The big G20 summit starts in Brisbane this weekend, and Brisbane is celebrating by holding a huge number of fun events! This is not a weekend you want to spend at home- too many things to see and do!
Starting Friday night, just down the road from the school we have the Brisbane Indie Twilight Markets. People will he selling cute handmade things like baby clothes, bags, jewellery, clothes and much more. More details here.
And if you want more shopping- maybe looking for some cheap furniture for a new house? Or some fun second-hand clothes? All over Brisbane there will be hundreds of Garage Sales on Saturday with people selling cheap things they no longer need. Go to the website here to find garage sales near you!
Saturday afternoon will also feature an awesome Breakdance Jam! More than 100 breakdancers from all over Australia will be coming to Brisbane to perform on Saturday afternoon in King George Square. A brilliant free event. Details here.
Finally, if you still have energy to party on Sunday, there will be another big free event for the G20 summit- Spring Flare! Located in Riverstage in the Botanical Gardens, from what I can see the event will basically involve listening to crazy music from around the world and throwing colourful powder at each other. Sounds good to me! Details here.
Many more things on here in Brisbane- check out Weekend Notes for more. Have fun this weekend, everybody! Make the most of your days off- go do something exciting! :)

We’ve had a relaxed, friendly morning here at Lexis Brisbane with a neat set of three students beginning their studies. We’ve been lucky enough to already get to know Marcello and Pio from Italy and Stefan from Switzerland. Welcome guys! We already feel like you’re at home :)
Teacher Melissa was elated today when her IELTS class surprised her with a delicious birthday cake. What lovely students! Happy birthday Melissa!
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!

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!
