We said farewell to another #LexisFamily member today. Someone very special who has been studying at Lexis for a year!! 😀 Let’s meet Marika! Marika is originally from Japan. Her first day at Lexis Brisbane was on the 22nd of February 2016! On her first day, Marika was very nervous and only had a Pre-Intermediate level of English. She finished today, with an Upper Intermediate, Grade A level, and has also completed 19 weeks of Cambridge FCE!! 🙂
We asked Marika some questions about her time here in Australia, so keep on reading to see what she had to say!

What courses did you study at Lexis while you were here?
I started in Pre-Intermediate, and completed both Intermediate and Upper-Intermediate. I have also finished the Cambridge FCE course.
Did you go to more than one Lexis school?
I went to Brisbane and Sunshine Coast campuses.
What did you think of your classes and teachers?
Super good!! 🙂
Why did you choose to come to Brisbane? Are you happy with your choice?
Brisbane is not as busy as Melbourne, but also not too quiet. Everything is so convenient. I think Brisbane is the best city in Australia to live in!
Where did you live while you were here?
I lived with an Aussie family at first, but then moved to my own place.
Did you work while you were studying?
No I didn’t have a job… 😦
What do you like most about Brisbane/Australia?
The weather! Brisbane has warm weather all throughout the year.
What is your most memorable experience in Brisbane/Australia?
I can’t choose only one! All of my memories are unforgettable! I’ve been to Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Moreton Island, Fraser Island, etc… 🙂 But I did also enjoy meeting many nationalities at Lexis. They made my Aussie Life WONDERFUL!!
What are your plans for when you return home?
I’m going back to Japan to finish my university degree. But I plan on coming back to Australia after this!
We are so very proud of your achievements, Marika, and you should be too! 👍👍 Marika has plans to come back to Australia in August, so until then – good luck and we will see you again! ❤ ❤
If you or someone you know would like to get involved with writing a testimonial, please have a chat with Tara at Reception!
Have a great weekend, everyone! 😀
