Testimonial Wednesday – Santiago

We’re back with another student testimonial – let’s meet Santiago!
santiago 1

Santiago arrived in Australia from Colombia and joined Lexis Brisbane at the beginning of 2015. He has spent the last year learning not only English but also about Australia, a new way of life and most importantly himself. Santiago had big dreams before arriving to Australia, and has worked very hard every day since.

Santiago was a big believer in the English Only rule at Lexis, and always encouraged his friends and classmates to use English. He studied English back home in Colombia where he also completed the FCE exam, but said he regretted not coming here sooner! Just last week he completed the IELTS test and is now eagerly awaiting the results to arrive next week. “I’m feeling confident with the reading part, but I was a little nervous with the speaking part. Once I started though, I felt much better”. We’re confident you did well! 🙂

Before Santiago parted ways, we asked him a few questions regarding his time here and his thoughts about Brisbane. Here’s what he had to say…:

What courses did you do at Lexis English?
I did CAE, CPE and IELTS.

What do you think about your classes and teachers?
The classes are full of content and the teachers always try to find the way to transmit their knowledge to the students.

Why did you choose Brisbane? Are you happy with your choice?
Brisbane is a nice cosmopolitan city. I could meet people from all over the world. I find the Brisbane weather easier to cope with as well. I’d never regret choosing this city.

Where are you currently living in Brisbane? 
I’m currently sharing a house with 3 people close to the city.

What is your most memorable experience here in Brisbane/Australia?
There are heaps of memorable experiences. I can’t choose just one!

What are your plans for when you return to your home country?
I’m not actually returning to my country just yet. At least not for another 3 years.


Although his journey with us at Lexis Brisbane is over, another journey has begun. Santiago will be enrolled at QUT this July where he will be completing a degree in Business – how cool is that?!

Congratulations for achieving your goals, Santiago. We wish you the best of luck with your new journey! You are always welcome back to Lexis Brisbane any time. 🙂 Be sure to keep in touch!


If you would also like to write a testimonial about your time here at Lexis/Australia, see Tara at Reception and grab a questionnaire. We love hearing from you guys! 🙂
