Australia es muy caro. pero el cambio de divisa respecto el euro ayuda un poco.hay que ir preparado económicamente.la ciudad de Sydney es muy grande. creo que deberían cercar la distancia de las homestay ya que te puede tocar a mas de una hora de la escuela. y el transporte es muy caro (no creo que la gente lo tenga valorado. sería bueno estimárselo) Internet iba muy mal.al igual que la calefaccion/aire acondicionado Excesivo numero de asiáticos en niveles bajos de ingles. hace complicado la relación. Excesivas normas dentro de la casa. demasiado estricto, excesivo. (ej: tenia una cena con amigos y a las 10 el casero me hizo echarles de casa, sin estar montando escandalo ni nada) la calidad de la casa dejaba mucho que desear. los baños no estaban a la altura para una casa de 10 estudiantes. y la cocina una chapuza (todo muy viejo y descuidado) y un frigorífico para 10?? ni lo comento. internet no llegaba correctamente a todas las habitaciones. Muy flojo. no ayuda a que la gente participe. a parte poca implicación en que los responsables.he realizado alguna actividad en que eramos 3, hasta en una se anulo porque solo estaba yo apuntado.debería ser más comprometido. y ayudar a que haya más unión entre las diferentes culturas de los estudiantes.

« Blue mountains. lugar increíble, pero no veo normal que la escuela lo ofrezca por 150dolares, cuando un tren en domingo te lleva por 3dolares ida y vuelta. »

Testimonials

Christelle Germann
Christelle Germann

In the school, the CAE preparation courses were challenging, the teachers were very good, the atmosphere excellent, and the students came from the whole world. Staying with a host family is really the best way to be sure to speak English and improve your skills, since you can talk about everything, otherwise they were very friendly so I felt like at home. Sydney, the best spot ever, is a bustling city, there is always something to see, do, or places to visit whether during the week or in the weekend, different neighbourhoods with different cultures, many beaches located only 30 minutes away from the town centre.

Before I left for my language course, I asked myself many questions. What city? What course? What accommodation option? After discussing it with my friends and with an ESL consultant, I chose Australia!
So I went to Sydney to take a 3-month “natural English” course at the ELC school. It was the first time I was actually happy to go to school in the morning, the lessons were very interesting, the teacher was exceptional and my classmates were great! Through the school, I met many people of different nationalities and from different backgrounds with whom I had a great time and I learned a lot…
Regarding accommodation, I stayed in a student residence for a month, and once again it was great! As soon as I arrived, I met my roommates, who were of different nationalities, and I immediately felt comfortable because, even though we all had a different level of English, we could understand each other very well.
In the student residence, I learnt not to be embarrassed when speaking English because all of the students there went to the same school as me and attended the same type of courses as me.
About Sydney… The city is just huge! There are so many things to do and see that I never got bored! There are students all over the place, you meet lots of people everywhere and it is a great place for going out!

Sydney is a fantastic city for an English course! The atmosphere in the city is thrilling and the nearby beaches are amazing. I really enjoyed staying at the ELC student House, where you can meet many people from all over the world. What’s more, it is very close to the school.
For me, ELC is one of the best language schools in Australia. From the first day onwards, I felt comfortable there. The staff is really friendly and always available. I also liked the Cambridge course: my teacher was great and the lessons were very interesting. I significantly improved my English.
My “Aussie” experience will remain one of the greatest things in my life, forever engraved on my memory! I can say that I am really happy I met such friendly people and made such rapid progress in English!
