Lexis Brisbane visits Life Flight! โœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธ

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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

โ˜•๏ธ A little bit fancy… ๐Ÿฐ

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?”.ย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
