Friday afternoon 30 lucky Lexis Noosa students Kayaked their way into the long weekend! It was such a perfect activity to do on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The students got the hang of it after a while but it was hilarious to hear them all complaining because of how sore their arms were all afternoon!
A huge welcome to our new starters for this week!
Weekly we are welcoming students from all over the world at Lexis English & today we are lucky enough to have Alexandre & Nicole from Brazil, Antoine from France and Corinne, Dario, Fisnik, Aline & Manuel from Switzerland.
We hope that you all have a great time here at Lexis Noosa and get to make some awesome memories while you are in Australia.
It was a stressful couple of hours at our Noosa campus yesterday. Our students and teachers were up against each other attempting to take the title of the greatest table tennis player. Michael was dominating every round, and finally after many tense games claimed victory!!
What a fantastic Easter break we all had out in the beautiful Noosa sunshine!!! Back to reality and it’s awesome to meet with our new happy starters. Welcome to the sunshine!!
In our Upper Intermediate class we have been graced with students from a number of countries. Having such diversity is incredibly useful because we are able to expand our understanding of different cultures as well as cultural norms. We decided to pair up and have a serious discussion about these “differences” and hopefully discover some similarities in the process. We hope you will feel more educated about the differences after reading this. And we hope like us, you’ll celebrate the diversity that we have on Earth.
