We had a blast yesterday in Breakfast and Coffee club with special guests Charles and Zara from Backpacker World Travel! We played lots of silly games to win some fantastic  travel prizes including a free trip to Fraser Island!

All together our students won over $4000 worth of prizes!

Charles and Zara started the Club with a fantastic presentation. They talked in detail about all the beautiful must see destinations in Australia and the exclusive discounts for Lexis Students.

Zara shared with us her personal photographs and  unforgettable experience traveling the Outback and described the chills she had when visiting Uluru Rock.  This is must for anyone wanting to learn about Australian Aboriginal culture and traditions.

After the presentation it was time to have lots of fun playing games and eating some sweet breakfast treats!

Coffee Club! 10th October

Yesterday at Coffee Club we played 3 variations of Uno!

Between us we had three different sets of rules we play by, so we thought it would be fair to have a turn with each!

We started with my rules (the official Uno rules 😉 ), then Marta explained the Italian rules to us: you can put down after forfeit cards and also put down all your cards of any colour at once if they’re the same number.

We then played by Lydie and Charlotte’s Swiss rules, where you can put down at any time if you have the same colour and number; a much faster paced game but slightly confusing to then know who’s turn it is (for me at least, who lost!)

Coffee Club! 5th September

It was great to have lots of our new students come along for Coffee Club today!

For a lot of them it was the first time they tried the popular Australian chocolate treat Tim Tams; the feedback was of course positive!

We played Uno and then Jenga with questions! This is always a good game for getting to know each other as each block has a different question on that the students have to read out and answer!

I left them all planning their night out to Cheeky Monkeys! Have fun guys, I hope class isn’t too much of a struggle for you tomorrow!
