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.
