We had another exciting Monday today with 13 new students beginning at Lexis Brisbane. The students were at wonderfully varied levels of English expertise, from elementary to upper intermediate. So we can look forward to lots of progress for this group! We welcome Geisel, Stephania and Eusebio from Colombia, Ting-Yao from Taiwan, Yuna and Yuka from Japan, Hye Min, Jin Suk and Meong Hyeon from South Korea, and Anne, Benjamin, Caroline and Claudius from Germany! Welcome everyone! Can’t wait to see you flourishing in the school!

Lexis English teacher Eva and her class cooked up a Friday afternoon feast today- the smell of chicken curry was wonderful wafting through the halls! Eva, her fellow teacher Catherine and her class have been learning Food and Cooking vocabulary as part of their afternoon option class. This last few weeks they’ve made French crepes, Italian pasta, Mexican tacos, and Korean tteokbokki- foods from around the world!
Our students spent a wonderful afternoon yesterday wandering through the Botanical Gardens. The weather was perfect, we got to see crazy Australian birds and reptiles, and got some great photos! We finished our stroll by relaxing in the sun and eating strawberries, with some of the boys showing off their excellent soccer skills!
Today, the first day of spring, has brought 10 delightful new students to Lexis English Brisbane. We will look forward to seeing them blossom into their English study as Hiroki, from Japan, Elena from Italy, SeoHee, Hyun Mo, Charlotte, Shin and Jisoo from South Korea, Karolina from Poland, Jian Hong and Wei Hao from Taiwan, and Felix from Germany settle in to this beautiful city. Welcome students!
What course are you studying and for how long? Do you like your teachers?
I’m studying for 10 months and I’m in Intermediate level. I like the teachers and they teach very well. I can understand them.
Why did you choose Brisbane?
I want to visit the beautiful places Brisbane has. I’m happy with the people and the city. I finally found a job and I’m working at the moment.
What will you take back to Colombia with you?
I hope I’ll speak English well and know some things about other cultures, and I’ll bring a lot of pictures of the places I want to remember.
