Thuy is one of our Vietnamese students, he is happy to share his Lexis experience with us:
“Hi everybody! My name is Thuy, I’m 32 years old. I come from Vietnam, it’s a beautiful country which is located in the East of Asia. We all know that English plays an important role in the development of a country. That’s why I want to learn English. I want to spend my whole life to contribute to its development. So, nowhere in the world is better than Australia. Right here we have access to an advanced education system, a wonderful English-speaking environment and… Australia is also a very friendly and beautiful country. All the universities and colleges offer the best education, one of them is the University of Sunshine Coast – Lexis English Sunshine Coast campus. Sunshine Coast campus is situated on level 3, 17 Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore, Queensland. Standing on the level 3, you can have a look of the coast ahead, the park, the library, the supermarket… It’s only 5 minutes walk to Sunshine Plaza and it’s very convenient for anyone to catch the bus if they want to travel around Maroochydore. Besides that, the teaching and working staff here are especially friendly and helpful. They’re well-trained and experienced. It’s amazing that the teaching methods here are so open, so effective and so professional. It’s so easy to understand. The students from all over the world gathered here to exchange their knowledge and their cultures. They are all close to each other. Thanks to the professional and international English-speaking environment, now I feel so comfortable and confident when going to school and wandering around the park, the beach or the street.That’s why I would recommend to my relatives and my friends, not only in Vietnam but also in Australia to study well, to work hard and to try our best to achieve our dreams. I think this is the most suitable destination for both overseas students and local students, to master English in Australia. It would be great for me to teach, to work and to do more research in English, when I come back to Vietnam with what I’ve learned here. I think I can do it all well.”

Another beautiful day in Maroochydore for our Lexis students. This time the students had a taste of the legendary cricket. The students had fun and were happy to discover something new. In between each innings, the students went for a well-deserved dip in the water. Each team won an innings and there was a draw too, keeping everyone happy. Well done everyone!
