Noosa – Student Graduation – 21st October

This week we are saying goodbye to 7 of our lovely students. 

Students are constantly coming and going here at Lexis English, we love the hello’s but not so much the goodbyes. Friday is our graduation day and today we are sadly seeing 7 of our students leave us. 

From the Intermediate class, Roger will be leaving us to travel around Australia. His first stop is Cairns. 

From the Upper Intermediate class, we have Matthias and Luis leaving. Luis has been a long-term student and will stay in Australia for a little bit.

Matthias has been with us for a short time but has contributed well in class, so he will be missed by everyone. 

From the Advanced class, we are saying goodbye to 4 of our lovely students. We have only had the pleasure of having Jan and Gesa for a week before they do some travelling up North in Cairns.

We also said goodbye to Anna who has only been here for a short time but will be missed by the teacher Anette and the rest of the students, Anna was very sad to be leaving us.

Last but not least, we are farewelling Omar who has been with us for a while. He is off to experience other parts of Australia. He says Noosa is beautiful, but he can’t wait to see more of Australia’s beauty. 

The Lexis Noosa team has enjoyed watching each of the students improve their English and we wish all of our graduating students the very best for their future.

Noosa – Delicious Aussie BBQ – 18th October

On Monday, the students experienced a classic Aussie BBQ!

On Monday, the teachers decided to organise an Aussie BBQ for the students. It was a perfect afternoon for a barbie! 

In Australia, we like to shorten our words and use slang as much as possible so often you might find a barbeque being referred to as a ‘barbie.’ And you might hear a sausage being referred to as a ‘snag.’ 

The BBQ was cooked professionally by teacher Rob as the students lined up to try a snag in bread. The students enjoyed sausages on bread with onion, and a choice of mustard, barbeque and tomato sauce. Some of our Cambridge students were very lucky and were able to try some kangaroo meat cooked especially for them as promised by Deb, their teacher. 

A true Aussie barbie is quite casual and is used as an opportunity to catch up with friends and family. Usually, in true Aussie style, a cold beer or another alcoholic drink is involved.

The Brazilian students are very familiar with barbeques as they are huge in Brazil, they claim that Brazilian BBQ’s are even better than Aussie ones! 

The students had a great time socialising with their friends and were very happy to take a break from class and relax for the last half of the afternoon, especially for the Cambridge students after their mid-year exams. 

It was an enjoyable, relaxing afternoon!

Noosa – Making delicious sushi – 10th October

On Friday our students got to make sushi! 

On Friday, our students made sushi with Kira and Aya, who is a student from Japan. Aya makes sushi for her family back home in Japan, so she is an expert! She did an amazing job at preparing the ingredients and assisting the students to roll the sushi. 

The ingredients were placed on the table so the students could make their sushi with their preferred fillings. The filling options included avocado, cucumber, lettuce, canned tuna, fresh tuna and fresh salmon with a choice of condiments including, kewpie mayo, wasabi, vinegar and soy sauce. 

Some of the students had made sushi before, for others it was their first time. 

Rolling the sushi was the most challenging part but our students had so much fun and enjoyed eating it even more.

Noosa – Fascinating snake and reptile show – 28th September

This week our students attended a snake and reptile show!

Many people fear Australia due to some of the animals that we have living in our country. Well, this week the students had the opportunity to face their fears and learn that actually, some are not as scary or as deadly as most first think. 

This week our teachers gave the students a little break from class to go and see a snake and reptiles show that was happening close to our campus. During the presentation, the students were shown three different species of snakes and three different species of lizards. A fun fact we learnt at the show was that only 3-4 people die from a snake bite per year! A lot less than most people expect. 

The students learnt so much about some of our Australian snake and lizards while being able to have a close look at them too. After the presentation, the students had the opportunity to hold a snake! Some of the students were brave, others watched them be brave from afar. 
None of these snakes were dangerous and all of the species that were shown are common Australian pets.

Some of the reactions and facial expressions were priceless!

The students loved the seeing the show and getting up close and personal with the animals (well most of them). It was a perfect way to introduce them to some of the native Australian animals and add to their studying experience in Australia!

Noosa – Friday Fun Day Scavenger Hunt – 9th September

Today Teacher Rob took the Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate students on a scavenger hunt. 

The students were asked to get into teams and were given a list of tasks to complete within a time limit. Each task was worth a different amount of points depending on the difficulty of the task and they were required to get photo proof of each task that was completed. The team with the most points when the time was up, won the challenge. 

The students had so much fun completing all the tasks and it was a great opportunity to explore the town at the same time. 
We saw a lot of smiles and laughing from the students during the scavenger hunt! 

The end results were tied and so the final winner came down to a technical decision, it was very close! Teacher Rob was feeling generous so each of the teams received a packet of Tim Tam’s for their efforts, which are a famous Australian sweet snack, and the winning team won TWO packets! 

Overall, it was a very fun ending to the week and the students had a blast!

Noosa – Chocolate Tasting – 2nd September

On Friday for our afternoon activity, the students did chocolate tasting with Kira, the Student Services Coordinator.

There were 6 varieties of chocolate, each with different flavours and made in different countries. The students tasted: Nestle Rolo, Pico Salted Caramel, Whittakers Caramel Blondie, Sunburnt Series Orange, Cadbury Fruit & Nut and Coles Belgian Dark Chocolate. 

The students observed the taste, texture, and smell and gave an overall enjoyment rating out of 10 for each chocolate variety. 

The students had very different opinions about each chocolate variety. Some of the students preferred the sweeter varieties and the others not so much. We saw some very funny facial expressions at times while trying the chocolate. 

A few of the students are vegan and so a couple of vegan chocolate varieties were included also. 

Overall, each student had their own favourite, however Australian chocolate is very different to what they’re used to!
