IELTS

Sergio, from Spain, graduates from Elizabeth and Julia’s IELTS class. It has been an absolute joy having him here at Lexis, he is a friendly student who is always smiling and full of positive energy. His participation and efforts in class were always greatly appreciated by his teachers and they will miss having him in class, nearly as much as we will miss seeing his cheery face around campus!!

Elisa, from Italy, graduates from Elizabeth and Julia’s IELTS class. It has been wonderful having as a student at Lexis; she has a beautiful personality and was always lovely to be around. Her teachers thank her for all her hard work and determination and say she should be very proud of her progress. We wish you the very best for the future, we are sure you will succeed in whatever you do!

Silvan

Cristina, from Spain, graduates from Serena’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has worked extremely hard in her 12 weeks here and shown great interest in the language. Her exams marks improved each week and she graduates with an A, well done Cristina! We hope you enjoy your time at Lexis Maroochydore!

Desiree, from Switzerland, graduates from our Pre-Intermediate class. Her teacher Serena says she participated well in all class activities and worked well with her classmates. She was only with us a short time but she achieved great results in her exams and graduates with an A! Good luck for the future Desiree!

Silvan, from Switzerland, graduates from Serena’s Pre-Intermediate class. It was a real pleasure having him here at Lexis; he has a great sense of humour and a good attitude to learning and interacting with fellow students. In his 8 weeks here he has made brilliant progress and we are sure will continue to do well in the future!

Elian

Elian, from Switzerland, graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class. She has only been with us at Lexis for 3 weeks but we have seen big improvements in all areas,  in particular her speaking and listening ability. We hope you enjoyed your time here and wish you the very best for the future!

Oceane

Oceane, from France, graduates from Adrienne’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has improved in all areas of her English, particularly her grammar and writing skills. We hope you are able to find a job here where you are able to continue practicing your English, and wish you all the best for your next adventure!

Laurine, from Switzerland, graduates from Adrienne’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has worked very hard in her 4 weeks here and should be very proud of her achievements.

We will miss your sunny personality and hope you take it wherever you go!

Dano

Dano, from Switzerland, graduates from Kristy’s Intermediate class. He has been a great student who always seeks to understand anything he is unsure of. He is brilliant at making conversation and tries very hard to speak fluently. It has been a pleasure having you here at Lexis! We hope you enjoy using your new language on your travels!

Brice, from France, graduates from Mel’s Upper Intermediate class. He should be extremely proud of his progress at Lexis over the past 17 weeks; starting in Pre-Intermediate and working his way up to Upper Intermediate! Mel says his wonderful sense of humour made a great contribution to the classroom dynamics and he always asked intelligent questions in order to expand his vocabulary. He was also three time champion of our Table Tennis Tournament, so his departure does at least now mean someone else can take the title! It has been lovely knowing you Brice, you will be missed!

Jewellery Making! 24 January

Yesterday we got creative with Jewellery Making!

Myself and Lexis teacher Adrienne demonstrated net wrap pendants for our morning and afternoon groups!

It can be a little confusing to follow at the start but really easy and fun once you know how!

Some students decided instead to do their own designs by feeding the shells and stones onto the thread; much simpler but still beautiful!

It was then up to the students if they wanted to make them into bracelets, anklets, necklaces, key chains or just a pretty decoration / keepsake!
