Un très bon accueil, mais étant partie en hiver la maison n'était pas chauffée. J'ai donc eu extrêmement froid et je n'étais pas à mon aise dans la maison. Je note aussi que pour les repas du midi durant le weekend elle préparai seulement un sandwich ce qui n'était pas suffisant (pour moi).

L'école ISLC Melbourne est idéalement située dans le centre ville, proche de tout les transports en commun (train, tram, bus ...). L'école se trouve sur deux niveaux dans un immeuble récent et l'environnement de l'école est tres agréable pour étudier. L'ambiance générale est décontractée mais studieuse. Les professeurs sont intéressants et sympas, et les classes ne sont pas surchargées se qui rend l'ambience de travail tres agréable.

Soggiorno indimenticabile: città di Melbourne, NZ, molto carina e bella da visitare. Scuola molto apprezzata sia per l’insegnamento sia per gli studenti che, benché giovani, non facevano differenze di età. Studenti perlopiù asiatici, in minoranza colombiani e spagnoli. Mi sono trovata perfettamente a mio agio. Ripetere l’esperienza per una durata assai più lunga. Scuola ben ubicata in centri vicino alla stazione e raggiungibile a piedi. Prezzo buono e insegnanti molto impegnati e disponibili con tutti. Insegnamento che coinvolgente con piccoli giochi di gruppo che favorivano scambi linguistici e culturali Da consigliare Non ho partecipato alle loro attività innanzitutto andavo alla scoperta della città assieme a mia figlia impegnata per delle conferenze, inoltre le attività si adattavano a coloro che si fermavano più a lungo
