Grammar Workshop: Reported Speech

Grammar Workshop

Lize told me that she really enjoys teaching reported speech. She insisted on me going to the weekly Grammar Workshop. She said that she always had a great group of keen students who wanted to improve their grammar skills.

The students reported that Lize is a phenomenal grammar teacher and that they thoroughly enjoy her grammar guidance every Thursday. They proclaimed that she always makes different grammar points easier to understand and put into practice. They regretted that the workshop wasn’t everyday.

If you are not confident in Grammar or feel that you simply want to fine tune grammar skills – make sure you go to the Grammar Workshops on Thursday in Room 5.

Snap! Snap! Crocodile Alert!!!

Group group

What are the class doing?  It’s okay the crocodile is safe and was cubed and put in a delicious marinade!

crocodile meat

We designed three different marinades from fresh ingredients and left the crocodile to tenderise overnight.  We had the stir-fried cubed meat as a kebab with healthy fresh vegetables and rice.  Our chef Karina showed us how to present the rice in an attractive way using a measuring cup to form half a sphere.  This is why she is the professional! Fabulous Karina!

Students thought that the crocodile meat was similar in taste to chicken but had the texture of fish.  It is a delicacy in Australia and all the students had a try!  It’s good to try new foods when we visit a different country!

Last Day for Cambridge Students

Good Luck and Farewell to our beautiful Cambridge students as it was their last day today. We wish you all the best for your up and coming exams next week and we hope you all do extremely well.

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.

Conversation Club

Lexis Noosa students enjoying their conversation club by speaking English and playing Uno and Jenga. What better way to spend the afternoon then trying some delicious Australian food, practicing English and making new friends.

Which game do you enjoy playing?……

Yoga in the park

This week our Wednesday afternoon activity was Yoga at Pinaroo Park. It’s always such a great activity for the students to do after a long day of concentration in the classroom.

Yoga, apart from being a super fun activity also has many other benefits. Yoga can increase energy & concentration levels, be a great form of stress relief and best of all is a form of physical activity.

Yoga 17.5

Hope everyone enjoyed their relaxing afternoon!

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.
