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.

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.

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).

Rainer 2

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

Akiko studied General English at Lexis Noosa for 17 weeks back in 2015. After her studies Akiko completed farm work to get her second year visa to then move up to Cairns. In Cairns Akiko got a housekeeping job and worked on an overnight boat for a year. The job was 5 days on and 3 days off and her job consisted of housekeeping duties, kitchen hand and training for her dive master to then be a tour guide for the scuba divers.

Akiko said that the best part of her job was the free scuba diving everyday!

Travelling Australia

The afternoon option class Travel Australia have enjoyed sharing travel stories and advice.  They explore different places to stay as well as information and tips on staying healthy as they travel. Many students plan a two or three month holiday after their English courses.  Ramona recently returned and met up with fellow student Patrick to swap stories.  Ramona said that three months travelling around Australia was not enough as she still wanted to visit Tasmania.  She is planning to return in 18 months with her sister and study more and travel. The best tip she gave Patrick was not to drive at night on rural roads.  She mentioned that there was so much amazing wildlife that can be injured at night.maria blog

Their teacher Maria spent 2015 with her family driving around Australia and doing farm and voluntary work.  There is also an on-site travel agent at Noosa who has a wealth of knowledge to share.  It’s a great opportunity for students to plan their adventures!
