Lexis Brisbane is hosting a Big Cake Bake this year to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross. Students and teachers will bring in some baked treats for the event tomorrow. ‘Cake eaters’ will give gold coin donations and all money raised will be donated to the Red Cross.
It is Tuyen’s last week here at Lexis Brisbane so she brought in a suitcase of goodies and trinkets – many of which were hand made in Vietnam – to sell to the other students. .
Our Intermediate student Akira loves his teacher and class so much that he used his visual art skills to create these great caricatures. As you can see, he has a real gift for drawing. The likeness is amazing! Thanks Akira, this is a special gift for your teacher Ben!

On this fine, but cool and windy Monday we are pleased to welcome: Haruka, Yuiko, Ibuki and Kana from Japan; Basil from Switzerland; Rafael, Amanda and Patricia from Brazil; and Jiae and Daesang from South Korea.
We hope you have an amazing time studying at Lexis English and enjoy your stay in Australia.
As you may already know, tomorrow is the Brisbane Royal Exhibition holiday, also known as people’s day at the Ekka. The Ekka is an institution in Brisbane culture and has many different activities and shows to entice people of all interests. So don’t just waste time at home tomorrow watching TV, get to the Ekka practice English and have a good time :)
The easiest way to get there is by train, simply ask an attendant at your local station for directions to the Ekka.
Yesterday a small group of students enjoyed a look into the history of Brisbane on a city hall tour. It’s only a 2 minute walk from the school and best of all, it’s free!
