Last Friday we had to say goodbye to more wonderful student:(
Well done to you all & we will miss you here at Lexis Brisbane.
We would love to welcome our new students to Lexis English Brisbane. We are super excited to have you all at Lexis Brisbane & hope you enjoy your time here ❤
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%? 😉
Happy Graduation to our students this week! We will miss you! Have a Merry Christmas, and please keep in touch!! ❤️❤️
Sometimes our teachers encourage our English students to step outside of their comfort zones and put their English skills to practice by going outside and speaking to people on the street about real-life events. This week, it was to find out what people thought about the US election.
From High Communication class teacher Blair:
Our High Communication Option class took to the streets last week to ask the people of Brisbane what they thought about the US election results. Our survey showed 50% for Clinton and 50% for Trump, but the news sources say that 80% of Australians wouldn’t have voted for Trump. Why the discrepancy? Can you think of any reasons?
This made for a very interesting discussion class afterwards!
In today’s English Through Cooking option class, teacher Sander and his students created ‘Champagne Sorbets’, or also known as Femin’s Glorious Drink! Looks pretty amazing…
