Our partner school is housed in an elegant, three-storey manor in Colonial style, surrounded by beautiful gardens. The renovated classrooms are comfortable and - charming little detail - still heated with wood fireplaces in winter. The school has a computer room and access to a balcony overlooking the garden. Only 10 minutes' walk from the city centre, the school is close to shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as a magnificent waterfront area.

Hobart est une ville très sympa avec son Mont Wellington qui lui donne beaucoup de charme. Active sans être trop grosse c'est un bon compromis pour ceux qui aiment la ville sans aimer les métropoles. La Tasmanie est juste une île magnifique avec de multiples choix d'activité et de très beaux paysages. On m'avait dit que l'hiver y était rude, je n'ai pas trouvé. C'est une vieille batisse, et comme beaucoup de bâtiments australiens, il peu y faire froid de temps en temps. Ils ont quand même des radiateurs. L'environnement était très sympa, les enseignants parfait. Et j'ai été surprise par la diversité des nationalités. Je m'attendais à être entourée d'asiatiques mais il y a avait aussi des chiliens, tchèques, polonais, italiens... Le logement en famille d'accueil est un super compromis et coûte moins cher que de devoir se loger et se nourrir (en Tasmanie en tout cas).Cela permet aussi d'avoir des conseils sur les activités à faire et cela permet de parler anglais avec des personnes natives.

« Je suis partie avec un niveau correct et juste le besoin de me rassurer et d'être en confiance pour parler. En cela, l'immersion pendant un mois a été plus que bénéfique.J'ai donc repris confiance en moi, réviser ma grammaire et améliorer mon expression orale.J'ai même eu le chance de changer de niveau au bout de 15 jours. »
