How we create the points regarding what we like/dislike about a school

Location: Lexis English is situated in the business district of Brisbane, within the neighbourhood known as Frog’s Hollow. The school is in a convenient position, with plenty of activity in the neighbourhood - bars, restaurants and shops line the streets.

Getting around: The Central Brisbane Train Station and the Roma Street Train Station are both walkable from the school, the central station being practically opposite the school building. This makes travelling around the city very simple. Lexis English is two blocks away from the River Brisbane. The river is a method of transportation in Brisbane with a well connected ferry system. The school is almost equal distance from the Riverside Ferry Terminal and the North Quay 2 Ferry Terminal, both of which are within a five minute radius from the school.

Local attractions: Just down the road from Lexis English is Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens. The South Bank Parklands, Wheel of Brisbane and the art museum known as QAGOMA are across the river from the school's locations. Students can either use the ferry to cross to the other side, or cross the Victoria Bridge, which takes around 20 minutes by foot.

School building: The modern design of the building has been created for a maximum learning experience for students using the facilities. There is plenty of natural light, and the furnishings and decor have all been carefully selected for student comfort.

Lexis English: Lexis English teaches high quality English classes in a number of popular Australian cities including Sydney, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Perth, Noosa and Byron Bay. All the schools are accredited for quality by the Australian government as well as all being an authorised centre for Cambridge English Assessment.

The placement test and lessons went hand in hand. My teacher was really good.
I had to pay for a book and didn't get it because I was only there for a week. On the Monday after the test, the school closed right away.
