Today’s Jobs & Job Workshop

Every Tuesday at 2pm in Room 2 & 4:30pm in Room 5, a teacher helps students write their resumes and job application letters, as well as give advice on the best places to find work.  It’s a great free service that Lexis Brisbane offers its students! 🙂

Ben’s Grammar Tip of the Week

Wish

jini

Wish can be complicated

*we have to look what type of wish it is so we can use the correct tense.

In English we use “incorrect” grammar to show that something is unreal or untrue.

  • Wish in present (state) = Past Simple

I wish I had a car

  • Wish in present (activity) = Past continuous

I wish I were/was eating a cake

  • Wish in past = Past Perfect 

I wish I had not gone to New Zealand

  • Wish for annoyance = Would+ inf

I wish it would stop raining

!!!So make sure you think about the type of wish before you say it!!!

unnamed

Every year, Lexis Brisbane hosts this event to help the Red Cross and this year will not be different.

What do you need to do? Sing up at reception with what you are bringing and on the 19th give your “baked” goodies to reception. We’ll meet at 10.30 and 3.30 in the student kitchen to share and taste all the cakes – yum!

If you can’t bake, or don’t have the facilities to do it, you can buy something and bring it anyways! If that is not possible, that’s okay too. What’s important is that we all participate and cooperate.
