Teachers Professional Development Session @ Lexis Sunshine Coast campus

Teachers at Lexis Sunshine Coast campus arrived early this morning to attend a breakfast meeting and professional development session.

Our teachers are dedicated to providing engaging and interactive lessons. This morning the focus was on Option classes. Our lucky students are going to be presented with some wonderful lessons when we start the new round of option classes next Monday. I’m really looking forward to seeing these great ideas come to life in the classrooms over the next few weeks.

English for Medical Professionals (EMP) at Lexis Sunshine Coast

 

 

 

Our EMP class has been running for five weeks now so this week it was time to get out of the classroom and get some real world experience. Alejandra is a doctor in Colombia and was delighted to spend the afternoon with local GP Paul. We are so very lucky that Paul is the husband of our EMP teacher Kate and was happy to offer our students such a great opportunity. Alejandra spent the afternoon with Paul while he did his patient consultations. They went on home visits and nursing home visits and she was able to ask him a lot of questions.

Thanks again Paul.

Watch this space – Alejandra will be reporting back live on how her EMP class is preparing her for her future medical career.

Lexis Students back to visit

We love having past students back to visit us and share their news. Yesterday we had a visit from Rosa, who came to share the news of her recent success. Rosa studied in our March FCE class and was so happy to learn that she had passed the exam. She couldn’t wait to see her teacher Simon to thank him. Well done Rosa! You worked hard during the course and deserve your success.

Ed was our second visitor of the day. He graduated from the High School Preparation class last Friday and came to say hello in his new school uniform, and of course have a photo with his teacher Owen. Ed now attends Chancellor Park High School and tells us that he enjoyed his first 2 days in his new school.

It was so lovely to see you both. Best of luck and come back and visit again soon 🙂

IELTS STUDENTS ON THE WAY TO TAFE

Congratulations and a sad farewell was in order on Friday as we said good bye to two of our long term students. Viktoriya and Haebeen began in our General English classes before moving in to our very popular IELTS class for 12 weeks. They worked hard and at the end of the course were able to meet their pathway requirements to TAFE East Coast. They will both now go on to study a Diploma of Nursing. Good luck to you both – we will miss you at Lexis English Sunshine Coast.
