Ma famille d'accueil était très gentille. Si j'avais un problème, ils m'aident. Je pouvais pratiquer mon Anglais avec eux.La cuisine était très bonne, il cuisinait exprès des repas végétariens pour moi.Ils ont tout fait pour que je me sente bien chez eux pendant ces 10 semaines.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui, j'ai fait énormément de progrès. Je suis restée au même niveau (intermédiaire), car je ne suis pas restée assez longtemps à l'école (seulement 10 semaines). Ma professeure m'a dit que j'avais fait de très bon progrès, elle m'aurait fait monté d'un niveau si j'avais continuer l'école.J'ai eu de la chance, car j'avais les cours de l'après-midi et il n'y avait aucun français dans ma classe. Je parlais donc toute les journées en anglais. J'ai pu créer des amitiés avec des étudiants de d'autres pays. »
School highlights
« Mes professeures, elle étaient juste super. Elles donnaient très bien leurs cours, elles avaient la passion d'enseigner leur langue.J'ai fait pleins de rencontre grâce à l'école, cela permet de créer un petit réseaux de connaissances. »

Embassy Brisbane est une école super bien située et avec un staff et des professeurs juste au top ! Les cours sont sympa et tout est dans la bonne humeur. Je recommanderais en tout cas aux futures étudiants d'aller à Embassy ! Mon expérience aura été incroyable.Le début est difficile car il faut s'habituer à un tas de choses en un coup mais il faut toujours rester focus sur l'expérience incroyable que vous allez vivre et quand ça ne va pas dites vous "c'est juste différent". Ne vous dites pas "c'est nul, Je n'aime pas".

Excelente destino para vivir una experiencia fuera del país. Si el deseo es estudiar y viajar es el destino perfecto, si se quiere trabajar al mismo tiempo es muy difícil poder encontrar algo, existe demasiada competencia. La escuela se encuentra bien ubicada, sin embargo el primer mes de homestay estuve ubicada muy lejos.

Host family
In order to progress with the language, sharing in the daily life of an Australian family is obviously a huge advantage. Not only will you learn how the "Aussies" live and what they do in their leisure time, but the informal contact with your hosts will help you feel at ease with English very quickly. You can reach the school by train, by bus or by ferry, depending on your family's location, in an average of 30 minutes. You will stay in a single bedroom and receive half board. The bathroom and the living room are to be shared with the members of the family.

Adalong Guest House (from 18 years, minimum 2 weeks)
Students from throughout the world are provided with half board during the week (breakfast only on weekends and bank holidays) in this guest house, which includes 25 single bedrooms. Only 20 minutes' walk from the city centre and the school, the house is close to everything: the train station, bus stops and the South Bank Parklands are nearby. The building is surrounded by a well-maintained garden. Internet access is available at an extra charge and the same goes for the use of the laundry room. A common room with a wide-screen television for watching videos or DVDs, a landscaped garden and a glass conservatory bring residents together for lively discussions, always in English !
