It’s Friday!

Let’s have a look at some activities you can do around the Sunshine Coast this weekend!

Australia Zoo

 There is no other zoo like Australia Zoo! We pack in stacks of wildlife action every day and there are always plenty of exciting wildlife shows to see.

For tickets message our travel shop on their Facebook page and they can organise your entry ticket plus your ticket on the bus. Facebook name:  Bwt Noosa Carolina

Ocean Street

SolbarYou can always find live music along Ocean Street in Maroochydore.  Solbar is one of the most popular spots to stop and enjoy music, have a cocktail and of course something to eat.

La Canteena is a beautiful little Mexican restaurant on Ocean Street that has really exciting lunch and dinner specials. My favourite is the Sunday $5 menu. Don’t forget to try a cocktail while you’re there!

 

 

Cotton Tree Markets

Cottontree markets If you are looking for something to do on Sunday morning why not have a look through the Cotton Tree Markets for a gift, survivor to take home or for something delicious to eat.

 

Explore the Wharf at Mooloolaba Beach

Wharf

There are so many things to see and do at the Wharf Mooloolaba!

Underwater World

There are a lot of restaurants to try my favourite is Riceboi!!! The most delicious food I have ever tasted!! You can also spend some time at Sea Life Aquarium. The seal show is really entertaining along with the walk through tunnels where you can see the sharks and other sea life swim over your head. Scary!!

 

Mount Coolum

Mount Coolum

Mount Coolum is an awe-inspiring volcanic dome that presides over the Sunshine Coast landscape. Climbing to the top of this 25 million year old laccolith is a must-do when visiting the region – the views from the top are absolutely spectacular!

 

Cotton Tree – Light the Night

light the night

Let’s light up Australia for blood cancer.
We can’t wait to see you at Light the Night. We will come together and transform the darkness into a sea of glowing light to beat blood cancer. It’s your night to walk beside those facing their own blood cancer journey, and to remember loved ones lost.
But it’s more than that – it’s your time to help raise vital funds for urgently needed blood cancer research. Register now and your reserved lantern will be ready for you to pick up on the night at the event.

EMP Student Experience

Yesterday the physio team at the St Vincent’s age care was kind enough to let our EMP student Giulia Gabbi shadow them for the day to find out exactly what it’s like in that profession here in Australia. Giulia had the most amazing experience and can’t wait to have the opportunity to work with them again!

Activities – October 2018

Let’s take a look at the activities Lexis Sunshine Coast will be doing for the month of October 2018.

October 2018

So many exciting activities to try! Don’t forget to sign up at reception to secure your spot each week and don’t forget to have fun and practise your English!

Meet our Staff at Lexis Sunshine Coast

This week we are getting to know Dave one of our teachers from Lexis Sunshine Coast. Dave has been working for Lexis since July 2016 and we have loved every minute of it!!

#1

HOW MANY LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK?

Three (this one, as well as Polish and Italian). And I’m learning both Spanish and Catalan.

 

I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE……. able to not want anything. To be happy with what I have, where I am and the people in my life in every moment.

#4

 

WHEN YOU ARE ON THE SUNSHINE COAST, DON’T MISS OUT ON…

Going all the way out to the edge of the rocks at Pt Cartwright to see the waves crashing against them (especially when there’s a huge storm). That is nature at its most powerful and beautiful.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO?

Lying on the beach down the road (Warana) with the book I’m reading, listening to Tropical House music and throwing the ball for my dog Chunky over and over and over and over.

#3

HAVE YOU EVER LIVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

Yes – Italy, Israel, America and Canada.

#2

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINATION?

Right here on the Sunny Coast; this place is paradise.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?

Every day I get to help doctors, nurses and other medical professionals chase their dreams of practising their profession in Australia (or just improve their medical English). I also get to teach and lead discussions (and learn from my students too) about the most complicated and interesting thing on earth – the human body.

 

WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER?

In the first place, to get a job and survive (in Italy). I didn’t like it at first, but now I love it. I’d be happy teaching English for the rest of my life.

 

WHAT IS YOUR ENGLISH LEARNING TIP?

Don’t translate anything into your own language. Instead of using Google Translate for a new word, search for it using Google Images. Don’t look up the translation for new vocabulary; look up what the word looks like, feels like, what its opposite is or what’s it’s similar to, or ask your teacher to describe it to you in English words you already know. It’s how we learn our native tongue when we’re kids and it’s why it becomes our strongest language.
