Sydney is spectacular. A multicultural metropolis by the seaside, a surf town with a difference... take an English course in Sydney and fall in love with the capital of New South Wales.
The city sprawls out from its iconic harbour; the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge overlook a huge bay where whales swim for much of the year. The high-rise city centre is testament to Sydney’s status as one of the most important business hubs on the Pacific. Grand downtown streets were built during Australia’s first gold rush and now house many of the region’s major companies, giving the city a certain energy. In contrast, the laidback surf beach in Manly offers a completely different side to Sydney life, where the pace of life is easier and the waves matter most. And Bondi Beach – “the people’s beach” – is a mix of the two, where surf and city live side by side.
Sydney is naturally blessed, not only with superb year-round weather but with breathtaking surroundings. Although this is now a huge metropolis, you can still get a taste for what the first European settlers found in 1788 inland at the Blue Mountains, where the Three Sisters tower over the lush Jamison Valley. Inland, the Hunter wine valley is a peaceful getaway from the vibrant city centre. And the city is certainly lively! Major music venues, nightclubs of all sizes, a huge selection of restaurants, theatres, bars and festivals mean you can try something different every night of the week. Learn English in Sydney and find out why it has repeatedly been chosen as the world’s best city to live in.
