Mon séjour linguistique à Maroochydore restera gravé dans ma mémoire ! Cependant, je considère qu'il y a quelques améliorations possibles concernant l'école Lexis. Maroochydore est une ville très calme et pourrait ne pas plaire à tout le monde, surtout pour un séjour de longue durée.Concernant le pays, je suis tombée amoureuse de l'Australie. Les Australiens sont si amicaux et les parcs nationaux sont absolument merveilleux. Je tiens un blog sur mon expérience australienne, si cela vous intéresse ou peut aider quelqu'un qui s'apprête à se rendre en Australie, voici l'adresse : www.hellohelotrips.blogspot.com.au

Testimonials

André Conrad

The first time I thought about a language stay was last summer. I was in the army and noticed that I needed a change. At that time, I didn’t expect it to be the best decision in my whole life! I chose Maroochydore because it promised me what I was searching for, a good school with professional teachers, a beautiful landscape with amazing beaches and some nightlife.  What I found here, however, was more than I expected. Thanks to Global Village, my English has improved a lot. Every sunny, cloudless day at the beach was a dream.  I have made a lot of new friends from all over the world and I’ve had the best homestay imaginable. Now my time is over, so, of course I’m sad, but I’ve had the time of my life!

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.

I came to study English for 3 months and then travel. I am hoping to pass the CAE exam. I like the Sunshine Coast because it’s got good beaches and shops, lots of things to do and great weekend trips. I have already been to Surfers Paradise at the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Brisbane and Fraser Island. The Lexis school has been a great experience so far, because I have met a lot of people from different nationalities and that has also helped to improve my English. I especially like the school facilities and the close proximity to the beach.
