Student Testimonial – Let’s meet Asumi!

Everyone, meet the lovely Asumi! 🙂 Asumi has been with us here at Lexis Brisbane for 8 weeks, and unfortunately we have to say goodbye to her tomorrow! 😦 Asumi brought such positive energy to her classes and everyone admired her hard work!

Asumi Ekka.jpg

Asumi (pictured right) with her fellow volunteer helper.

During her stay here in Brisbane, Asumi accomplished many things. Her most treasured memory was when she volunteered at this year’s Ekka. Asumi applied through the Queensland Cancer Council’s recruitment agency, and was accepted to lend a helping hand at the show. “I helped for 2 days from 8:30am until 12:30pm. My job was to hand out Ekka show maps, and sell fundraising badges”. Asumi really enjoyed her time helping the public and raising money for a good cause. “I was often asked for directions, and it felt good to show them around. I felt so lucky to share this experience with my team members”.

We sat down with Asumi today and asked her some other questions about Brisbane and her experience at Lexis. Take a look below at what she had to say.


What course did you study at Lexis?
I was in the Pre-Intermediate General English course.

What do you think of your classes and teachers?
I think the classes are good! Both my classmates and teachers are very kind.

Why did you choose Brisbane? Are you happy with your choice?
I heard that Brisbane was a very comfortable place to live. I’m really happy with my choice.

Do you live close to the city?
Yes, I live close to the city. I share a house with other students.

Did you ever participate in our homestay program? What did you think about it?
Yes, I lived in homestay for about 6 weeks. It was very interesting, and my host family were very kind. 🙂

What do you like most about Brisbane?
The people here are very kind! Everyone is always so friendly! 😀

What are your plans for when you return to Japan?
I would like to work with foreign people.


We’re so happy for what you’ve achieved during your stay, Asumi! We hope you continue to make more wonderful memories in the future! ❤ ❤

We love hearing about our Lexis Family success stories, so if you would like to feature in one of our Student Testimonials, just come and see Tara at Reception! 🙂
