Courses in Sydney

Available courses

    Learn English in Sydney at your own pace! Our school offers group-based courses comprising 15 or 25 English lessons per week, with each lesson lasting 60 minutes. The Semi-Intensive course covers the general English language skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar, thereby improving your overall level of English.

    Students who opt for the Super Intensive course of 25 lessons per week attend the general English classes mentioned above, and also five hours of special focus modules and five hours of English ‘Extras’. The special focus topics available vary according to level, and include communication, grammar and speaking, ‘real’ English, English for further studies and exam preparation. The English ‘Extras’ are made up of a selection of workshops, activities and classes, giving students the opportunity to personalise their course to suit their own interests and goals. The ‘Extras’ subjects include conversation practise, business English, survival English, exam skills, and ‘English in the City’, which involves getting out into Sydney to take part in an activity or visiting a place of interest. Options vary from week to week according to student requests and demand. Furthermore, all Super Intensive students can also join conversation classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays (one hour each day) should they wish to!

    If you would like to include some personalised tuition in your programme you can book the above course with five extra private lessons.

    An excellent way to prove your level of English is by taking an examination in the language. The school offer preparation courses for students taking the Cambridge Exam or the IELTS exam, and it is also possible to include business English lessons in your programme as well.

    Available accommodation

      Live with the locals for a true taste of the Australian way of life! Our school arranges host family accommodation on a half-board basis (two meals per day included). Your family will quickly make you feel welcome and mealtimes will provide valuable English practise too. Rooms are furnished with a single or double bed, desk and wardrobe, and bed linen and towels will be provided. All families live close to public transport links, making it easy to travel to and from the school and city centre.

      If you and you will be studying for at least two weeks and would rather stay within walking distance of the school, choose student residence accommodation. Students staying for at least ten weeks also have the option to stay in premium shared apartment accommodation. Both options are located just a ten-minute walk away from the school, and naturally, the city centre locations also mean that many Sydney attractions are just steps away.

      The student residence is in Ultimo and is made up of shared houses, with each house accommodating 8-10 students. You can choose a single, twin or triple room (if you are travelling alone you will be placed with a roommate/s of the same gender), and each bedroom has a wardrobe and desk for when you need a quiet spot to do homework. Bed linen is provided but you should pack your own towels. You will share the fully-equipped kitchen and the two bathrooms with the other international students who choose this accommodation option. There is also air-conditioning in the lounge and kitchen area, a computer for students to use, free Wi-Fi, and coin-operated laundry facilities. This accommodation type is only available for students who will study at the school for at least two weeks.

      For students staying at least ten weeks there is also the option to book premium shared apartment accommodation. Located in a larger student residence, each apartment has six spacious, ensuite single bedrooms and a large shared lounge and kitchen area. In addition to the private bathroom, all bedrooms have air-conditioning, desk, ample storage space, and individual Internet account via a LAN cable at each desk (in addition to the free Wi-Fi that is available throughout the building). Bed linen is also provided. Socialise with your fellow students in the modernly decorated lounge with television, and enjoy cooking together in the fully-equipped shared kitchen. The building also offers excellent communal facilities, including an outside BBQ area, cinema room, social area and games room.


      It’s important to us that you enjoy your English course in Sydney as much as possible, so our school arranges an exciting program of after-class and weekend activities.
