Incredible Students

Introducing one of our incredible students at Lexis Noosa, Beatrice from Pre Intermediate.

Beatrice 1

My name is Beatrice, I’m French and I have lived in Italy for 34 years.  I learned English at school a long time ago and I sometimes attended English courses.  I speak French and Italian and I’d like to be able to think in and speak English too.

Beatrice 3

 I was worried about being an older student, but I am happy that my age is not a problem in Lexis. I am happy and comfortable in the school and have met some nice students.  At the moment my English is very bad, but I am sure that I am making progress with the lessons at Lexis.  I am looking forward to learning more English skills in the school.

Beatrice 2

To stay in Australia for 3 months I am going to try to get a job as a masseuse or a cleaner.  Any job will be good for me as long as I can improve my English at the same time.

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