  • Our burgers don’t just taste amazing, they look great because of the effort, care and love that have gone into them. Grill’d team leaders take pride in their own presentation and always look super schmick in their uniforms.
  • Confidence and communication. For us this means speaking with our customers clearly and in a friendly manner. It’s about asking for help when you need it and being open with your team.
  • We are team players. Our people know that every single burger made and customer served contribute to what Grill’d is.
  • Everyone at Grill’d has a big appetite for knowledge (ok, and burgers…). We are constantly improving our food knowledge, working on customer service and developing our skills. This means that prior experience in a restaurant isn’t essential; if you have the attitude, we have the training.

Meet our Teachers at Lexis Sunshine Coast

This week we are getting to know Peter one of our teachers from Lexis Sunshine Coast. We hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as we have!

Peter 4

HOW MANY LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK?

I speak two languages – English and German.

 

I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE……. a pilot.

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

Going to see Noosa! It is a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO?

Driving through the Australian bush listening to the cricket on the radio.

HAVE YOU EVER LIVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

Yes – USA, UK and Germany for many years.

 

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINATION?

I’m easy to please – just give me a beach.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I think most teachers would answer like me but it would have to be the students.

 

WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER?

By accident. I was travelling and I discovered it was one of the best ways to get work.

WHAT IS YOUR ENGLISH LEARNING TIP?

Time adverbials can help you know which tense you should use. e.g. since, for, while, after etc.

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.

Lexis Sunshine Coast and Seoul campuses are approved OET Test Centres!

We are delighted to announce Lexis Sunshine Coast and Lexis Korea are now approved OET test centres.

The Occupational English Test (OET) is an international English language test that assesses the language and communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.

OET Test materials are designed to reflect real medical workplace scenarios, meaning that candidates can be confident that they will know exactly what to expect, and feel more confident on test day.

The OET provides a valid and reliable assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – with an emphasis on communication in medical and health professional settings.

OET tests international health practitioners in the following 12 professions:

  • Dentistry
  • Dietetics
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Podiatry
  • Radiography
  • Speech Pathology
  • Veterinary Science

Why the OET?

The OET is recognised and trusted by more than 30 regulatory healthcare bodies and councils in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Many organisations, including hospitals, universities and colleges, are using OET as proof of a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively in a demanding healthcare environment. In addition, OET is recognised by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection for a number of visa categories, including work and student visas.

Many candidates currently employed in, or considering working in a healthcare related field choose the OET as it employs the English language that they are most familiar with – the same language that they use every day at work.

Where can I take the OET?

Lexis Sunshine Coast is a registered OET Examination Centre. Our next  2016 examination date will be:

Saturday 9 April 2016

Applications open: 18 Feb to 16 Mar

Results published: 3 May 16

I’m not sure I’m ready for the exam!

If you are concerned that you may not yet have the required level of English for your OET target score, please contact us here to arrange a language assessment. We will be pleased to assist you in arranging an appropriate course of study prior to your examination date.
