Trivia Time At Lexis Noosa!

Beer trivia was our Friday afternoon activity this week!

There were some easy questions and there were some questions that the students just looked at the television screen in confusion (I guess Marilyn Manson does have that effect on some people). Each round was tallied and the winning team receiving a six-pack of beer. Congratulations to team KKKK who won three out of the four six packs!

Meet Lexis English & Surfing student…Karen!

When chatting to our Lexis Students, we are always finding out some really interesting stories….take Karen for example!

Where in Switzerland are you from?

Close to Zurich

What is your occupation there?

I am a Physical Education Teacher for Secondary school (ages 12-16 years), and I also train recruits at a Police Academy.

Which Lexis English course are you studying?

English and Surfing for 1 month

Are you enjoying surfing?

Yes, I really like the surfing lessons. My instructor is so helpful, and makes me feel safe in the ocean.

What do you think about the local beaches?

I like that there are two different beaches here – Main beach, which is more protected and Sunshine Beach, which is rougher. I really like that both beaches are connected by the National park, the walk is beautiful. The beach amenities are great as well; you can take a shower and even drink the tap water.

Which class are you in?

Upper-Intermediate / Advanced

Have you made a lot of friends at Lexis?

Yes, we are all a close group and there is a good Nationality mix in my class.

Are you living with a host family?

Yes, I live with my hostfamily in Noosaville near the river. I am totally happy with my family and living with a hostfamily has helped with my English conversation.

Have you enjoyed your study and lifestyle in Noosa?

Just yesterday I said to my friend I could live here forever!

Where will you go from here – any travel plans?

I will go on a sailing trip to Airlie Beach and then to Cape Tribulation

What do you hope to achieve from your Lexis English course?

A wider range of job opportunities. I hope to become a Secondary English Teacher one day, and studying English and the experience of living in an English Speaking Country will help me achieve my goal.

Alessandra and Sophia put all their mischievous energy to good use today and assisted in cooking a sausage sizzle for all the Lexis Noosa students at lunchtime. Everyone enjoyed the sausages.
