English Course on the Gold Coast

For many international students who come from a non-English speaking background, their university post-graduate course requires them to enrol in one of the English courses offered by these schools as a pre-requisite. The idea behind such a request is to ensure these students develop a good grasp of the English language before undertaking a complex technical course that will be taught in the English language.

English Course Gold Coast Testimonials

Why did you choose Australia?

My friend went to Australia to study, but to Melbourne. In order to be closer to her, I also decided to stay in Australia for a longer period.

And why the Gold Coast?

I wanted to go to the sea and where there was something going on. I am now moving to the language school in Sydney. Four months of Gold Coast is enough for me, I need something new.

How do you get on in a foreign country?

It is going well. It is much easier to find an apartment or a job. Everything is simply more flexible and uncomplicated.

How do you get on with the language?

That was very fast. If you speak English all the time, you get better and better.

What is it like to be a student here?

It makes everything a lot easier. Friends can be found very quickly and the language school organizes many tours that are much cheaper.

What do you do in your free time?

I like to go to pubs in the evening and meet friends. I ride my bike a lot and I'm in a football club.

Do you have any tips for people who also want to come to Australia?

Travel a lot. You should take as many impressions from this country as possible. Sometimes you only have to drive 20 minutes and you think you are in another country.

What do you think about Australians?

I don't deal with so many Australians because I know almost all of my friends from the language school. But I've only had positive experiences in shops and restaurants.

A few final words?

It's very nice here, but I miss my home very much. I couldn't stay forever.
