Cambridge Teachers Rule – OK

Our hard working Cambridge First and Cambridge Advanced teaching team.

Jonathan, Sharon, Mary, Anne and Tim

It is nearly the end of another round of Cambridge courses and next week the first exams take place.  I asked the students to describe their teacher in a few words and this is what they said:

Anne, FCE: “Best teacher ever.  Helpful, lovely, kind, polite and on time”
Sharon, FCE: “Really kind and makes the course attractive. She makes it easy to learn”.
Tim, CAE: “A cool teacher, intelligent, relaxed, down-to-earth and a great story teller. Makes it fun”.
Jonathan, CAE: “Keeps us motivated. Hard working, always prepared and entertaining:.
Mary, CAE: ” Is a great grammar teacher. A  lovely person, Always concerned and helpful”
 
Thank you to our teachers and GOOD LUCK to all our Cambridge candidates with your exams.

Early start to Whale Season

The Sunshine Coast’s favourite visitors are a little early this year….

The first whales of the season have been spotted off the Sunshine Coast!

You will be able to see them now up until November.  Best viewing points are from Sunshine Beach or the National Park.   They are very easy to find when you learn how…check for splashes in the water when they jump.

Bingo Time!

It was that time of the month again when students gather in the TV Room to win prizes and hope to shout… bingo!

GV Noosa Bingo is becoming a popular activity each month and the students love to verse each other and win some great prizes. Not only is it fun but it assists the students in developing their english numeric skills. Today the students had to say each number that came out of the bingo barrel in their own language. We had bingo numbers being yelled in English, Portuguese, Japanese and Korean. Everyone was a winner and received a $20 tribal night voucher. I’m sure they will have a great night tonight!

Last Days At School

Today is the last day for some of our great students Tomohiro, Neide, Marcus and some others as well.  

It was also the last  teaching day for teacher Nathan Katterns at Global Village Noosa, he is moving into a sales position in Western Australia.   

His students made a card and enjoyed a party for him and the other class mates who are also leaving.  They will all be missed dearly by their teachers and new class mates.  

From all the staff at Global Village Noosa we wish a big farewell and best luck to all those who are leaving today.  We hope to see you in the near future.

Here is some feed back from Laura Koch one of our students studying at Global Village Noosa in an Upper Intermediate class.

It‘s always fun in our class.  Danielle’s got a great sense of humour and at the same time I can improve my English skills easily.  During the lessons Danielle encourages me to make progress and to work with different members of the class, which makes me understand different cultures and accents.  It’s a pleasure for me to be in this class and improve my English in such a nice place with a highly entertaining teacher like Danielle.

A Beautiful Afternoon of Beach Volley Ball

Students from Global Village Noosa headed to the beautiful Noosa Mainbeach yesterday afternoon for a few rounds of Beach Volleyball. 

Students enjoyed a good few rounds of competition with 5 to 6 players on each side.  The teams competed against each other however it was Anita’s team that was victorious 3 times in a row. 

The other team captain Patrick was keeping his players busy by teaching them how to signal with their hands to their team mates behind their back. 

 

All players competed well and there was plenty of good healthy competition with all students.  Here are todays players together for a group photo.

Be sure to come along and join in on all the hot action each week with our friendly activity staff.
