Say Cheeeese!!!

Lexis Noosa students had a great afternoon tasting some of Australia’s awesome cheeses along with a little bit of wine of course!

4.5 4

MERSEY VALLEY CHEDDAR

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

TRILOGY CLUB CHEDDAR

This trilogy club cheese takes vintage cheddar and pairs it with Mediterranean-inspired ingredients like summery herbs and sundried tomatoes. Just one nibble will have you hooked. The South Cape Trilogy range includes 3 cheeses, each cleverly combined with a selection of unique flavours.

JINDI TRIPLE CREAM BRIE

As a dessert cheese, the Jindi Triple Cream is very rich and full flavoured. Its butter- like texture melts in your mouth and the taste lingers for some time. Beneath the white mould bloom lies a glorious golden interior.

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth and creamy texture.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour. Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

KENILWORTH CHEESE

Cheese has been made in Kenilworth for more than 60 years. The Cochrane family, dairy farmers in the region for six generations. They recently purchased the Kenilworth cheese factory and it is now known as Kenilworth Dairies. The Cochrane farms provide the freshest, highest quality milk from their farms, a short distance away in the Mary Valley. This milk is made into the delicious cheese, yoghurt, mousse, and ice cream produced at Kenilworth Dairies.

Hope you all had a great afternoon. Enjoy the long weekend

Tie Dye Party

We had such a wonderful night at the Lexis Noosa Tie Dye Party!

Our Lexis Noosa students spent the previous afternoon dying their own T-shirts beautiful different colours so that we could wear them to the Cornerstone Pub for our Tie Dye Party. Looks like everyone was having a wonderful night making friends, listening to music and playing pool.

Looking forward to our next student night!! 🙂

Lexis Style

Assessment and Reporting Lexis Style

At Lexis, our 360 degree support is also reflected in our Assessment and reporting.  On arrival, student visa holders are given a detailed study plan during their initial interview which is given to their teachers and also forwarded to their agents.

During their second week, all students are given a feedback survey and asked to report on their class, their teacher and the administration staff. We also check if everything is fine with their accommodation and host families. For our student visa holders, this is followed up by a personal interview with the academic manager. This way, any initial problems or worries can be resolved quickly and efficiently.

Every four weeks, all students will have a personal interview with their class teacher and receive a full written report.

Sam and student

The teacher will address each English skill, and how the student is progressing compared to their initial testing and for the level that they are studying in. They are given academic advice and suggestions for GIL (guided individual learning). The student also completes a report on their teacher and learning. This 360 degree reporting enables us to monitor our students and our academic teaching methods and ensure the best possible outcomes.

Every student will receive a final exit report and certificate in their last week.  The student is asked to complete a detailed exit survey to give us feedback on all areas of their Lexis Noosa experience including accommodation and activities.

Never Too Late To Learn English

Sabina and Jacki

Jaqui and Sabina are studying at Lexis Noosa in General English.  Although it’s a while for both of them since they have studied they are both enjoying the challenge.  Jaqui enjoys the friendly atmosphere of the classes and thinks that speaking with different nationalities is a good idea.  Sabina has been away for the weekend with students of different ages and is looking forward to travelling around Australia after she finishes her course.  Both students have tried different sporting activities and Jaqui has enjoyed the beach lifestyle in Noosa.
