Es hatte etwas viele Schweizer in Noosa und die Klassen waren nicht sehr gemischt. Wunderbar nette Familie, sehr empfehlenswert! Das Freizeitangebot könnte noch etwas breiter sein, ich habe nur einmal am Yoga Kurs teilgenommen und einmal an einem Pizzaessen.

Mis expectativas linguisticas tal vez eran elevadas por el resultado obtenido, pero con otro sistema de enseñanza o con depende que profesor, uno puede avanzar más o menos.La estancia en la ciudad, Noosa, ha sido buenisima, el lugar es ideal para estudiar y relajarse 16 alumnos por clase, y más del 50 % de japoneses, (que son bellisimas personas) per existe una dificultat de escucha importante. Ya he comentado, que los japoneses excelentes personas, y tal vez repetiria con ellos, antes que con jovenes españoles que son más juerguistas. Es el profesorado (concreto mi profesora) Personas muy amables, siempre se han preocupado por mí, la estancia ha sido mi mejor experiencia. Las actividades eran pocas o sin aportación de valor,

Do you think you've made progress?
« He progresado, por que la estancia obliga hablar y acerte entender, pero no por el sistema, ni la impliación de mi profesora, ejemplo, en las clases siempre era: speak with your partner, normalmente hablar con uno de tu mismo nivel, va bien, pero quien te corrigue, en mi caso nadie, la profesora estaba sentada en si silla y ...segun el alumno no tiene ni ganas (jovenes españoles), y con los japoneses , muy dedicados per de dificil entender, y repito prefiero los japoneses a la mayoria de jovenes españoles uqe yo he encontrado. »
School highlights
« La situación, , en general es espaciosa, las mayoria de las clases son abiertas y con cristales, etc. En mi caso , lo siento pero es así, estaba en una excelente clase, y justo cuando decidi prolongar la escuela (3 semana) no cambiaron de clase a una pequeña, porque la clase anterior pusieron a u;grupo enorme de japoneses que tenian una estancia cerrada de un mes. »

Lexis English, Noosa
Duration: 12 weeks

Noosa is perfect to learn English. It is just beautiful, small and well structured. The beach is very beautiful too. I even bought myself a surfboard and right after class, I go surfing. Australians are very nice, I get along well with them as well as with my host family and I enjoy the moments I spend with them. We learn a lot of things at the school, our teacher is very nice and always ready to make a joke.

Lexis English, Noosa
Duration: 12 weeks

Summer, the sun, the beach, surf, the classes and the koalas – Noosa is a dream! The school has a central location and is only 10 minutes away from the beach – perfect get away after school to surf or study on the sand. My host family is extraordinary and supports me in my learning of the English language but it also makes me take part in its Aussie lifestyle!

 Lexis English, Noosa
Duration: 11 weeks
 

I am studying a total of 6 months in Australia, now I am in Lexis Noosa for 3 months and after I will move to Sydney for the remaining 3 months. I am currently in an upper-intermediate class and both of my teachers; Dionne and Eileen are fantastic and have been supportive during my course.

I choose to study in Noosa because it seemed to be a really nice place, with a beautiful ocean and lots of nature. At first I thought Iwould stay in Sydney the entire 6 months, but I am glad I choose to try something different and experience Australian culture in a smaller locationfirst. 

I first saw Noosa in a brochure at the ESL Montreux office and their staff then advised me of the location, as they have personally experienced Noosa and recommended it to me. I am very happy with my course structure and think it is perfect for me and I have really improved my speaking and vocabulary. Sometimes the lessons have been quite easy for me, but it is also good to revise the basics that I already learnt in my home country.

I am living in homestay accommodation and am very happy. My homestay family is approximately a 5 minute walk to the school, which is nice. At first, I was surprised by some cultural differences, but now that my family and I have gotten to know each other, those differences are not so obvious anymore.

There are a lot of activities to do in Noosa if you enjoy the outdoors. During my time here I have enjoyed BBQ’s, national park walks, lots of outdoor activities, but especially surfing. I will take home many wonderful memories and have met a lot of friends both international and Australian, I love the Aussie accent! I think Noosa offers a sunny life and everyone is very open, warm and friendly. People in Australia seem genuinely interested in meeting different cultures, which is nice.

After my courses, I hope to travel part of Australia with some friends and maybe hire a van; I would really like to see Alice Springs. My main purpose in achieving an English qualification is so I can travel most places and be able to communicate. I think it is important to be bilingual and with English you can use it mostly everywhere. My goal is to study medicine and I hope to use my English to volunteer in a program, such as Doctors without borders. Thank you to everyone who helped with my Australian journey!
