It’s that time of week again where we sadly have to say goodbye to our wonderful students. We will miss them but wish them well in their next adventures! Congratulations to Chris. Bobae, Ishori, Dan and Diego. Stay in touch everyone!
Nadja Mathis recently went on the 4 day tour to Monkey Mia. The trip involved 4 huge days of adventure including, hiking, wildlife interaction, Aboriginal culture, cool hostels, amazing scenery and more! Nadja visited the Pinnacles, Kalbarri National Park, and Monkey Mia. Nadja had a great time and shared these fantastic pictures.
Nadja is now on the East Coast and we cannot wait to hear more about her adventures! She will be doing a scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef, which we look forward to seeing those pictures too!
If you would like to know more speak to Carla or Anni, our very friendly Student Uni Travel girls!
Where better to learn to dive than in Australia?!
Stefan Kurt and Dominik Niederer from Lexis Perth have been busy over the last two weekends. They have completed their PADI certificate and are now certified scuba divers! Well done!
After finishing their time at Lexis they will be doing an East Coast adventure where they will put their lessons into practice, go sailing the Whitsunday’s and diving on the beautiful Great Barrier Reef!
We cant wait to see some pictures and hear all about your adventures!
Today was a busy and fun and beautifully hot day! We welcomed more than 50 students from around the globe to our little piece of Lexis paradise! These are just a few photos of some of the students who arrived today..
We look forward to sharing this beautiful summer with you all! Have a great night everyone and take care of each other tonight!
What a beautiful day and what an excellent way to finish off the academic year. Beef, chicken and lamb. Beautiful salads and cakes. Refreshments for everyone and even a friendly game of football. I don’t think I saw anyone not having fun today. Merry Christmas from Lexis English Perth, and a happy new year.
What better way to end the week than with a beautiful BBQ on the beach, good friends and perfect weather. Nice!
This weekend our brave and intrepid students headed off to Rottnest island for a weekend of fun and sightseeing. In the end more than 40 students went over and by all accounts they had a brilliant time!
Check out these great shots!
We’re all very industrious around here! The build of the school is coming along really well, in fact so well that it’s hard to get our hard-working students to go home! It’s really nice to see something being created by the hands of the people who will study and work here! Laura, Andy, Manu and Miriam seem very happy! Thanks guys.
Check out this great movie created by Akiko which shows our wonderful teachers doing what they do best.
This morning was stunning and we were lucky enough to be joined by 24 students from all around the world. In order to welcome them, we headed down to the beach to see the stunning ocean.
Huge welcome to one and all. This week it was a great mix with students from Chile (Yenny) Czech Republic (Marek and Aneta) Spain (Juan Carlos) France (Sandrine, Pierre) Belgium (Roxanne) South Korea (Seokbong and Yeong Ju) Germany (Hans and Tobias) Taiwan (Xing-Wei, Yi-Hsuan, Jin Hui) Russia (Anastashia) and from Switzerland (Zoe, Malika, Martina, Matteo, Janine, Fabian and last but not least Yannick!) Have a great time guys, let us know anytime you need some help!
Today I had the pleasure of catching up with Kim and Sky to talk about their experiences with us here at Lexis English Perth.
This is what they had to say: “ Hi Everyone, my name is Kim from South Korea. I have been here for seven months which has gone past very quickly. I started in the pre-intermediate class when I first arrived here in Perth and am now studying in the Upper Intermediate class.
I’ve had a lot of fun since I’ve been at Lexis and the thing I think I like about the school the most is that there are so many students from so many difference cultures and countries. It’s been great to have had the chance to meet people from all over the world and has really helped me broaden my world view.
Since I’ve been here I’ve had a few different teachers, all of whom have been good. It has been good to experience different teaching styles and I think my English has really improved. When I first arrived I had quit e a lot of difficulty with expressing myself in English, but now I’m really confident with using English and feel really fluent in the language.
I’d really like to thank my teacher Don in particular. He really helped me with my language development as well as with writing my CV. Because of Don, I’ve now been lucky enough to get a job working in the local fish and chip shop which is right on the beach in Scarborough, just a few minutes from the school. This has been a really interesting job, it’s really busy and I have met lots of people through working here.
