Heny’s Lexis Sunshine Coast experience

banner-inside-sunshinecoast

Heny would like to share her ‘Lexis English’ experience with us:

“My name is Heny. I’m 18 years old and come from Taiwan. Firstly, I didn’t want to study English anymore after high-school, but I love traveling and I want to go to university in Australia. So, I changed my mind and came to Australia to learn English. I chose the Sunshine Coast because my mother said: “It is a fantastic place, the beach is clean, the environment is natural and the most important thing is that there are hardly any people who can speak mandarin.” I think the best part about studying at Lexis Sunshine Coast is that the teachers and students are extremely amiable and helpful. Also, the environment of here is awesome. I recommend studying here, particularly if you love swimming in the sea and enjoying a natural life. I’ll look for a job, travel and go to university in my future with the English I’ve learned.”
