Today I caught up with our two youngest brothers, Hyunmin & Minjae from Korea who are currently studying in our High School Preparation Program!

The brothers are best friends and are very excited to be going to Maroochydore State High School in February next year.

Their favourite things on the Sunshine Coast are the nice people, the beaches and the sunshine and their favourite class is HSP with Sonia in the afternoons!

FCE Speaking Fun

Our FCE classes watched an example of a speaking exam and then put into practice straightaway what they had learned ! Combining the classes for special activities has proven to add to the fun!

How do our Cambridge First classes start their day?

A good way to get ‘slightly hung-over’ students motivated in the mornings is to start with a good speaking warm up.

Our three Cambridge First classes work closely together, and at 9am yesterday morning I found them mixing together to practise ‘Speaking exam part 1’ topics.

Conversation Club goes CRAZY!

So many new and returning faces to Conversation Club today – we had to split the group!! While one group wrangled with Jenga and questions, the other played a very energetic game of ‘Celebrity Heads’!!

Koala Spotting in the National Park

Check out the notice board outside the information centre at the entrance to the National Park. It is updated each day to let visitors know where to spot a koala. Australia Zoo is fantastic, but nothing beats seeing an animal in the wild.

Fun Filled September

Check out all the fun activities on the student notice board. Don’t forget to join the crazy fun at Soho Bar every Monday  and student night every Thursday (Venue to be announced). Let the fun begin.

A warm welcome to our new teachers

Today we said welcome back to lovely Caroline Hughes and a big sunny Noosa welcome to  three new teachers.

Caroline returned to the UK this year but couldn’t wait to come back to her ‘Lexis Family’.  Matthew, Sarah and Sean are all UK trained and accredited TESOL teachers. Matthew has taught in England and more recently in Ukraine. Sarah has previously taught in England and Sean has previously taught in Vietnam, Korea and Malaysia.

Catch up with all the new students and our new teachers at the big welcome BBQ on Monday from 2pm. They say they are also looking forward to chatting with everyone at Sogo Bar on Monday evening.  🙂

Volunteering in Noosa. A worthwhile cultural experience.

Our wonderful host mother, Sandra Harding organised a National Fundraising event recently for research into breast cancer and was thrilled that some of our students were happy to volunteer.

Sandra wrote;  I was so happy that Hyewon and Jung Yun volunteered their time.  I do believe that the experience was beneficial as the student volunteers had to point to our map of Noosa sound to show participants where the start of the event was and engage in conversation in a real situation .  It is a pleasure to introduce international students to others in Noosa and involve them in community fundraising for the National Breast Cancer Foundation who are grateful.
