Here is the August Activity Calendar. We have some exciting activities coming up, take a look!
7月24 日， 我采访了我们青年组学生Bruce.， 一个刚满14岁的中国男孩子。
Meet Bruce who is 14 years old from China. He is studying at Lexis with the TAP program.
I come from Guangzhou , a big city in China.
I would like to study overseas when I grow up, first of all I need to study English, and it is not easy to find a good Language school. My mother’s colleague, who works with her at Guangzhou Baiyun Airport , recommended Perth. Her child had studied in Perth for two months and she really enjoyed it, that’s why they introduced Perth to us.
我比较喜欢和成年人在一起学习，这样可以学到更多东西， 总体上说青年组的活动安排还不错，可惜就是人太少，最重要的是中国学生太少了，就我一个人， 一些欧洲过来的学生他们喜欢在一起讲法语， 而没有人跟我讲中文。
Yes, I enjoy it, I like to study with adult students, because I can learn a lots of things from them. Generally the TAP program is really good, only thing is there are not too many TAP student but the most important thing is that I am the only student that comes from China. The other students come from Europe and they can speak French, but no one speaks Chinese with me.
我最喜欢的活动是国王公园的烧烤会，因为和不同国家的学生一起烧烤玩游戏很有趣 ， 还有在柏斯的购物，学校咖啡店的会话活动，保龄球，篮球还有就是逛弗雷曼特的市场， 吃当地著名的鱼和薯片。
My favorite activity is the Kings Park BBQ because we learnt to cook a BBQ and we played games with all different nationality students. I also enjoyed Perth city shopping, conversation club at Lexis Café, bowling, basketball, Fish and Chips and Fremantle Markets.
我喜欢我的寄宿家庭，就是有一点他们总是让我参与到他们的家务事情里面，比如说每天晚上煮饭时我也要去帮忙 ， 经常让我去动手，也许他们想让我更融入这个家庭吧。
I like my homestay, but I don’t like when they ask me to help them to do some house work, for example, they always ask me to cook dinner together with them, maybe they wish me to join their family better.
The best thing is they always take me with them when they go out; we went to play golf in Fremantle. I really enjoy it.
I would suggest that students who will come to Lexis Perth, learn information about different countries before they come and their culture as well, because Lexis is really an international school, full of international teachers and students, so if they know more before they come they can enjoy their study more. I have been travelled to many countries, hence I am fine to enjoy here.
Meet Ana Maria and her son Marcos who have been studying at Lexis Perth for 2 weeks. This is what Ana had to say.
Why did you decide to come to Perth/Lexis?
When we decided to come to Australia we thought about Sydney and the other big cities but we decided to come to Perth as it was a bit smaller and we had heard that Perth was very beautiful. Once we decided to come to Perth and Australia I contacted an agency in Spain who recommended Lexis.
You are living in a homestay, how have you enjoyed the experience?
It’s been very interesting to see how Australians live. We really wanted a unique experience rather than just being a “tourist”. The family are really nice and friendly and it has been fantastic to share experiences such as cooking and joking. I can say for both myself and Marcos we really feel like we are a part of the family.
You’re here with your son Marcos who has joined our TAP* program, is he enjoying it?
Oh yes, he really is. Marcos has always wanted to come to Australia but being only 13 we decided it was better to come together, however I am very careful not to spend time with him at school. One of the reasons he wanted to come to Australia was because of the animals. He thought that there would be animals everywhere!
(Unfortunately we don’t have Kangaroos jumping around our back gardens in the city!)
He loves the English classes, the other students and the activities. He is more worried about doing his homework here in Perth than in Spain! He is very happy with the other TAP students and Marcos is really enjoying the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and has also really enjoyed the experience of studying with older students.
What has been the best thing about Perth and Lexis?
The people that we have met in general. I like Scarborough a lot and I feel comfortable but the best thing has been the people.
What would you say to someone who is thinking about coming to Lexis Perth?
GO….just go to Perth and Lexis and don’t hesitate. If we could we would have stayed longer.
Ana Maria, we thoroughly enjoyed having you and Marcos as students here at Lexis. We wish you all the best in the future and thank you so much for your time answering these questions.
