Maria’s Lexis Sunshine Coast Experience!

Maria TestimonialMy first weeks on the Sunshine Coast and Lexis English I felt really at home. I was looking for a quiet place where I can relax, enjoy the amazing beaches and meet new people from different countries. The Sunshine Coast offered me what I was looking for. In addition, I realised soon that Lexis Sunshine Coast is a great school, with quality teachers and an amazing view of the beach.

I choose the Sunshine Coast because I knew that there was a great mix of students and also because of the beautiful beaches and environment.

I love the Sunshine Coast because I can experience the real Australian lifestyle, and the local people here are ‘easy-going’, relaxed and welcoming.

I love my classroom experience thanks to the small number of students in the classes, and the quality of the teachers make the lessons fun and engaging.

I have future plans to travel back to Italy however in the near future I will be applying for a post-graduate degree in Sydney, Australia.
