The name says it all. Sunshine Coast.
Lots of sunshine, stunning beaches and a pristine natural environment. All of this is just an hour away from Brisbane’s international airport .
Lexis English Sunshine Coast is in the busy town of Maroochydore (population: 50,000), at the mouth of the Maroochy River. The school is minutes from the beach. The surf is great. The kite-boarding is wicked. Public transport is good, but most students either walk or ride to school.
It’s a great outdoor lifestyle with swimming, surfing, kite-boarding, kayaking and sailing right across the street from school. There are lots of bicycle paths and hiking trails. The area hosts international triathlon and surfing competitions.
The college is in a new building with the latest learning facilities. Even the school has views of the ocean. It is a small to medium size school: friendly and intimate. You can study a choice of general and academic English programs for all levels, including the Cambridge exam (FCE and CAE) and English plus surf. The area is popular with tourists so there are lots of work opportunities.
Maroochydore is 100 kilometres north of Brisbane. The school is in the central shopping area next to the huge Sunshine Plaza shopping centre, a short walk to the beach and close to cafes and shops.

The Language House likes
We all like sunshine. All year round. The school is relatively small. It has a family friendly feel. It’s a great choice if you like to be outdoors and don’t want to be in a dense urban environment.
