Hip Hop with Wakana

What could possibly be better than a hip hop class on a Friday afternoon to get you ready for the weekend?

Our incredibly talented student’s Wakana and Asako made up a dance for Lexis Noosa students to learn as our Friday afternoon activity. Thanks for taking the time to make up the dance and teach it to us. You girls have some serious dance moves. Thank you to everyone that came along and I hope to see some of the dance moves at our next student night!

Head over to the Lexis Noosa Facebook to see the dance!

Conversation Club

Our Noosa students are always enjoying our academic activity, conversation club!This activity is great for the students to mingle and get to know each other while speaking English as their main priority. And best of all they get to snack on some yummy Australian foods during the activity.

Uno & Jenga are our favourite games to play and they are also a great conversation starter for the students!

Meet the Neighbours

The writing class did their closing task using many of the skills they had practised over the 3 weeks of the option class.  The task was to find a neighbour close to Lexis and to write questions and interview them about their life in Noosa.

Students composed questions based on an article we read in Backstory Magazine.  Each students composed a question and we all agreed on five common questions to ask our neighbours.  We visited our neighbours and recorded the interview.  We then transcribed the interview.
