Located just 30 minutes from Sydney city centre, Manly is very popular with lovers of surfing, sailing and...cycling! The area is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the bay of Sydney, offering a great setting in which to live, learn and chill.

The Kaplan school enjoys a superb location, overlooking iconic Manly Beach on one side and giving directly onto Manly Promenade on the other. There are clubs, bars, cafés, restaurants and shops just outside the school and the white sandy beach lines the area. In the 15 air-conditioned classrooms of our partner school, spread over 3 floors, dedicated teachers will make use of modern audiovisual equipment (CD, DVD, TV, projectors) and their experience to help you improve your English skills. There is a computer room and a multimedia library on site. The school also includes a comfortable student lounge and Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the building. On each floor, a balcony offers a spectacular view of the ocean. The famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge are just 30 minutes away by ferry if you cross Sydney Harbour. You will have the chance to learn English in this dynamic and stimulating environment!

« Andare in un posto dove si parla solo inglese è la miglior soluzione per poter applicare quanto si impara a scuola. O anche semplicemente ascoltando le persone locali si può "rubare" il loro modo di parlare. »

Host family
It is by staying with an Australian host family that you will have the most opportunities to practise English. In everyday situations, you wil be more relaxed and will improve your language skills quickly. Our partner school chooses and regularly inspects the families who welcome you with the legendary hospitality of the "Aussies". Living at a distance of 20-60 minutes by public transport from the course centre, you will appreciate your single room and the possibility of sharing breakfast and the evening meal with your hosts. You will be able to use the washing machine and will benefit from full board at weekends.

Residence
If you wish to have more independence during your language study stay, you can decide for a residence. In Sydney Manly, the offer is vast. You have the choice between youth hostels of various styles and hotels of various levels of comfort. Our partner school recommends to international students who enrol for a long stay to spend the first 4 weeks in a host family and to then make the choice of their residence once they have settled in on-site.
Contact us for more information.
