BBQ Party @ KB’s!

Last night Lexis Noosa students enjoyed a BBQ and glow party at KB’s night club.

The BBQ started at 6pm. The students got to taste a traditional Aussie BBQ which consisted of sausages, meat patties, salads, chips and a whole lot of drinks 😉 !

Once the BBQ was done Student Uni Travel announced their competition winner. The students had to guess how many jelly beans were in a jar to win an all paid trip to Byron Bay.

Andrina

Congratulations to Andrina we hope you enjoy your free trip.

The students then went inside the nightclub to dance the night away at the glow party!

What a great night.

Cloe’s Lexis Noosa experience!

My name is Cloe Barnet, I am from Nendaz in Switzerland

CloeTestimonial

How did you find your first couple of weeks on the Noosa campus and Lexis?        

My first couple of weeks in Lexis was amazing! Everyone at Lexis was very welcoming and the weather was truly stunning.  I arrived in February and was surfing at Noosa beach in my very first week!  That was a pretty cool experience!

Why did you choose Noosa to study?

I really wanted to avoid an Australian capital city and Noosa is famous for amazing beaches which is what I was looking for!

What do you like most about Lexis and Noosa?

The teaching staff and support staff were really friendly to me and I like the chilled out environment of Noosa.

How is your classroom experience at Lexis?

I am studying towards my Cambridge Advanced Level Certificate and the classroom experience is really challenging however my teacher introduces interesting activities and games to assist in my learning.  

What are your future plans when you finish your Lexis English studies?

I am travelling to New Zealand when my course finishes and then I will return to Switzerland to commence my Bachelor in Zoology  

My passion is to work with polar bears and travel to Alaska to assist in the conservation challenges this amazing animal faces. 

What do you do in your spare time?

I like exploring so I have been through Fraser Island, Australia Zoo, through the amazing National Parks and beaches here and normally on a Thursday or Friday night I go out with my friends to dance and catch up!

Graduation!

Congratulations to our 7 Graduating students at Lexis Noosa this afternoon. We have Vera and Adilton from Elementary, Kanna from Pre Intermediate, Sibel, Stella and Nicolas from Intermediate and Chloe from FCE!

Goodluck with everything in the future!

What is Noosa’s best kept secret? Shhhhhhh……. Noosa’s best kept secret is the river mouth at sunset.

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.

Finding Love at Lexis Noosa

 We love hearing stories that warm our hearts.

Rainer Keller was a student at Lexis English Noosa that studied the Cambridge CAE course with our wonderful teacher Phil back in 2014. Rainer said that when he was studying at Lexis he met the love of his life Keiko who was also studying at Lexis. We are so glad that you both found happiness together.

Rainer 1

This is the beautiful email we received from Rainer Keller:

I’m writing to you 4 years after I left Noosa because Lexis changed my life forever and I wanted to share this with you. At school I met a wonderful girl from Japan, who became my wife just 2 years later. This is me together with my wife Keiko Okuyama at our wedding party in Japan, and 3 other former Lexis students (Miiku Sako and Ayane Kawagoshi from Japan & Donghoon Lee from South Korea).

Now they are happy parents with a gorgeous baby girl, Yuna.

 

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.

Cambridge Cruise

Couldn’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than with a beautiful sunset over the Noosa River!

 

And that’s exactly what our Cambridge students did yesterday afternoon 🙂

Our 7 Cambridge classes spent the afternoon/night getting to know each other better along with a couple of drinks and snacks while cruising down the beautiful Noosa River.

We hope you all had a wonderful time!

Welcome to Lexis Noosa

We hope you all enjoyed your afternoon at the park and have a wonderful time at Lexis Noosa!

Student Night @ KB’s

BBQ and Glow party at KB’s!

Student night started off with a great BBQ from 7pm – 9pm in the beer garden at KB’s. All of the students looked like they really enjoyed their meals along with a few beverages.

After the BBQ the students made their way into the club where things started to glow. They enjoyed many drinks while everyone started to paint each others faces with the glow paint.

At 9pm the big prize was drawn and the students were cheering while they patiently waited to see who the big winner was for the free Fraser Island Trip worth up to $500.00! After a lot of excitement the big winner was our Brazilian student Isabela. isabela winner

What a great turn out for our student night this week. The night was filled with lots of smiles, laughing and fun. Hope that you all had the best night and aren’t too tired for school today!

First Day

Welcome to all the new students at Lexis Noosa

Cam sep16

Yesterday Lexis Noosa was super excited to welcome 102 new students to the campus. Most of the students have enrolled to complete a 12 week Cambridge course finishing on the 24th November.

32 of these students have joined us to compete their General English courses and improve their English.

To celebrate in Lexis Noosa style, we made our way down to Lions Park for an Aussie BBQ, Cheers Mate!!

We hope that you enjoy your studies at Lexis Noosa and your time in beautiful Noosa.

Cambridge sunset cruise

Another fantastic sunset river cruise!

What a better way for all of the Cambridge students and teachers to bond and celebrate friendships than a beautiful sunset river cruise. Looks like everyone enjoyed their time and had loads of fun.

An incredible boat cruise finished off with an incredible sunset and lots of smiling faces!

Is it a bird. No is it a plane. No it’s a Lexis Cambridge student coming to school near you. 

Cambridge Mock Testing

Our Lexis English Cambridge students had their mock exam this morning in preparation for their final exam in August. This gives the students a chance to practice testing in a strict environment and also a perfect opportunity for the students to receive feedback from their lovely teachers.

Hoping everyone went well on their mock exam!

You are hired!

Our Focus CAE class is an ongoing class, working with Cambridge materials at an advanced level. Some of our students prepare for the exam, others just want to improve their English. Romain, who has attended this class for twelve weeks – and sat the CAE exam during that time –  presented his teachers Annette and Marie with this brilliant Letter of Application.

romain.jpg

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to apply spontaneously for an English teacher position in your language school in Noosa, far from the hustle and bustle of other cities. I have recently heard that the level was slipping and that you needed someone able to tip the balance.

Allowing for the fact that I have been studying for twelve weeks in your establishment, I have had the opportunity to gain valuable insight into how things work here. But more importantly, time is flying and it is high time I did something with my life.

I have a gut feeling that I would be suitable for this exhilarating and fulfilling (and lucrative?) job. Not only do I love to face challenges but I am also not afraid to roll up my sleeves when it is required. Furthermore, I can easily draw on my former experience. Indeed, I had to shoulder responsibilities throughout my whole career path.

It is certainly true that my application sounds a bit bold. Nevertheless, why should I play it safe? I am a risk-taker who lives his life to the full. What is more, it is often said that ‘the risk pays off’.

From my perspective, it is crystal clear that I am your best bet. Without willing to boast, I can tell the difference between the stocks and the shares in case some picky students would try to trick me. It cannot be denied that nowadays, this knowledge is of great importance.

Attending an interview at your earliest convenience would put me on cloud nine. For this reason, I look forward to a prompt reply, knowing that ‘no news is good news’.

Yours sincerely

Romain

 

 

Strange, Stranger, Strangest….. Who does it better?

FCE classes comparing notes after their grammar session today……. who really studies more than the other???

And who is the most eccentric teacher – Anne or Michelle???
