Eight Days until Exam Day

Michelle’s FCE students are preparing for their final exam next Thursday. The Whiteboard display about different writing genres turned into a piece of art and teacher Phil is so impressed that he takes a snapshot. Keep up the good work everyone!

Thursday afternoon at Lexis Noosa

Morning and option classes have finished but there is still a lot going on at Lexis Noosa on  Thursday afternoon and the school is vibrant and filled with life.

Teacher Kerri is preparing her lessons. Candice is visiting  after an amazing tour around Australia for two months and catches up with Enrique who has also returned from holidays this week to continue his studies in Anjali’s IELTS class. Miho and Rei are revising their morning lesson while enjoying the afternoon sun in the courtyard. Chie, Mana and Koki  are doing homework in the GIL Room. Cara is overseeing a Ping Pong Tournament and Kirsten is teaching a CAE Workshop.

It is wonderful to see Lexis students learning AND playing together!

Cambridge Exam Season

The Cambridge Exam Season has started at Lexis Noosa. Cambridge students from Noosa and Sunshine Coast Campuses took their speaking exams last Saturday followed by the written FCE exam today at Australis Lake Resort. Well done everyone! Good luck to our CAE students tomorrow and our CPE group on Thursday!

Something happy to start the day

Please contact Mya at Lexis Noosa Reception for more information!!

Student Profile: Nicolas Boulanger

Today I sat down with student Nicolas Boulanger to find out about his time at Lexis Noosa.

Where are you from: Ermeton-Sur-Biert, in Belgium
Which program are you studying: I’m in the Teen Activity Program – first I did TAP Surf, and now I’m doing TAP General. In total I am here for 6 weeks (this is week 5) – I am on summer holidays from my school in Belgium.
Why did you choose to come to Australia to learn English: My friends have gone to England and America to study and I wanted to go somewhere different. And I love Australia.
Why did you choose Lexis?: My parents found out about Lexis and thought it would be a good idea. It was a great idea!
What do you like to do in Noosa: Hang out with my friends, go surfing and being outdoors.
What is your favourite thing about Lexis Noosa?: The teachers, they are close to their students, they’re approachable. They discuss with me, how and why, not just ‘at’ me. I like their style of teaching.
What do you like to do in Belgium: I’m on the National Baseball Team, so I play a lot of baseball and train a lot too.
Do you have any siblings (brothers or sisters)?: I have a little sister, she is 11 years old
Do you have a life motto?: If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done

Conversation club is growing!!

So many happy, smiling faces at Conversation Club today!!!

We played our version of ‘Celebrity Heads’ – with many many laughs!
It turns out that asking “What colour am I?” is not going to help you work out that you’re Brad Pitt…

Healthy Eating – no cook dessert!

Chia seeds, both coconut milk and water, a little sugar and some finely diced banana and pineapple…. whisk, leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to set and – bam! Easy to make, healthy, ‘no cook’ dessert!!
(it tastes waaaaaay better than it looks, I promise!)

Even Mya – the world’s worst cook and junk food addict thinks she might make it at home!!

Many many thanks to the wonderful Isabelle for her recipe!

Jenga Marathon!

Conversation club is growing – and boy are we having some fun!!
Yesterday we played ‘Jenga’ (remove a block and put it on the top without tipping over the other blocks) – every block removed had a question to be answered.
Some were easy, some were more difficult….

My favourite?
Would you prefer to be rich but not find true love, or be poor and have true love?

You’d be surprised who chose to be poor!
