IMG20180817121950.jpg

Lorenza, from Italy, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. We have really enjoyed having her here the past 6 weeks. Michelle describes her as a happy and committed student. She asks excellent questions, works hard and always make an effort to speak with others. Her participation in class discussions has been productive and she was an asset to the class. I have personally loved getting to know her at the out of class activities and will be missing her next week! Enjoy Brisbane Lorenza and come visit us before you leave Australia!

Alya, from Bali, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. It has been a joy to have her here with us at Lexis! She has been a very polite, positive and kind student. Michelle really enjoyed the enthusiasm and creativity she brought to class. We hope you enjoyed your time here and we see you in Byron again one day!

Izumi, from Japan, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has made brilliant progress in her short 6 weeks with us, starting in Elementary and graduating Pre-Intermediate with an A! Well done Izumi, all your hard work and efforts have paid off! Good luck for the future!

Asana, from Japan, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. She has made excellent progress in all areas of her English during her 12 weeks with us. When she arrived she could barely have a conversation but now she can easily express herself and is always lovely to talk with. We wish you all the best for the future Asana!

Catalina, from Chile, graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. Michelle says she has a great attitude and humour and has really loved having her in class. She should be very proud of all the progress she has made, particularly with her speaking and grammar. Best wishes Catalina, you will be missed!

INTERMEDIATE

Fuku, from Japan, graduates from Mel and Julia’s Intermediate class. It has been an absolute pleasure having her here for the second year in a row! She is a very interesting and interested person who made an effort to talk with all other students and staff. She was an excellent student who worked hard to improve her English. Her positive attitude was always appreciated in class and she will be missed by all! We hope to see you again next year Fuku!

Pinky (Jinyapa), from Thailand, graduates from Mel and Julia’s Intermediate class. She is a lovely, positive, friendly student who made a lot of friends during her time with us. Her knowledge of grammar is excellent, and it’s no surprise she graduates with a well deserved A! Good luck with your yoga course in Melbourne, we hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Australia!

aDVANCED

Daniel (Bartosz), from Poland, graduates from Paul’s Advanced class. He has only been at Lexis a short 2 weeks but Paul really enjoyed having him in class. His command of the English language is excellent and across all skill areas he’s shown himself to be competent. He made valuable contributions to lessons and the class will all miss his enthusiasm and sense of humour. Luckily this is not goodbye as he will return to us in September for the Cambridge course!

Isabella, from Brazil, graduates from Paul’s Advanced class. She has made brilliant progress since first starting at Lexis in January, working her way up from Pre-Intermediate all the way to Advanced! She is a lovely, warm person and we are very glad she chose Lexis for her studies! Well done on all your achievements Isabella! Enjoy the rest of your time in Australia ❤
