“I started teaching Kindergarten in Canada before moving to Japan to start a career in International Education. After 4 years in Japan, I travelled to Australia on a working holiday visa and ended up staying. While in Australia I have been fortunate to work as an English Teacher, TESOL Trainer and Academic Manager with some fantastic people and amazing students. My wife and I lived and worked in Brisbane for 12 years and decided to make a Tree Change and I was fortunate to join the Lexis Noosa Team in early 2018.”
Welcome to the team Chris and we hope you love working at Lexis English Noosa!
Lexis English Australia is over the moon with our rating from the ESL students.
ESL Education is one of the biggest agency’s that support Lexis English Australia with ongoing International students coming to Australia to learn or improve their English. The ESL Certificate of Excellence award is 100% based on student feedback’s so when Lexis Noosa received the ESL Certificate of Excellence award of 4.2 out of 5 the school was extremely proud.
Director of studies Becky Cantor very excited about the school’s award.
A huge congratulations to our 7 graduating students today at Lexis Noosa! We are so proud of these boys Mubarak, Faris, Mohammed, Hussain, Abdulkarim, Abdulaziz & Khalid. The Saudi Arabian boys will now go to Beckers to complete flight school for their Military. Goodluck for the future boys! We will all miss you here at Lexis Noosa.
We have a phenomenal Homestay Team at Lexis Noosa. Cathy, Simona and Mark are responsible for placing students with a suitable homestay family and they often perform miracles. As we love them we thought we’d share some information about them with you.
Cathy has been working here at Lexis Noosa for 10 years. She’s originally from Wales but moved to Australia 20 years ago. She enjoys her job because of the variety of tasks that it encompasses – no two days are the same. When she is not with us at work she is kept busy with her three teenage children. She loves living in Noosa because of the carefree and relaxed lifestyle it offers. She is passionate about the beach and watching surfing and she couldn’t imagine living and working in a more ideal place.
Simona moved to Noosa 4 months ago from London, where she lived for 7 years. She is originally from Romania and has been an intrepid traveller since she was quite young. When she was at university, she used to travel to the USA every summer on a “Work & Travel” program – this is one of the reasons she loves helping students find a perfect place to spend their time here in Noosa, she knows what it is like to be away from home for a period of time. She is thoroughly enjoying living in Noosa as she leads an active and healthy lifestyle.
Mark recently returned home to Australia after having lived in Canada for 2 years. While he was there he assisted Athletes with their accommodation at the Legacy Olympic Venue. He is an adrenaline junky and loves snowboarding, skydiving, climbing, bungee jumping and any other extreme sports that gives you that adrenaline kick. When he is not being and adventurer or assisting students with their accommodation, he is a DJ. In fact, he’ll be playing at Cafe Le Monde (a very trendy bar/restaurant on Hastings street) this Friday.
