SEA, Sydney Manly
Duration: 6 months

Destination: Sidney. Apprehension and excitement. I sadly said goodbye to my family and friends and I keep asking myself: “What I am doing on this plane? Will I resist there for 6 months? Is this a good decision?”. Today, my answer is definitely YES! Thirty hours later, when I saw one of the best views of Sidney (Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge), I knew that I had made the right choice and that I was about to live one of the best experiences of my life. Apart from learning English (which I speak fluently now), this has been an incredible human experience. I spent 6 amazing months in Manly and I was lucky enough to have the best host family ever! Despite a few tiny issues such as health problems, homesickness or practical issue that happen when you cross Australia from north to south, I can only recommend this destination; take the risk and find yourself! 09.07.11: Destination: Geneva, Switzerland. This time, sad tears go down my cheeks because I don’t want to leave my Australian family and this beautiful country. Despite the difficult goodbyes, I certainly am much happier than a year ago and I cannot wait to travel again and discover new places.

Hi there on the other side of the earth. Manly is beautiful, I love the city. It’s quite because it’s wet the typical season for travellers but it’s still beautiful. The school is tops. I already learned a lot, vocabulary, grammar and useful sentences. I live in a host family with two children and a dog; it’s a funny and lovely family. I have a lot this to talk with them and they are also really interested in me. A great thanks to the organisation of ESL I never had problem yet, and it was a short and much uncomplicated preparation I can recommend Manly to everyone it’s wonderful and if you have time, dry to join a sport club that to get to learn the activities.

I liked this school for its friendly atmosphere and the quality of the courses. I greatly improved my English and my listening skills are better now. I would like to go back there as soon as possible. The atmosphere is great and I felt comfortable there. It is very easy to make new friends at SEA in this friendly environment. The teachers are very professional and nice. They have lots of time to devote to students. The large beach of Manly is gorgeous. A great mentality and friendly atmosphere prevails. The food is good too!!! A tip: I recommend the mussels at the Four Pines restaurant… simply delicious!!!
