Generell war es die beste Erfahrung, die ich je gemacht habe. Sydney ist eine sehr schöne Stadt. Alle Mitarbeiter der Schule sind sehr offene Personen und geben ihr bestes, jemandem bei allen Fragen/Probleme zu helfen. Die Lektionen waren sehr abwechslungs- und lehrreich. Man spürte die Passion des Berufes von unserem Lehrer. Das Verhältnis zwischen den Schülern und den Lehrern ist sehr kollegial. Die Stimmung war immer sehr locker und lustig. Wir waren fast wie eine Familie. Das Surfweekend kann ich bestens weiterempfehlen.

Meine Sprachreise in Australien war die beste Zeit meines Lebens. Australien ist ein wunderschönes Land, wo es an jeder Ecke etwas neues zu entdecken gibt. Sydney ist eine atemberaubende Stadt mit vielen Möglichkeiten. Die Schule war zentral gelegen und man konnte mit den nahe gelegenen Bushaltestellen jedes Ziel schnell erreichen. Die Schule hat einen ganz anderen Aufbau, als die in Europa. Die Lehrer sind sehr freundlich. Wenn man ein Problem hat kann man mit Ihnen reden. Die Klassenräume sind gut ausgestattet. Viele Studenten kommen aus Südamerika, besonders Kolumbien ist oft vertreten. Außerdem kommen viele aus Asien und nicht ganz so viele aus Europa. Insgesamt hat die Schule aber einen sehr guten Eindruck auf mich gemacht. Der Unterricht hatte immer einen guten Aufbau. Als ich nach Australien gereist bin, war mein Englisch nicht gut. Ich konnte kaum sprechen und hatte auch nicht viel Ahnung von der Grammatik. Durch das viele Sprechen und den Unterricht in der Schule hat es sich um einiges verbessert. Ich habe keine Probleme mehr eine Konversation zu halten, sowie Texte zu schreiben. Großen Anteil daran hat die Schule mit den kleineren Klassen. Die Lehrer gehen auf Fragen ein und man hat auch untereinander ein gutes Verhältnis. Für mich war es das erste mal mit einer anderen Familie zu leben. Anfangs war es noch etwas komisch, aber am Ende fiel mir der Abschied schwer. Sharon und Walther Bartelme sind eine sehr gute Gastfamilie. Man kann jederzeit mit Ihnen reden. Die Zimmer entsprechen aller Voraussetzungen und die Verpflegung ist sehr gut. Wenn ich Zeit und Lust hatte, bin ich mit Walther ins nächst gelegene Stadion gegangen um Rugby Spiele zu schauen. Wenn man ein Problem hatte konnte man mit beiden reden. Besonders Sharon fragte oft wie der Tag gewesen sei. Das einzige Problem ist, dass es zu weit von der Schule entfernt ist. Wenn man am Wochenende abends nachhause fahren will, muss man meistens lange auf den Zug oder den Bus warten. Die Schule bietet jeden Tag unterschiedliche Aktivitäten an. Nach der Schule gibt es meistens extra Kurse, wo man mit anderen Studenten sprechen kann und sein Englisch verbessern kann. Zudem bieten sie Freitags unterschiedliche Trips an. Vom Zoo Besuch bis zum Barbecue am Strand. Zusätzlich gibt es alle paar Wochenenden ein Surfcamp, welches ich auch besucht habe. Eine wundervolle Erfahrung, die jeder gemacht haben muss. Vielen Dank für die tolle Sprachreise. Am Anfang war ich skeptisch, weil es ein großer Schritt für mich war in ein so fernes Land zu gehen. Ich schätze das ich zurück nach Australien gehen will, weil die drei Monate eine wirklich tolle Erfahrung waren.
