Week 4:
The last Monday (26/9) of the month’s Grammar Workshop is all about the “Present Perfect Passive” tense. Wednesday (28/9), sign up with me (Tara) for our Photography Club afternoon. Let’s capture the beauty of Brisbane through the lens! If you don’t have a camera, you can still capture some nice photos on your phones! 🙂 This Thursday (29/9) the Drama Workshop makes a return. Come along to practice your English skills through improvisation and drama games. A lot of fun and laughs to be had – don’t be shy! To wrap up the week and the month of September, Friday (30/9)’s Cafe Conversation Club is back. Remember to sign up at Reception!


That’s it for the month! 🙂 Lexis Activities are a great way to meet new people and experience the hidden secrets of Brisbane. Have you seen something in Brisbane that you’d really love to do, but not sure how or when to do it? Then please come and talk to me (Tara) at Reception, and let me know! I’m always interested to hear your suggestions and ideas for future activities! Maybe we’ll include it on our upcoming calendar? 🙂

See you next month! 🙂
