English course in Sydney, Australia
An English course in Sydney will introduce you to one of the most captivating cities in the world! As the largest city in Australia, Sydney has nightlife, cultural attractions and cuisine to rival anywhere on Earth. What’s more, Sydney is home to countless beaches, including the famous Bondi Beach and the birthplace of surfing in Australia – Freshwater Beach.
One of the first things you’ll want to do is survey the stunning views of the harbour, with the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge looming over the iconic shape of the Sydney Opera House. On the south side of the bridge is The Rocks, a historic neighbourhood known for its colourful market, traditional pubs and sophisticated restaurants. Just outside of the city you’ll find amazing National Parks, completing the picture of Sydney as a city that truly does have everything!
Our school in Sydney
The prosperous neighbourhood of Surry Hills is home to our English language school. Shops, cafés, transport links and Sydney’s main sights are all within easy reach.

Learn English in Sydney at your own pace! Our school offers group-based courses comprising 15, 20 and 25 English lessons per week. Each program covers speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar, thereby improving your overall level of English.
If you’d like plenty of spare time for sightseeing, choose 15 or 20 classes per week, or select a more intensive course if you need to pick up the language very quickly.
Working with native speakers is one of the most effective ways to learn a language. Our school offers Work Experience placements with Australian companies, allowing you to improve your English by using it in everyday situations.
If you’re looking for a program focused entirely on doing business in Australia and the wider English-speaking world, our school’s Business English course is ideal! Lasting for a minimum of four weeks, the course covers topics such as business communications, management styles, negotiating, sales, marketing, customer service and networking.
For those students wishing to gain admission to an English language college or university, the Academic English course will raise your language skills to the required level. An excellent way to prove your level of English is by taking an examination in the language. Two of the most popular and well-respected exams are the Cambridge Exam and the IELTS test, both of which our school can ready you for with specialised preparation courses.
