Welcome to Lexis

lexis  (ˈlɛksɪs)     =    n the totality of a language; all required for fluency in a language 


When you join us at Lexis English, you will enjoy the best available facilities, inspirational teachers and a high quality learning experience.  Lexis schools are in some of Australia's 'best kept secret' locations, places where you can not only learn English, but discover the 'real' Australia.


The first Lexis school, Lexis Noosa, opened in 1989.  The group later expanded to Brisbane, Byron Bay, the Sunshine Coast and finally to Perth.  Lexis traded as Global Village English Centres until 2011, when the company was rebranded as Lexis English.  Today, with 5 great beach and city locations, Lexis offers a unique study experience in some of Australia’s iconic study destinations.  If you'd like to learn a little more about the history and people of Lexis, click here >

This website is designed to guide you through the process of choosing where to study, what to study and how to make the most of your time with us.  It also introduces you to a wealth of online resources where you can learn more about our schools, our towns and this unique country.

WHERE to study…

Whether you decide to base yourself in one of our lively city centre schools or one of our stunning beachside campuses, you will be studying in one of Australia’s finest destinations.

Australia is all about lifestyle: it’s about heading down for an early morning surf before school in Byron Bay, spotting koalas in Noosa’s national park, riding along the beachside cycle path as the sun sets in Perth, checking out a show on Brisbane’s popular Southbank or relaxing with friends after class at one of the Sunshine Coast’s many outdoor cafés.

With Lexis English, you become an important part of this unique lifestyle, you make new friends and experience a vibrant new world culture whilst identifying and achieving your learning objectives.

With a wide range of fully-accredited English programs for adults and juniors, we really do have something to meet everybody’s learning needs. 

Whether you are in Australia to brush up your conversation skills or to take on the challenge of IELTS or Cambridge exams, whether your aim is to learn to surf or to prepare to work and travel, we are here to guide you every step of the way.

...and how to make the most of it!

What you experience beyond the classroom is almost as important to us as what you learn inside it, these two aspects of your time with us combining to create a memorable life experience.

Our activity and excursion programs, our wide selection of accommodation options and our working holiday packages mean that you can take advantage of everything that Australia has to offer.
