Meet our awesome-sauce Teacher Sam!

 

Introducing one of our (best looking) Lexis English Noosa Teachers. SAM THE MAN

We sat down and asked the hard questions to our  English Teacher Sam to find out a little bit more about him.

What Languages do you speak? 

I am semi fluent in British English and my Australian English is at an Upper Intermediate Level.

I’ll bet you didn’t know that… 

I am a qualified tour cruise operator and work in the heart of Noosa. O’ Captain, My Captain 🙂

What places have you lived in?

Los Angeles, Heathrow Airport, Singapore Airport, Sydney (Everywhere), Adelaide and of course Noosa.

If you weren’t a teacher what would you be?

I would definitely have a career that mixes Entertaining and Language/History. So probably travelling around Europe as a tour guide, partying only once a year 😉

On the weekend you’ll find me?

Working on a boat or contemplating writing my novel underneath a tree in the middle of a park somewhere in the heart of Noosa.

What is Noosa’s best kept secret?  

Rumba Wine Bar, somewhere along Hasting Street.

What is your favourite food?

I EAT ANYTHING…

What is your favourite pastime?

Making Gelato for a living.

What is your English tip? 

Watch a movie in English without subtitles and write down any words you know or think you know. Before you watch the movie again, see if you can write a brief summary of what happens to each character in the film. Then watch again with subtitles and you’ll probably be quite close with your synopsis.

Particularly, if it is a Superhero Movie.

We hope you enjoyed getting to know Sam one of our Legendary General English Teachers at Lexis English Noosa. 

‘Tis the Season

This morning the Lexis Noosa Sunset class students celebrated the 1st of December by making some Christmas pancakes! Enjoying their pancakes with plenty of toppings. They had a choice of strawberries, banana, blueberries, nutella, cream, maple syrup and chocolate chips….YUM.

Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas pancakes and are all full and ready for a great afternoon of study before you get excited for the weekend.

Flourine the pancake maker and Kaoru having a great morning.
