Please contact Mya at Lexis Noosa Reception for more information!!

Student Profile: Nicolas Boulanger

Today I sat down with student Nicolas Boulanger to find out about his time at Lexis Noosa.

Where are you from: Ermeton-Sur-Biert, in Belgium
Which program are you studying: I’m in the Teen Activity Program – first I did TAP Surf, and now I’m doing TAP General. In total I am here for 6 weeks (this is week 5) – I am on summer holidays from my school in Belgium.
Why did you choose to come to Australia to learn English: My friends have gone to England and America to study and I wanted to go somewhere different. And I love Australia.
Why did you choose Lexis?: My parents found out about Lexis and thought it would be a good idea. It was a great idea!
What do you like to do in Noosa: Hang out with my friends, go surfing and being outdoors.
What is your favourite thing about Lexis Noosa?: The teachers, they are close to their students, they’re approachable. They discuss with me, how and why, not just ‘at’ me. I like their style of teaching.
What do you like to do in Belgium: I’m on the National Baseball Team, so I play a lot of baseball and train a lot too.
Do you have any siblings (brothers or sisters)?: I have a little sister, she is 11 years old
Do you have a life motto?: If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done

‘Jeans for Genes’ Day at Lexis English

Teachers at Lexis English organised a charity morning tea to raise funds for the ‘Jeans for Genes’ foundation. Students enjoyed homebaked goodies while, one gold coin at a time, supporting the Children’s Medical Research Institute.

Conversation club is growing!!

So many happy, smiling faces at Conversation Club today!!!

We played our version of ‘Celebrity Heads’ – with many many laughs!
It turns out that asking “What colour am I?” is not going to help you work out that you’re Brad Pitt…

Healthy Eating – no cook dessert!

Chia seeds, both coconut milk and water, a little sugar and some finely diced banana and pineapple…. whisk, leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to set and – bam! Easy to make, healthy, ‘no cook’ dessert!!
(it tastes waaaaaay better than it looks, I promise!)

Even Mya – the world’s worst cook and junk food addict thinks she might make it at home!!

Many many thanks to the wonderful Isabelle for her recipe!
