I then worked as a Training Facilitator in the UK for Boots pharmacy and a Health Coach for Medibank Private. I am also a qualified Yoga Instructor and love doing morning yoga sessions down the beach.
I love to Surf! I have surfed in spots all around the world, and my two favorites are Nias in Indonesia and Barra De Cruz in Mexico. I have recently returned from a trip surfing around Australia and now live in Sunshine Beach.
My ultimate goal is to encourage individuals to have fun and enjoy the activities we have to offer. I look forward to meeting all the students and staff here at the college!

Last month we had the fantastic opportunity of showing European based agency ESL a genuine Lexis English experience!
ESL is an international specialist language travel agency. ESL offer study abroad options in more than 160 destinations and help people connect globally with providing language courses for juniors, language schools, adults, internships or courses for executives. To increase their knowledge of Australia and also how each of their representative schools run, ESL arranged a FAM trip to Australia for ten of their staff who represent ESL’s promotion of key regions in Australia. In doing so, the counseling provided by ESL staff to potential students, will be genuine and from true experience.
We were delighted to meet the following ESL staff and appreciated the time they spent getting to know the Lexis English team and our Noosa and Sunshine Coast campuses on their FAM trip.
Gautier Oudot – Regional Manager French part of Switzerland | Juan Pedraz – Regional Manager Spain | Marie Page – Regional Manager Belgium | Olivier Grollimund- Regional Manager Italy | Javier Perdomo – regional Manager Colombia | Sophie Greco – Office manager Paris | Sina Pfau – Office Manager Winterthur | Nadja Moser – Office manager Luzern | Chloé Bourquin – Office Manager Montreux | Christin Schreyl – Office manager Berlin.
Meeting the staff from across ESL’s branches was a special experience and gave us great insight to a student’s beginnings pre-arrival in Australia. We thought it would be a good idea to have the ESL crew explore life as a student once in Australia (along with a little VIP treatment …
Although we missed Javier in the morning (who unfortunately had to experience what it was like as a student whose connecting flight goes astray along with his luggage), we had a lovely morning welcoming ESL staff to Noosa. After a day of leisure and activities (some who braved the surf, some who spotted a koala in the National Park), we all met for a wonderful sunset cruise and yummy dinner! With no time for jetlag – ESL staff spent their Sunday on a day tour to beautiful Fraser Island. In the evening, chef extraordinaire and also Lexis English’s Managing Director – Ian Pratt, put together an amazing BBQ dinner and drinks, as a get-together for both ESL and Lexis staff. Monday was a busy, but productive day and included campus tours at Noosa and Sunshine Coast, an information session hosted by Ian and student interviews were also held during lunch and in the afternoon.
It was then time to say farewell to our lovely Agents and get them ready for their next stop…Brisbane.
On behalf of all the staff at Lexis English, we would like to thank ESL for this opportunity, wish you all well and look forward to next time! If you’d like to get in touch with ESL, visit them at www.esl.fr
