Lexis English, Perth
Duration: 6 months

I spent 3 months at a language school in Cairns before coming to Perth. I went to Cairns as it was a small town and I didn’t want to be in a crowded city such as Sydney or Melbourne.

I chose Perth for three reasons: First, as a nature lover, I came back to Australia for the wildlife. Australia has amazing diversity of animals such as snakes, lizards and of course kangaroos!

Then, obviously because of the climate, which is perfect here in Australia, even in winter I can wear shorts and t-shirts in the middle of the day. Finally I wanted again a quiet place to study, so I chose Perth (the city isn’t very big).

I didn’t need a Cambridge certificate, I just decided to do the course as a big challenge to myself. The structure of the course was well organised and the book that we studied from every day provided great content. There was a good balance between theory and practical exercises. When I arrived, I was more at an FCE level but I am delighted I chose CAE as it pushed me a lot to achieve a higher level in English.

The best thing about Lexis was the teachers! I was always so happy and confident with the teachers and their teaching techniques. They are all so caring and had so much time and care for their students.

Regarding accommodation, I started in a homestay but then I found an Air B&B to move to. I have really enjoyed the experience of living with an Aussie family.

When I finish at Lexis, I’m going for a 4 week drive from Perth to Darwin. Two of my friends and I are renting a car to drive up the coast. I am then spending 2 weeks in New Zealand and 1 month in Japan. I’m going to study Japanese next year in Japan. I really wanted to study at Lexis but I will be living in Osaka so it was a little bit too far to commute each day.

I would definitely recommend LEXIS to other people. The teaching quality is very high. The organisation within the school is great and the teachers are very involved with their students' learning. In addition, the location of the school is fantastic; it’s great to be close to the stunning beaches such as Scarborough Beach. It is a calm and safe place to study at.

I went to Australia for 2 months. The “Lexis English Perth” school offers a good mix of study and holiday. It’s only 2 minutes away from Scarborough Beach, which means that every day we can eat our lunch in front of the ocean. That’s amazing! The city centre is reachable by public transports within 30 minutes. Teachers are highly qualified; they know their students, including their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, every weekend the school organises different excursions; this allows you to meet other students and discover new horizons. Going to Australia is a great experience; life is so good there, that you won’t want to come back! I really recommend it!

I spent two months at Lexis School in Perth, which is located in Scarborough, a beautiful neighbourhood along the ocean where you can find many nice bars and restaurants! The school is 5 minutes away by foot from the beaches and 15 minutes away from the student house where I have lived with other students from the school.

The city centre as well as all its attractions (big parks, restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs) are located a bit more than 30 minutes away by public transport (bus and/or train).

Perth is a “small” city (1.5 million inhabitants) but it is full of life and events of all kind! People are very welcoming and they are used to students and tourists, given the cultural diversity that there is within the biggest Australian west coast city. Many sites and natural parks are reachable by car from Perth, in the north as well as in the south: you must absolutely visit them!

I went to Perth for 6 months, to the “Lexis English School”. The school is small and ideally located only 2 minutes away from Scarborough Beach and 30 minutes away from the city centre by public transports. I really enjoyed living in Perth because it’s not too big, there are many stunning beaches and the area of Northbridge is great if you like to party. Going to Australia was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone!

Ciaoooo! I had the unique opportunity to go to Australia for 3 months to improve my English skills, while keeping my job back in Switzerland. I don’t regret the choice of this destination! Perth and its surroundings are a little corner of paradise in West Australia; the moments I spent there were magic. Even if I stayed only for 3 months, my English has improved a lot and the experience has been incredible enriching; I met lots of people from all over the world and discovered a very warm and “clubbing” Australian population! ☺ I recommend to any Swiss person who wants to clear his/her Swiss and stressful mind to go to Australia: when they’ll go back home, they’ll be all fresh and ready to start their life again, with the head full of great memories! Oh, and the beach is 2 minutes away from the school…! If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me!
