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.

Ammann Family

Lexis Noosa has had the pleasure of a wonderful family from Switzerland joining our language school as part of the student body for the past three weeks. On Friday, we farewell the Ammann Family as their time remaining in Australia draws close to the end.

Ammann Family

Urs, Eliane, Lisa, Beatrice and Michelle Ammann

They have had a wonderful adventure travelling around Australia and to add to their adventures, their Teacher Jan took them to Acres Nursery where they were able to listen to, and learn about some species of Australian Native Bees.

The excursion was extremely enjoyable and presented a wonderful language  opportunity with lots of new vocabulary about the Australian environment and the loss of bee habitat.

Kayaking

Friday afternoon 30 lucky Lexis Noosa students Kayaked their way into the long weekend! It was such a perfect activity to do on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The students got the hang of it after a while but it was hilarious to hear them all complaining because of how sore their arms were all 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.
