TEACHER’S BIO

  • LANGUAGES YOU SPEAK?

English, rusty intermediate French and very basic Japanese.

  • I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE…?

A teacher! From the age of six, I dreamt of handing out gold and silver stars to my imaginary student.

  • WHEN YOU ARE IN BRISBANE, DON’T MISS OUT….

On Lamington National Park, to see the cute pademelons (some of the smallest of the macropods).

  • BRISBANE BEST KEPT SECRET IS…

The Asian restaurants at Warrigal Square and Runcorn Plaza. Food paradise!

  • I’LL BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW…

I’m half Chinese, a quarter French, an eighth English and an eighth German.

  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO?

Have a YouTube party and sing along to my favourite sings.

  • HAVE YOU EVER LIVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

Yes, I spent two years teaching in Japan, and four years teaching and studying in the UK, I loved it all.

  • WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINATION?

I love Port Douglas in Australia – tropical rainforest and beautiful beaches. I also love Borneo for jungles.

  • WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER?

So I could meet people from all over the world, share my love of language, and hand out stickers and stamps to my students!

  • WHAT IS YOUR ENGLISH LEARNING TIP?

Watch English TV with the subtitles on. Read and listen at the same time. Fluency and accuracy are equally important.

Student of the Month

Each month, teachers at Lexis Brisbane nominate the “Student of the Month”. That student is someone who works really hard (inside and outside of the classroom), someone who is really committed to their studies.

In June, that student was Mustika (Ika) from Ben’s Upper-Intermediate class. Ika goes to G.I.L and workshops after class and has made so much progress!

Ika is about to graduate and start a new adventure: Childcare Studies.

A message from Ali (homestay mum)

Ali has been with the Lexis Homestay Program for the last year. She took her students out  to South Bank.
Ali said “it was lovely to hear from Flavia that she is having the best time ever with us. The girls are having a ball and great to hear them laughing. It’s good having the two students at our home so thank-you Teresa as I’m having as much fun with them.” Photo: Ali, Flavia from Brazil and Matsuka from Japan.
