Lexis was represented by 18 students at the wakeboard park this afternoon. It was the first time for many, so they began with the kneeboard and progressed quickly to the wakeboard. The experiences snowboarders, surfers and kitesurfers caught onto the technique easily and were keen to progress to the jumps in the next session. Overall it was a very enjoyable afternoon!

On a beautiful sunny afternoon in Maroochydore there was no better way to spend the afternoon than to go fishing, on the Maroochydore river. It was the first time that the Korean, French, Japanese, German and Spanish students had been fishing, so we began with a brief rundown of technique. Then each student cast their reels in hope of catching a fish!
Saki was the first to catch a fish but unfortunately due to both the fish and Saki being frightened, it got away. Taka reeled in a lovely little fish and kindly fed it to a local pelican, Great effort everybody!

Takanori from Japan and Ryan from South Korea signed up for the new EAP course and this is what they have to say about it:
Taka finds EAP (English for Academic Purposes) challenging but enjoyable. He really likes the academic style reading and listening as it is so different to his General English course and pushes him to work really hard. Taka hopes to go to Tafe when he finishes the course and his dream is to work as a Zookeeper at Australia Zoo in the future. Good luck Taka, keep working hard~we hope to visit you at Australia Zoo one day!
Ryan says that the EAP course motivates him to work harder than he ever has before. He thinks Alison is an awesome teacher and he actually enjoys doing his homework. Another reason that Ryan loves his class is that he has great classmates who are all working towards their goals. Ryan’s philosophy is that ‘Life is always changing’ and his goal is to attend University in Australia. With Ryan’s positive outlook and strong work ethic we’re sure he will achieve his goal!
EAP is an academic course which prepares students for further studies. It also combines IELTS components for those needing to sit an IELTS test in the future. Good luck to everyone in the current EAP course~we hope you all achieve your personal goals!
