I am writing to you regarding my stay on the Gold Coast in Australia. I have been living in a homestay in Main Beach and have been learning English at BROWNS English Language School for 7 months. My homestay is situated approximately 25 minutes by foot from the school. I chose to live in a homestay to have the opportunity to practise my English. When I arrived to Australia, it was quite hard to understand my host family because of their accent but, after a couple of days, it was getting better and better so don’t be scared about that.
One of my friends recommended me to come in Australia to learn English because of the weather, the beaches and finally the great places to travel here. Actually, I am pretty satisfied with my trips around Australia. I have already been to Melbourne, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Noosa, Whitsundays Island and Fraser Island. On the top of that, I am going to Sydney for a while before going back to Switzerland. I am a little bit disappointed that I haven’t had enough time to visit New Zealand, which is at only 3 hours by plane from the Gold Coast airport.
Besides that, I have met a lot of people from several different countries in the school, such as: Brazil, Czech Republic, Colombia, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and Switzerland.
