Cheese Tasting

Today our Lexis Noosa students tried 6 different types of Australian and New Zealand cheeses. I wonder what they will think?.?.?

And the winner was…… Mango and Macadamia Cheese!

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE – Australia

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth creamy texture.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT – Australia

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour.  Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

 

MAINLAND EPICURE – New Zealand

Our most intensely flavoured cheese – a block of Mainland Epicure cheese has a strong flavoursome bite to it and firm, crumbly texture. This makes it a memorable cheese for those who don’t compromise on taste.

KENILWORTH – Sunshine Coast

A unique blend of mango pulp and macadamia nuts. This cheese is very different and something that every cheese lover should try!

 

MERSEY VALLEY – Australia

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

KING ISLAND DOUBLE BRIE – Australia

A flagship in the premium Black Label range. This Double Brie blends a rich, creamy Brie style cheese with the unique flora of the earthy Brevi culture to give added complexity to both its aroma and flavour. Made with high butterfat King Island milk, the result is a very special artisan cheese.

Graduating Students

  All the best in the future and always keep in touch!

Today we had our Elementary classes, Pre-Intermediate classes and Intermediate classes using the courtyard at the same time. Such a fun way to learn English!

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.

Finding Love at Lexis Noosa

 We love hearing stories that warm our hearts.

Rainer Keller was a student at Lexis English Noosa that studied the Cambridge CAE course with our wonderful teacher Phil back in 2014. Rainer said that when he was studying at Lexis he met the love of his life Keiko who was also studying at Lexis. We are so glad that you both found happiness together.

Rainer 1

This is the beautiful email we received from Rainer Keller:

I’m writing to you 4 years after I left Noosa because Lexis changed my life forever and I wanted to share this with you. At school I met a wonderful girl from Japan, who became my wife just 2 years later. This is me together with my wife Keiko Okuyama at our wedding party in Japan, and 3 other former Lexis students (Miiku Sako and Ayane Kawagoshi from Japan & Donghoon Lee from South Korea).

Rainer 2

Now they are happy parents with a gorgeous baby girl, Yuna.
