Today I caught up with Mireia from Spain who is currently studying our Cambridge Advanced Course. She has been at Lexis English Sunshine Coast since November 2014. I asked her a couple of questions about her time here. Check out below what she had to say!

What is your favourite thing about Lexis Sunshine Coast?

My favourite thing is the people that I have met during these last few months from all over the world and that will give me the chance to travel and hopefully meet all of them again one day!

Why did you come to Australia to study English?

I came to Australia to improve my English, to have better job opportunities and because I wanted to travel and discover this amazing country. Also because of the good weather, the job opportunities and because it was a challenge for me also as it is along distance away from Barcelona.

Have you found a job in Australia?

Yes, I work in a primary school and a hotel as a cleaner. I have also had a job selling solar panels in an electrical company.

How are your teachers and classes at Lexis Sunshine Coast?

All of them are AWESOME! They prepare fun classes to try to teach you while having fun. Also the Lexis Team always help you and they really care about their students.

Would you recommend Lexis English to other students?

I would strongly recommend to everyone who wants to improve their English level and wants to get to know amazing people!

And lastly tell us something crazy/interesting about yourself…

I have become the undeniable champion of Ping Pong at Lexis Sunshine Coast!

Thanks Mireia 🙂
