Cheese Tasting

Today our Lexis Noosa students tried 6 different types of Australian and New Zealand cheeses. I wonder what they will think?.?.?

And the winner was…… Mango and Macadamia Cheese!

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE – Australia

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 creamy texture.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT – Australia

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.

 

MAINLAND EPICURE – New Zealand

Our most intensely flavoured cheese – a block of Mainland Epicure cheese has a strong flavoursome bite to it and firm, crumbly texture. This makes it a memorable cheese for those who don’t compromise on taste.

KENILWORTH – Sunshine Coast

A unique blend of mango pulp and macadamia nuts. This cheese is very different and something that every cheese lover should try!

 

MERSEY VALLEY – Australia

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.

KING ISLAND DOUBLE BRIE – Australia

A flagship in the premium Black Label range. This Double Brie blends a rich, creamy Brie style cheese with the unique flora of the earthy Brevi culture to give added complexity to both its aroma and flavour. Made with high butterfat King Island milk, the result is a very special artisan cheese.

Courtyard Fun!

It’s always fun to see our classes use the courtyard to do fun English activities for the students.

Today we had our Elementary classes, Pre-Intermediate classes and Intermediate classes using the courtyard at the same time. Such a fun way to learn English!

Hardworking and Hilarious Option Classes.

This afternoon I had the pleasure of going to all of our Option classes to check in and see how everyone is doing.

All I received was smiles and laughs. 🙂

Our current option classes are:

  • Grammar with the amazing Lize.
  • Current Affairs with the elegant Annette.
  • Customer Service with Kerri the elite laugh machine.
  • Reading and Writing with the radiant Eileen.
  • Survival Speaking with hilarious Kirsten.

Keep studying and having fun.

If you need help or assistance with anything don’t be afraid to come into Reception and ask our amazing staff.

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?

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!
