Mount Coolum

Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon on a beautiful walk up Mt. Coolum National Park.

We love visiting this mountain because it is one of the Sunshine Coast’s most spectacular coastal views. The students get to see some of Australia’s rare and threatened plants, wildflowers, birdlife and geology feature on their walk up the mountain.

We hope you all enjoyed the walk! Have a great weekend and we will see you Monday morning.

We say goodbye to Sasha from IELTS, Nadia from Pre-Intermediate, Yara and Rafael from Intermediate, Valentine and Maxime from Upper-Intermediate and Sayaka from FCE. We hope you have enjoyed your time at Lexis Noosa. We wish you all the best for the future and safe travels!

Sunset River Cruise

Yesterday afternoon Lexis Noosa students and teachers made their way down to the Noosa River for a sunset river cruise. This is a great opportunity for the students to meet new friends, improve their English and see different landscapes of Noosa Heads.

The students enjoyed some nibbles and drinks while they sat back and relaxed taking in the beautiful sunset.

 

The night was followed with a cozy bonfire, plenty of laughs and all round good vibes.

Hope you all enjoyed your night!

Travel Diaries

Caroline Burri 1

Wow what adventures Caroline Burri had travelling around Australia.  It was great hearing about all her experiences after she planned them in the travel option class!  Caroline spent two months on the road and managed to cover most of Australia in this time!  She went to beautiful National Parks, swam on both coral reefs and spent time exploring the major cities.  We are lucky to have a travel agent on site who helped her book her tours.  Maria loved chatting to her and seeing her photos.  When she was asked Caroline said that she had really appreciated the friendly people, the amazing adventures and the breath-taking natural wildlife.  If she could change one thing it would be to spend more time travelling!

Welcome 23.4.18

Welcome to our four new students at Lexis Noosa!

23.4

This morning we are welcoming Sebastian, Mina, Rachel and Juliette from Switzerland.

We hope you all enjoy your time at Lexis English.

Noosa National Park

Will it or won’t it rain? It was a little tricky this afternoon as we were making our afternoon activity plans. The Noosa National Park walk was on the agenda but wasn’t sure if we would make it through the park dry.

But four of our beautiful Lexis Noosa students were on a mission to have an adventure and find some amazing Australian animals and of course have fun along the way!

 

 

One last visit

We love visits from our old students! Elisa studied General English at Lexis Noosa for 17 Weeks before graduating at an Intermediate level. She has been working in Australia since she finished her studies in August 2017. Elisa is finishing her Australian Journey with one last visit to her favourite teachers before returning to Korea to create new memories with her best friend that she met through Lexis Noosa.

Elisa will travel over to France to visit her best friend. They have always talked about travelling to France together and now that it is finally happening they can’t be happier! It’s great to see that you two have kept in contact and are perusing your dreams. Goodbye Elisa and good-luck on your new journey with your friend!

New and improved Job Workshop!

Lexis Noosa has partnered with Zapala People to create the best Job Workshop for the Lexis Noosa students. Zapala is a “Happy small team, focused on recruiting, training and placement of awesome talented people across the logistics, hospitality and housekeeping industries”.

Lexis Noosa couldn’t be happier to be helping our students as much as we possibly can. Zapala will be helping our students to write their resume, get their TFN & ABN, fill out new employee forms, help with superannuation and of course help finding them a job.
