Suzie and students

Sayaka Nagano and Mika Aruga met in 2008 whilst studying at Lexis English Noosa in teacher Suzies class. They are still best friends and returned to Noosa to celebrate ten years since their wonderful student days here. There were tears and smiles when they discovered that Suzie was still teaching here and it was a beautiful reunion. Sayaka married an Australian and has settled in Sydney working as a Kindy teacher. Mika lives in Tokyo and works as a medical engineer.  They said that they have still kept in touch with many of their international classmates and will never forget their  happy carefree days as a student in Noosa.

Thank you for coming in and sharing your story with us Sayaka and Mika.

Student Profile – Dominik from Switzerland

Dominik first came to Lexis Noosa in 2017 and studied for a few months with Charmaine in General English.  He was a great asset to have in the Cooking Option in the afternoon class. He shared his expert knowledge with the class and he improved his vocabulary about food.  After he left he went travelling to Cairns and then south all the way to Kangaroo  Island.

Photo: Dominik in Cooking Class July 2017 & a visit to Cairns in August 2017.

Dominik always had a dream to work in Europe in a group of international chefs.  He worked with world renowned chef Anton Mosmann in London making and serving food at Wimbledon Tennis and at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

Photo: Dominik working at Wimbledon and Tottenham Hotspur in London.

Domink returned to Lexis Noosa in September 2018 to further improve his English and to travel some more around Australia.  He did a road trip to Agnes Water last weekend and he has more travel dreams to fulfill.
