Our names are Denise and Pascal and we come from Switzerland near Montreux.
I, Denise, am studying the Cambridge Advanced certificate for 12 weeks. I am very happy with the school and most importantly am satisfied with my Teacher. English will be helpful to me because my job is working with people from abroad.
I, Pascal, am studying General English for 12 weeks and I am in the pre-intermediate class. I think the classrooms are a little small but otherwise I am very happy. My Teacher is very nice and I take options classes in the afternoon, for example speaking or listening, which is helpful to me. Since I have been at Lexis English my English has improved and I have moved up a level. I am a Technician – so a lot of manuals and text are in English, so my studies will be very helpful.
We choose Lexis Sunshine Coast because the location was not too big and not too small, there are many nice places to study so it was a difficult choice, but we are happy. We are living together with an Australian hostfamily. Although the food is different and sometimes the family does things differently, our hostmother makes an effort to speak with us, and we also are included in family events, such as Easter celebrations. The house is in a nice, clean, in a quiet location and we have plenty of privacy and our own bathroom. The Homestay family live about 9kms from the campus, so going to school is good because our hostmother drives us every morning, but coming home can be difficult with bus times are sometimes not suitable. We are lucky also because our hostfamily provided us with bikes, so we can go bike riding and look around the area. We have enjoyed our time here and even though we are studying hard, we have also travelled and spent time at the beach. We are having a great time and this has been a real opportunity to learn English quickly but also to experience a lot of fantastic things. This has been a nice break from our usual routine at home and we will use the English that we have learnt to further our work opportunities.
We would recommend this school.
