Farewell Krystian!

Today we said goodbye to one of our excellent Lexis students, Krystian.  Krystian is from Poland and has studied with us at Lexis Brisbane for 1 year!  In that time, he improved his English skills so much!

“When I first came here, I couldn’t speak English.  Now, I can.”  – Krystian

He also was a member of our Lexis English football team.  He has not only been a great student, but he has also become a great friend to many of us.  Best of luck Krystian.  Come and visit us again soon!

What’s On in Brisbane!

Brisbane is as usual a busy little city this weekend, with lots to do and see! Get out and see some some of these awesome events :)

Thursday nights- Board Games and Burgers at Grill’d. Eat an excellent burger and play some your old childhood board games- or try a new one- at Grill’d in Fortitude Valley. Try the Big Queenslander. It’s my favourite. More details here.

Oktoberfest will continue to be a wonderful feast of beer and pretzels and bratwurst. And I’ve heard that a bunch of Lexis Students already plan to go Saturday- join the fun! More details here.

It’s also the last weekend to catch a movie at the Italian Film Festival. Nobody does romance or drama like the Italians, so go along and see a wonderful Italian movie this weekend! (Also excellent English practice, reading subtitles!) Details here.

Also this weekend, for those who love to eat and drink (like me!) we have the marvelous Food and Wine Festival. Wonderful food, lovely wine, great coffee, and a relaxing day. Details here.

Have fun everyone! Hope all of you enjoy the weekend!
