Tomorrow we’ll say goodbye to some of our great students. Joe is one of them. He’s been in Eva and Sophie’s Intermediate class for 12 weeks and has been a fantastic student! When he first started, he was very shy but quickly turned out to be a quite amusing and humorous person. He easily made friends in school and was well – liked by his teachers.
We’ve had a chat with Joe and he said he’ll miss everything about Lexis, especially his teachers and fellow students and will surely come back to visit.
Joe is going to Biloela in Northern Queensland for 3 months and then coming back to Brisbane where he will be working and enjoying the city life.
Friday’s afternoon activity was our popular Café Conversation Club. Students went to a café with teacher Yvonne and talked about various topics. One of the students, Erica from Taiwan, wanted to tell us what she thought about this great way to spend Friday afternoon.
I really enjoyed Café Conversation Club because I had a chance to chat with many students from different countries. We had some coffee and biscuits and we talked about jobs, shopping, holidays and travelling in Australia. The teacher helped us to start the conversation, so it made it easier for us to talk. We should do it more often so students can practice their speaking and listening.
Welcome to our beautiful country. We hope you have a super time here at Lexis and enjoy your travels in Australia.
In South Korea, May 15th is Teacher’s Day. Two of our South Korean students, Jin and Joe love their teachers and so they brought them some lovely and practical gifts. (Teachers always need good coffee cups!) Yvonne and Eva were very happy!
Our Lexis English Noosa FCE students did a great writing task to practise their describing language. It’s really good! Check it out below:
Thanks everyone, great work and I am sure that other students will benefit from this blog.
Ex-student Tom visited today to say goodbye to all the staff at Lexis Brisbane as he is returning home to Saudi Arabia after nearly two and a half years in Australia. He said the best thing about his time here was being at Lexis and meeting lots of people from all around the world. He has made some great friends! Tom is excited about returning home to see his family, but says he will really miss Australia. Best of luck Tom! 🙂
