Kayaking & S.U.P

Arts & Crafts

This afternoon Lexis English Noosa students made some D.I.Y (Do it yourself) candle jars. For this activity the students were given plain glass jars, a tea light and lots of different materials and accessories.

All of the jars looked so cute. They will look even better once you light the candle.

Looks like everyone had a great afternoon!

Surfing

Yesterday afternoon Lexis Noosa students enjoyed a surfing lesson. The weather conditions weren’t the best but everyone still had a blast and enjoyed the activity.

Even though it was rainy weather the beach was still beautiful, the waves were great and the water was nice and warm! Hope you all had a great time trying to stand up and show us some great moves on the waves.

Fiona – CPE Student Testimonial

P2201081.jpg

Lexis English school in Noosa is a great choice to study English. I´m happy that I decided to come to this stunning place, which not only offers breathtaking nature but also gives many opportunities to make international friends and hence practise English.

The school campus is located in the heart of Noosa Heads, which therefore means that it is close to everything. There is a fruit shop right next to the school to get a snack during the break and on the opposite side of the street there are take away restaurants and a supermarket to buy lunch.

Also there is a travel agency situated close by which is really convenient for students who want to book some weekend activities and their further travels after school. And last but not least, it only takes twenty minutes on foot to get to Noosa Main Beach where many students go after school.

The school itself is well-organised and creates a pleasant learning atmosphere. There are many possibilities to sit down to do your homework or have lunch at tables. And for those people who rather like to relax, there are comfortable beanbags everywhere around the school. A fridge to store your lunch, microwaves to heat it up and filtered water render it possible to have a homelike lunch break. Moreover, a ping-pong table invites students to have a quick competition from time to time.

The relaxed ambience at the school makes it easy to make friends since everybody is really out-going and wants to meet people. Students have the opportunity to take part in activities which are organised by the school, innovatively and almost every day. More specifically: there are activities to join like BBQ’s, a sunset river cruise, student nights at bars, Australian Food tasting, painting boomerangs, watching a movie, yoga, sand castle building competition, beach activities and much more. In a nutshell, they are always different and fun to participate in and with it there always is the possibility to meet new people.

In any event, all the staff members are really supportive and friendly and they help the students with paperwork such as work visas, accommodation and whatever else they need. Also, the teachers are good and the lessons are always very funny, at least the ones that I am in but I am sure that it also applies to the other classes. Along with exam preparations, there is always time to have many interesting and entertaining discussions about life, love, environmental issues and technology etc.

To draw a conclusion; I can recommend Lexis English Noosa to everyone who wants to improve their English and have a good time.

Wine and Cheese Tasting

Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon trying 6 different wines from the Australian and New Zealand region. What a way to spend the afternoon….. Delicious!!!!

Wine 16.2.18

Brown Brothers Moscato

One of Australia’s favourite Moscatos, the Brown Brothers Moscato is a delightful reminder of the warmer months with its aromas of musk and freshly crushed grapes. Wonderfully spritzy on the palate, this aromatic sweet white has abundant flavours of sherbet and crunchy tropical fruit. Enjoy chilled with great friends.

Wine6 16.2.18

Hardys Stamp of Australia Sauvignon Blanc

What better way to enjoy one of Australia’s favourite white wines that with an additional 33% when compared to a normal size bottle? All the fresh, vibrant tropical fruit aromas and flavours are there to enjoy along with a zippy mouth feel and refreshing aftertaste that belies this exceptional value Sauvignon Blanc.

Crafters Union Pinot Gris

This wine is full of natural fresh and fruity flavours. Settled in cool temperatures, the wine fermented for 1 month, using specially selected yeast strains to encourage complexity on the palate. Aromas of Nashi pear, spice, and nectarine with flavours of fresh citrus, melon and apple leading to a silky, off dry finish.

Brown Brothers Moscato Rosa

From sweet wine experts, Brown Brothers’ Moscato Rosa is salmon pink in colour with Turkish Delight and citrus blossom on the nose. Sweet fruit palate with flavours of rosewater and fresh grapes, and a light spritz which adds appealing zip and zing.

Jacobs Creek Merlot

A fresh contemporary style of Merlot from Jacob’s Creek produces a luscious medium bodied wine that has ripe plum and berry fruit flavours in harmony with soft grape and oak tannins giving length and texture.

Hardys Stamp of Australia Shiraz

Hardys Stamp Shiraz is soft, generous and easy drinking. This Shiraz has attractive plummy aromas with a touch of spice and the palate is round and   fruity with a soft finish.
