Noosa National Park Walk

Some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque coastline can be seen in Noosa National Park. Several easy to moderate walking tracks wind along the coast, through rainforest and open woodlands and across colourful wallum heath and sedgelands. With the humid weather experienced at Noosa today, we decided to take the easy track up to boiling point headlands overlooking Tea Tree Bay.

Image

We ventured back towards Little Cove where unfortunately most of the students had forgotten their swimwear and could only put their legs in the water, while others (like myself) had a chance to jump in the refreshing crystal clear water. Afterwards we hopped on the FREE Sunshine Coast bus into the Junction, and had a thirst-quenching beer at Shades Wine Bar. Happy Monday!!!

Meet the lovely Manon!

It is Manon’s last week at Lexis Noosa, so we thought we would have a chat about her time here and see what she is up to next 🙂

“Hello, my name is Manon and I come from Montreux, Switzerland.

I am studying a total of 6 months in Australia, now I am in Lexis Noosa for 3 months and after I will move to Sydney for the remaining 3 months. I am currently in an upper-intermediate class and both of my teachers; Dionne and Eileen are fantastic and have been supportive during my course. I choose to study in Noosa because it seemed to be a really nice place, with a beautiful ocean and lots of nature. At first I thought I would stay in Sydney the entire 6 months, but I am glad I choose to try something different and experience Australian culture in a smaller location first. I first saw Noosa in a brochure at my agencies office and their staff then advised me of the location, as they have personally experienced Noosa and recommended it to me. I am very happy with my course structure and think it is perfect for me and I have really improved my speaking and vocabulary. Sometimes the lessons have been quite easy for me, but it is also good to revise the basics that I already learnt in my home country.

I am living in homestay accommodation and am very happy. My homestay family is approximately a 5 minute walk to the school, which is nice. At first, I was surprised by some cultural differences, but now that my family and I have gotten to know each other, those differences are not so obvious anymore. There are a lot of activities to do in Noosa if you enjoy the outdoors. During my time here I have enjoyed BBQ’s, national park walks, lots of outdoor activities, but especially surfing.  I will take home many wonderful memories and have met a lot of friends both international and Australian, I love the Aussie accent! I think Noosa offers a sunny life and everyone is very open, warm and friendly. People in Australia seem genuinely interested in meeting different cultures, which is nice. After my courses, I hope to travel part of Australia with some friends and maybe hire a van; I would really like to see Alice Springs. My main purpose in achieving an English qualification is so I can travel most places and be able to communicate. I think it is important to be bilingual and with English you can use it mostly everywhere. My goal is to study medicine and I hope to use my English to volunteer in a program, such as Doctors without borders. Thank you to everyone who helped with my Australian journey!”

Thanks Manon and we wish you all the very best….

 

Noosa Table Tennis Tournament

Today was our monthly table tennis tournament at Noosa Lexis. Marcos is the crowd favourite after coming 2nd last month, losing only marginally to our previous winner Pascal. We had some new faces in the competition today, even teacher Nat gave it his best go, but unfortunately was beaten in the first round. Marcos as our strong competitor took out Dani with a 11-0 score meaning Dani had to do the semi nude run around the table.

Image

The Semi’s saw Joey, Andy, Kim Yeon, Marcos and the lovely Anj go head to head. After a few tough rounds, it was Marcos and Joey who met in the finals.

Image

Marcos as the crowd favourite and newcomer Joey with his unique style, it was hard to guess which way this match was going to go. In the end Marcos was too strong with his quick and firing returns winning 2 sets to 0 and claiming the new Noosa Lexis English Table Tennis Champion. Well done!! Enjoy your beer and chocolates boys 🙂 🙂

Students Choice Activity- Blinded tasting

Today the students had the opportunity to choose their own activity with the majority of interest going towards a blinded tasting. The students were given pirate eye patches to eliminate the sight before the smell and tasting of different items.

We started with some spices- cumin, curry powder and nutmeg, all of which were quiet difficult to tell apart. Then we got to the tasting, where some of the items were delicious, while others were not appealing to the French and Swiss students, such as Vegemite. We also included some cheese, nutella, mango frozen yoghurt, and wagon wheels just to name a few.

Image

Image

Image

The second round of blinded tasting had the Saudi Arabian boys and teachers Arlene and Annette join in on the fun. Well done to Arlene for her great scenes and winning a bottle of wine, however we all just look like a bunch of drunken pirates 😉

Image

Great choice of activity students! WE will definitely do this one again!

Meet Manuel’s Mother

All the way from Switzerland, Manuel’s mum, Daniella,  has come to visit the Lexis Noosa School to see where her 18 year old boy has been studying for the past 4 months. Before visiting the Lexis school, Manuel took his mum sight seeing at the Noosa National Park and tomorrow they will head to the Australian Zoo to hold a Koala. After that they will drive back down to Sydney and spend a week there sight seeing. It was lovely to meet you Manuel, you will be missed by all!!

