Friday fun

Pre-intermediate students had a lot of “Friday Fun” today acting out short conversations and revising this week’s vocabulary on the infamous “Hot seats”. Leire from Spain, Yu from Japan and Salem from Saudi Arabia  gave it their all  explaining  new words and phrases to their fellow team mates using paraphrasing, facial expressions and body language!

We had to farewell two of our students, Beat from Switzerland and Michelle from Japan, as they depart Lexis to commence new adventures travelling or doing farmwork. We wish you all the best. You will be missed! Stay in touch!

Visit from USQ

Thank you Paul Smith, International Relationship Manager (on-shore) from USQ for visiting Lexis Noosa yesterday afternoon. Paul spoke to students interested in attending higher education courses in Australia and gave advice and strategies on the best way to meet their goals.

We really enjoy having these amazing young students drop by; especially as they are looking more and more  ‘Aussie’ each day with their surfboards and skateboards and golden tans. 🙂

Pascal originally came to Lexis to study English and loved Noosa so much that he returned to enrol at the local high school

 

 

Some of their fellow International students are taking the Cambridge First and Cambridge Proficiency exam. They are delighted to be able to take the exams here in Noosa and have been having some pre exam coaching with our teachers.

Go hard or Go home?

Couldn’t resist taking a photo of teacher Suzie’s whiteboard this morning.

IMG_0626Suzie has been teaching at Lexis Noosa and Lexis Sunshine Coast since 2005. She currently teaches Cambridge Exam Preparation courses, and is loved by her students not only for her experience and excellence, but also for her amazing Monday cakes. 🙂

Suzie is also a qualified teacher trainer and has run successful TESOL Cert IV courses at our Noosa campus. In her spare time she indulges in her passion for jewellery making and spoiling her three cats.
