Hi my name is Natacha and I’m 16 years old. I live in New Caledonia with my family where I speak French. At my school in New Caledonia I am learning English and also Spanish which I really enjoy. I am really happy going to BROWNS English Language School in Southport. I have met some lovely people and the teachers are nice. There are many different nationalities at BROWNS and it’s been a good experience for me. I enjoy the schooling system here and the people. At BROWNS everybody has a smile on their face and they seem to be enjoying life. I have been coming to the Gold Coast for many years with my parents. Last year I was talking with my parents and they suggested that I might like to go to an English school where I can improve my grammar and speaking skills. The Gold Coast was my first choice and that is why I am here. I am hoping that sometime soon I can come back to the Gold Coast and continue my English studies. During my stay on the Gold Coast I have been staying with a homestay family in Runaway Bay. The Robinson family have been very helpful to me on my many occasions. They have made me feel like their home is my home and I have enjoyed having conversations with then in English. I will miss them when I leave on Sunday. On the weekends when I am not at school I have been to theme parks and shopping with my friends. I love the beaches here also. There are many fun things to do on the Gold Coast.

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!

Hi guys,

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.

The Browns English School is very modern and has very good installations. I recommend the Browns Luxury Appartments, only 10 minutes away from the school. The shopping centre, the bus stop and other useful things are also walking distance. And sharing a flat with other students is so much fun! Southport is ideally located if you want to go on excursions during weekends. Byron Bay, Brisbane and Noosa are easily reachable by car. Surfer Paradise is very close and you can reach it by bus in about 10 minutes. If you like to party and enjoy life, this is the perfect place: there’s always something to do and you will never get bored. The best party is every Thursday at Melbas… don’t miss it! On top of this, there are multiple theme parks around. It was an incredible trip and I recommend this place to anyone who wants to live something very special.

At school, during English classes, I always speak German with my classmates, so – for once – I wanted to be forced to speak English at all time. In the beautiful and modern Browns English Language School, I had the chance to try that for the first time, in a very pleasant environment. I really loved the Gold Coast; there are plenty of leisure and excursion opportunities. The school is located in Southport, a great starting point to take a bus and visit the beautiful beaches on the Pacific. At Surfer Paradise, for example, you can find anything you want: restaurants, clubs, shops and museums. In short, I loved my language stay in Gold Coast, Australia. I really wanted to make this experience and now I can say that it was worth it! My trip was perfectly organized and followed by ESL.

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.

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.
