Last Wednesday, a group of our Lexis medical professionals visited Life Flight’s helicopter base at Archerfield Aerodrome with their teacher Catherine.
Life Flight have over 130 medical crew and they perform over 4000 patient transfers a year! They attend to incidents such as natural disasters – particularly during the flood seasons, and even rescuing people stranded out at sea.
The aim of this trip was to understand how people in and around Brisbane are transported to hospital by helicopter in an emergency situation. Teacher Catherine took the students here as part of the Accident and Emergency unit; the unit they are currently studying in the EMP/OET course at Lexis Brisbane.
The group also got to see various rescue helicopters ranging in size, from the tiny “Squirrel” – which is used for training purposes, all the way to the massive $20 million AW139‘s!
This excursion was a great opportunity for our students, who are all practicing medicine back home in their countries. It gave them the opportunity to compare their own services with those used in Australia, and in particular – Queensland. What a fantastic idea, Catherine! We hope you all had fun!! 🙂
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%? 😉
Hey everyone! Happy Monday, and welcome back to another week at Lexis Brisbane. The June calendar is now ready for your viewing pleasure, so pencil in those dates as we have heaps happening this month!!
What else is on this month: Wednesday, 31st May:State of Origin! Make sure to wear maroon or blue to show your support for your favourite team. Staff are also encouraged to dress up! GO QUEENSLAND!!
Despite having only 3 students leave us today, it is still sad saying goodbye. We wish you all the very best of luck on your upcoming journeys, and we hope you had a wonderful time here at Lexis Brisbane. Please keep in touch!! ❤ ❤
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! 🙂
