Ich hatte eine unglaublich schöne Zeit bei meiner Gastfamilie. ESL konnte mir stehts per Mail und Telefon alle Fragen vor und während dem Aufenthalt beantworten. Meine Gastfamilie war sehr offen und hat mich sofort in ihr Familienleben eingeschlossen. Man kann sehr viel Unternehmen an der Gold Coast, Australien. Die Öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel sind günstig und man hat immer gute Verbindungen. Die Browns Schule ab 18 Jahren war sehr gut. Unsere Lehrer boten einen abwechslungsreichen und sehr lehrreichen Unterricht. Man lernt auch sehr einfach neue Freunde in der Schule und in der Stadt kennen. Es hatte keine anderen Schweizer dort oder Deutschsprechende, als ich dort war, was sehr gut war. Die Browns Schule hatte einen sehr guten Nationalitäten-Mix für mich als Europäerin. Die Lehrer waren immer freundlich und professionell. Die Schule hat viele Aktivitäten angeboten und man konnte direkt in der Schule seine Reise günstiger planen, als in Reisebüros. Die Schule ist sehr gut gelegen, man erreicht sie in wenigen Gehminuten von der Tramstation. Die Schule liegt in der Nähe von Australia Fair, ein riesen Shopping Center, das viele Möglichkeiten bietet, sich zu unterhalten oder einkaufen zu gehen. Man kann auch mit dem Auto direkt neben der Schule parken. Wir hatten einen super Nationalitäten-Mix und haben uns trotz den verschiedenen Kulturen sehr gut verstanden und täglich miteinander Exkursionen unternommen.

L’Australie est un magnifique pays ! Gold Coast est davantage un endroit pour profiter de la plage et des soirées entre amis, mais reste tout de même une magnifique ville ! Les gens sont vraiment tous gentils ! Niveau sécurité : aucun souci à se faire. On peut se balader à 3h du matin tout seul et en totale sécurité ! En résumé : un endroit incroyable et inoubiable !!! Browns est une école très sérieuse avec des enseignants qui aiment leur métier et qui aiment découvrir de nouvelles personnes chaque semaine ! Tous les étudiants sont super sympas ! Je faisais de nouvelles connaissances chaque jour. Enseignants très aimables et appliqués ! Mon prof était toujours content de recevoir de nouveaux élèves ! Il les mettait tout de suite à l’aise pour qu’ils se sentent au mieux pendant les cours ! Merci pour tout ! Votre agence permet à des milliers de personnes de s’épanouir le temps d’un voyage à l’autre bout du monde ! Je n’oublierai jamais cette expérience qui, sans doute, est la meilleur aventure que je n’ai jamais vécue de ma vie :)

I chose Gold Coast because here there is always something to do and see. Surf, parties, and much more! The school and the accommodation are great, especially the apartments. I can only recommend this experience to everyone!

My dream had always been to travel to Australia and I decided to go there for a few months. But first, I needed to have some knowledge in English ! I decided to go to a language school to learn and to improve this language! The school I chose was Browns Language School, a school situated in Southport, just next to the famous city of Surfers Paradise. The teachers encouraged me in my studies and were always were dynamic, friendly and well-organised. In BROWNS I met lots of new friends, and not only friends from Switzerland, but friend from Asia and South America. It was so interesting for me to discover new cultures ! BROWNS organised lots of nice activites where I could meet wonderful people and develop a good relationship with them.

The school is simply great! It is centrally located and just a 10-minute bus ride away from Surfers Paradise. The teachers are fantastic and, apart from teaching us the language, they bring us closer to Australian culture. Here everybody makes sure we feel comfortable. Besides, we can go online whenever we want. In the school, you can only speak English. At first, it’s hard to get used to it, but you soon manage to make friends from other countries. The Gold Coast is also fabulous; there are tons of beautiful beaches, which can be easily reached by bus. You can also go on a weekend trip to Brisbane of Fraser Island. Sidney and Melbourne are also quite close by plane.