MasterChef Noosa Style

MasterChef is a competitive cooking show that originated in the UK in the 1990. Today, we have brought the MasterChef concept into the Lexis Noosa School. Students were able to form there team of 4-5 individuals to take part in today’s competition. Students had the choice of 7 core ingredients and unlimited herbs and spices, and had 30 minutes to prepare, cook and serve their dished to the judges. 

Image

Image

The three dishes the students created includes; A Spanish rice dish, A veggie patty Asian style sandwich, and a slow cooked chicken and veggies with jus. And the end result look delicious!

 Image

The four judges (Teacher David, Nat, Anj and student Abraham) had a chance to taste all the dishes and decide on their favourite.

Image

Then the students had a chance to try all the different dishes and discover the competition they were up against. 

Image

Even though all the dishes were fantastic, in the end there can only be one winner. The runner up prize, who received a free coffee voucher each, was… The Veggie Patty Asian Style Sandwich!

Image

Well done Eunmi, Bora, Mina, and Jeong!!

So the winner of MasterChef Noosa was…… The Spanish Rice Dish!

Image

Well done to Niko, Dani, Carlos and Miquel, I hope you guys enjoy your Christmas hamper 🙂 🙂

Welcome NEW Students!

A big welcome to the new students who arrived today! I hope you all have a great time in lovely Noosa!! 🙂

Friday Afternoon Yoga

For those students who are lucky enough to attend the Lexis English College in Noosa, once a month on Fridays we offer a lovely and relaxing Yoga session to all the full time students. Today’s yoga session began with Nadi Shodhana which is a channel breathing that lowers the heart rate and reduces stress and anxiety. It is also used to synchronize the two hemispheres of the brain and purify the subtle energy channels (nadis) of the body so the prana flows more easily during pranayama and asana practice. After the pranayama the students were gently led into a revitalising and relaxing yoga session. What a lovely start to the weekend. Namasta.

Goodbye to Cambridge Profiency Class December 2013

‘The time has flown by, we can’t believe it and we are so sorry to leave’. However it was all smiles when they finished their exam papers this afternoon.

IMG_1808Goodbye to  Daniela, Lars, Severine, Benita, Stefan, Fabian, Chloe and Marlon. You have been ‘uber – students’ and we will miss you also.

 

Its starting to look like Christmas…

It’s that time of the year again, to blow the dust off the box of Christmas decorations and deck the school with boughs of holly. We assembled the school Christmas tree with Becky getting into the spirit humming her Christmas Carols, and then the students joined in to help decorate the tree and school areas.  The school is now buzzing with Christmas cheer!!! 🙂 🙂

Former Student from 2010 returns to Lexis Noosa!

Former Student Masayo Uesugi was a student at Lexis Noosa from January to August 2010.

Today she returned as a newly wed and brought along her husband to show him the school. Masayo remembers her lovely teachers Phil, Suzie and Tim. Masayo had such happy memories of Noosa, that she choose it for her honeymoon destination 🙂

Her English improvement led to her being able to train in accountancy in Singapore and she now works for an account firm in Tokyo, which is where she met her husband.

It was great to meet up with Masayo again!

Surfing North Side Noosa

Waves were dismal this afternoon at Noosa Main beach, so we decided to head up north side of the break wall to have a go on some banks further up the beach. 

Firstly, we went through some surf safety, so the students could understand and identify a rip, what to do if they get stuck in a rip (swim parallel to shore and not against the rip) and identify different banks and channels. After the surf awareness brief, the students had an introduction on the sand on how to paddle on a board, where to lie when paddling for a wave, and how to get up and stand whilst on a wave. Once we went through the theory session, the eager surfers were keen to hit the water to catch some waves. Image

Although the condition were not ideal, some of the students still managed to catch some waves, while others had some great wipe outs. Daniel even showed us how to do switch stance on the surfboard. 

ImageImage

Image

 All the body boarders did well to catch some waves and are ready to step it up with a surfing lesson next time round. 

Image

Everybody had a great afternoon and worked well as a team helping each other to stand up and surf!!!

Students balance study & work!

Meet Stanislava, who is studying and working in Noosa 🙂

“Hello my name is Stanka and I am from a town called Zilina in Slovakia.

I am studying General English at an Intermediate level and then after 4 weeks holiday, I will start an 11 week Cambridge English course, which makes me happy. I decided to study at Lexis Noosa because it is not such a big city and the school offers a really nice beach side location. I also had a consultation with an agency in Slovakia and they recommended this location. I am happy and think it was definitely the best choice for me. My class is perfect and I have a great teacher named Annette, her explanations are very easy to understand. The school is very nice, has a good, open space and courtyard. I feel very comfortable and happy at this school.

