Let’s Learn About BRIS-VEGAS!! 🏢 🏫 â¤ï¸ï¸

It’s the first week of our new Option Classes, and what a fun first week it has been!

Today as part of Laura’s Discover Australia class, she took her students over to the iconic Brisbane City Hall – one of the oldest buildings in town. There, students attended the 100% Brisbane exhibit at the museum where they learned all about the history, listened to famous stories and other fun facts about our beautiful city. ❤

They even have “smelly tubes” that produce scents that remind you of Brisbane. Such fragrances included “Thunder Storm”, “Frangipani Flowers” and “Fresh Grass”. Kind of weird but VERY COOL at the same time, don’t you think?! 😀

Students had to also take notes of what they learned throughout the lesson, as they had to answer a questionnaire about Brisbane. Who thinks they can score 100%? 😉

Lexis Brisbane’s Very Own Medical Professionals! ðŸ’ª

Lexis Brisbane has recently started a new English for Medical Professionals (EMP) course, which has gained a lot of interest. This course is designed for those who are looking to work, or have been working in the medical profession – such as nurses, chiropractors and even doctors!

We currently have 4 lovely young ladies taking part in this course, which commenced again from today. They are learning from Lexis’ very own English teacher/chemist Catherine, who has years of experience in this field! 🙂 Wow!!

If you’re interested in taking this course, talk to one of our friendly staff who can help you with your options! 🙂

☕️ A little bit fancy… ðŸ°

Recently, our Intermediate classes have been learning all about ‘Indirect Questions’ such as “Could you pass me the tea?” or “Would you be able to cut me a slice of cake?”. Today in the student kitchen, they practiced using this very polite style of speech at the Lexis Tea Party, where even the Queen herself made an appearance. What a great idea! 🙂