The school has been great, the atmosphere is relaxed but the teachers are professional and have really helped me. I really like the cooking activities we do in the afternoons as I really like eating different food from different countries.
I’ve got another 5 weeks to go and I think I’ll be sad but excited to leave!”
Thanks Kim, we wish you all the best!
“Hi Guys.. as you know I’m Sky! I’ve been here almost three months and I started my language study here in the Intermediate class but have now moved over to the FCE class. I’m really pleased to be doing the FCE class and my class is great because there are lots of people in it from different cultural backgrounds. When I think about the school, the thing that most impresses me is that all of the teachers have been very enthusiastic and extremely eager to answer my questions. They always try to help me and solve any of the problems I have and they do this in a really patient and kind way. I know that they are busy, but I always feel that they have time to talk to me and to help me.
I feel that being here at Lexis Perth has provided me with a really good chance to meet friends from all over the world. As a consequence of this I have managed to make a lot of strong friendships and that’s amazing for me. I didn’t think before I came that I would get to meet so many different cultures and people.
I think the facilities, environment and the general atmosphere of the school are great. It’s a wonderful location, so close to such a beautiful beach and ocean, supermarket and cafes. I really like living in Scarborough, and I often head down to the beach to have a nice BBQ.. all of which are provided for free! The scenery and the landscape is beautiful and I’ve found that since I’ve been here I have felt more relaxed and have had time to think about my life, which was difficult to do in South Korea as I was quite stressed there.
I have a job working in a restaurant as a waiter and this has been really useful . Through my job I’m able to really utilise the language I have learnt in class and to practise my English with native speakers. My goal at the moment is to be able to make jokes with the customers. I feel that if I can have a laugh with native speakers then my English has to be really good. So far I have found that it doesn’t always work but it usually does.. .how good is that!
Hi I’m Laura from Galicia in Northern Spain. I arrived in Australia eight months ago in order to be an Au pair. I didn’t think I was going to study when I arrived here but after being here for awhile I realised how important it is to have proficient English. I now think that the decision to study at Lexis Perth was the best decision I could have made.
The first time I went to Lexis all of the staff was very helpful and helped me in making my decision to do the IELTS preparation course. I’m really pleased that I entered this course as it’s been great and my English language ability has improved an enormous amount. My teacher Don has been amazing. He really thinks about his lessons, the level has been very high and the activities have been very engaging. At the start I was really daunted by the classes, but now I really feel that I have a great insight into the workings of the exam and feel prepared to take the exam in the not too distant future… although I’m VERY nervous about it !
The school location is nice because it’s next to the ocean and just by one of the best beaches in Perth. It’s surrounded by facilities such as a supermarket, cafes and restaurants. It seems to me to be a pretty easy-going place.
I’ve had a couple of jobs here; I’ve worked as an au pair and other smaller jobs that the school has offered to the students! Today, I’m learning how to plaster and am building walls in the schools new café. I never thought my life would be quite so interesting!
Marina from Barcelona..
I started school at the beginning of the week; I am now in the FCE class which is nice. I decided to study at Lexis because in Spain I am a primary school teacher and I have had a dream of improving my English for a long time. English is obviously the international language of the world and to have good English is very important for me.
I’ve been in the class for four days now and so far the class is good. The teacher is professional and humorous. It’s a bit early for me to say too much about this as it’s only my first week but I have the impression that I will learn a lot. After I have completed the FCE course and passed the exam (I hope!) I will then do the CAE course. I think that this will a be difficult course but I’m very positive that I will try my best.
I have worked in Perth for five months before I came here as Au Pair which was a really nice experience. The family was really fun and kind. I’m now looking for a job in Scarborough which I’m hopeful that I will find soon.
Good luck to the both of you. Thanks for sharing your stories with us.

Over the last few weeks students have been learning the different film genres. From there they have then produced their own movie from one of these genres to present in class. They have all storyboarded their films prior to filming and edited their films using school software. We are all incredibly impressed by the hard work and dedication to such fun stories. Especially love the music and the effects!
The film below has caused much interest in the school due to its creativity, special effects and historical value! Take a look and remember to think twice before you eat Sushi!
