Last Saturday, the Lexis English soccer team participated once again in the annual EA Soccer Tournament held at The University of Queensland, St Lucia. The boys have been training very hard in the weeks leading up to the competition, and it definitely paid off! They performed exceptionally well, entered the semi-finals and finished in 3rd place overall; the best result for the team to date. It was unfortunate to be beaten by the home team, but we couldn’t be prouder of our boys – an amazing effort indeed!
The 2015 Lexis English Soccer Team:
Juyoung(captain), Yusuke, Enrique, Gabriel, Koo, Kosei, Maycon, Minkyu, Santiago, Shoya, Son, Terry, Thiago, Walter and Yusuke!

New students Monday 27th July :)
Every Friday we farewell some of our awesome Lexis students. Today one of them was David from Spain, who dropped by my office on his way out to share some nice feedback about Lexis. After studying General English with us, his parting words were simple:
“Thank you! When I came here, I couldn’t speak English… and NOW I can!” – David (Spain)
Thank you David. We are glad to have helped you on your English journey. We wish you all the best for the future!