At the moment I am living in a share house, which is ten minutes walking distance to the school. I have also found a job and I am very happy so far. I am working as a waitress and kitchen hand at a very nice country / golf club called ‘Noosa Springs’. I work around 4 days per week and it is close to my accommodation and the school, which is nice. I also like working as I think this is a great opportunity to learn English out of a classroom. Everyone is always speaking English and I need to understand what they are saying and listen to instructions. I have also met an Australian girl who was hired at the same time as me and has invited me to dinner, so I hope to make many friends while I am in Australia.

When I finish my course, my plan is to travel around Australia before I return home. I am sure I will take back many nice memories but also invaluable work experience through my job opportunity and hopefully a Cambridge English qualification.”

Charlotte shares her story!

When arriving into a new country, at first sometimes students can feel very far from home and experience culture shock. Charlotte went through some of these feelings but never gave up and ended up having  a great time. Read about her experience below…

“I arrived in Australia on Sunday 15 September after a long, long, flight. I took three flights. I was very exhausted, so exhausted that I cried at the airport when I waited for the bus to go to Noosa.

On the Monday I went to Lexis and felt very lost and anxious. I was biting my nails. My homestay mother was with me and showed me the shops and the area. I think having the test the first day is a good idea, also the interview.  After school I walked with a new friend and fell over and had to have crutches and then I got a cold. It was hot outside. It was not a good first week. I was lucky to have a wonderful homestay family. When I fell the mother looked after me.

In the second week and went and saw Becky. My boyfriend wanted me to return to Belguim. My family understood that it was difficult for me to be here because it was the first time that I travelled so far alone. Becky listened to me and told me to think more carefully because it was a big opportunity. Day after day it was better. I met new friends and I had a good teacher who was patient and caring. My English improved and I was happy.

In the evenings I went to the bars with my friends. I went to Australia Zoo and Fraser Island. Fraser Island was a really wonderful experience. It was a special weekend on a beautiful Island. During this weekend I burnt my nose, Becky laughed at my red nose when I returned.

Now it is my last week after two and a half months. I started in pre-intermediate and I will finish in intermediate and I am able to write a text with an introduction, a number of paragraphs and a conclusion. I now think in English and when I listen to French music I translate the lyrics into English.

Next week I am travelling to Brisbane for two days and then I will go to Sydney. I will have my birthday in Sydney alone. I will be 20 years old.

It was a wonderful experience. I am proud of myself because I have good English now and I can speak without problems. If someone talks to me I can answer this person. I am glad I stayed to the end of my study and I didn’t give up!”

Well done Charlotte and good luck with your trip 🙂

A fond farewell to our FCE students!

A long Journey but Lourdes is here

A big sunny welcome to our newest student. It has taken Lourdes Del Rosario Lazo Neira four days to travel from Peru to Noosa and she is happy to be here at last.

IMG_1803Lourdes, who works in a travel agency in Peru is looking forward to studying for the Cambridge Proficiency exam with us from December 30th. It is great to have her here and brings our nationality mix to students from 26 different countries. 🙂

Meet your classmates!

Meet Sachi who is studying at our Noosa campus for 10 months. Sachi is a qualified Nurse in Japan and her goal is to one day work as a Nurse in Australia.

“Hello, my name is Sachi and I am from Yamagata in Japan. This is my 4th time to Australia and I am studying at Lexis English at the Noosa campus for 10 months in total and have completed 6 months already. I started my General English course at elementary level and now I am in the upper-intermediate class. I choose Noosa because my city in Japan is in the countryside and I didn’t want to study in a big city, or busy place. My agency in Japan introduced Noosa to me and I was very happy with this suggestion. I am very glad I decided to study in Noosa because the school is not too big and it is easier to talk to other students and make good friends. I love my teachers; they are very helpful and kind. I always feel comfortable to speak to them if I have a question. I am living in a share house now with both Australian and International people and it is a 15 minute walk to school. At first I lived with a homestay family for 8 weeks and had a good experience. I am still in contact with my host family and they are very nice to me. I am also working as a kitchen hand at a restaurant and I love my job. My boss is helpful, funny and nice and even told me I can bring my textbook to work and they will help me with my English. I have been working here for 3 months now and my friend passed this job to me. I work 3 hour shifts and this suits me with my study schedule and also gives me time to relax when I can. When I finish my English course I will go back to Japan but I want to return to Australia and study a nursing course here.”

Monday Afternoon Tennis

Today’s activity allowed the students to have a friendly game of tennis at the Noosa Tennis Club. It was a great way to get to know some of the new students and to see some of the tennis talent at Lexis.

Great afternoon guys!!! 🙂 🙂
