Our partner school is located on the famous Sunset Coast, just steps from Scarborough Beach! Separated from the beach by a row of bars, clubs, restaurants and internet cafés, and just 15 minutes by public transport from the centre of Perth, the school houses 16 bright and comfortable classrooms. All of the rooms are arranged around a sunny patio, where there is also a cafeteria. There's a kitchen at the students' disposal and a games room where you can socialise. Computers with internet access are available to students and Wi-Fi is free throughout the building. The unique location of the school, close to the most beautiful beaches, is also reflected in the interior of the course centre: windsurfing boards suspended on the walls, lots of sunlight and bright colours mirror the energy and vitality of the premises.

La mia insegnante è stata Sharon e l'ho adorata fin dal primo giorno! Crea un rapporto bellissimo con ogni studente, è piena di iniziative e sempre sorridente, il suo modo di insegnare è tutto fuorché noioso! Perth é una bellissima città, fin da quando ero piccola era il mio sogno andarci e finalmente si è realizzato. Questa esperienza è stata fin'ora una delle più belle della mia vita, la rifarei mille volte! Non abbiate paura di prendere e partire per una nuova avventura perché la vita è una sola!

« Oui. Le fait d'être dans un environnement anglophone permet d'apprendre plus rapidement la langue. Je pense que d'avoir choisi une famille d'accueil comme hébergement aide aussi beaucoup au progrès fait durant ces 3 mois à Perth. »
School highlights
« L'école se situe tout près de la plage mais on y trouve également tout le nécessaire, supermarché, restaurants, bars. Les enseignants sont très ouverts et font tout leur possible pour diversifier les cours. »
Top tips
« En choisissant Perth comme destination linguistique, il faut absolument se rendre en excursion dans la Swan Valley mais aussi effectuer un roadtrip au sud (Margaret River, Busselton, etc) ou au nord (pinnacles). Le centre ville de Perth est aussi à ne pas manquer. Selon la saison, un rooftop movie est installé en plein centre ville, des festivals sont également présents. »

Die Schule befand sich in einem Gebäude welches doch schon etwas veraltet war. Einige Inventare waren sehr abgenutzt bzw. kaputt. Andere Räume hatten nicht einmal natürliches Tageslicht. Dennoch war es eine gute Schule. Die Schule bietet Freizeitaktivitäten an, wobei die Wochenendaktivitäten gar nicht von der Schule, sondern von der Travel-Agency Peter Pans angeboten wird. Dies ist recht irreführend, wenn man annimmt, dass man eine Tour gebucht hat, die mit Lehrern und anderen Studenten unternommen wird. Ein weiterer Kritikpunkt ist, dass man zwar etwas Drucken kann, aber dies recht umständlich gestaltet wird und auch nicht jederzeit möglich ist und man am Ende noch dafür bezahlen muss. Es war zwar nur ein kleiner Betrag, der nicht wehtut, aber ich finde man kann als Kunde erwarten 3 Papierblätter kostenlos zu drucken solange es nicht das Mass übersteigt. Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Familie, die sich weit mehr für uns engagiert haben als sie hätten müssen.

Lexis English, Perth
Duration: 3 months

Ciaoooo! I had the unique opportunity to go to Australia for 3 months to improve my English skills, while keeping my job back in Switzerland. I don’t regret the choice of this destination! Perth and its surroundings are a little corner of paradise in West Australia; the moments I spent there were magic. Even if I stayed only for 3 months, my English has improved a lot and the experience has been incredible enriching; I met lots of people from all over the world and discovered a very warm and “clubbing” Australian population! ☺ I recommend to any Swiss person who wants to clear his/her Swiss and stressful mind to go to Australia: when they’ll go back home, they’ll be all fresh and ready to start their life again, with the head full of great memories! Oh, and the beach is 2 minutes away from the school…! If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me!

I went to Perth for 6 months, to the “Lexis English School”. The school is small and ideally located only 2 minutes away from Scarborough Beach and 30 minutes away from the city centre by public transports. I really enjoyed living in Perth because it’s not too big, there are many stunning beaches and the area of Northbridge is great if you like to party. Going to Australia was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone!

Lexis English, Perth
Duration: 8 weeks

I spent two months at Lexis School in Perth, which is located in Scarborough, a beautiful neighbourhood along the ocean where you can find many nice bars and restaurants! The school is 5 minutes away by foot from the beaches and 15 minutes away from the student house where I have lived with other students from the school.

The city centre as well as all its attractions (big parks, restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs) are located a bit more than 30 minutes away by public transport (bus and/or train).

Perth is a “small” city (1.5 million inhabitants) but it is full of life and events of all kind! People are very welcoming and they are used to students and tourists, given the cultural diversity that there is within the biggest Australian west coast city. Many sites and natural parks are reachable by car from Perth, in the north as well as in the south: you must absolutely visit them!
