Why learn English in Australia?
Popular with the adventurers among us, Australia offers the chance to learn English in a brand new environment, and experience the famously laid-back, easy-going Australian lifestyle first-hand. While it’s a long way across the oceans, Australia is a popular choice among ESL students, as the cost of living and price of language courses compared to other English-speaking cities around the world is often greatly reduced. On top of this, Australia is a welcoming, friendly country which will give you ample opportunity to practise and develop your language skills with students who travel from around the world to experience Australian life.
Is Australian English different?
Australian English is actually very similar to British English, through the history the two nations share and their cultural ties, still relevant today. The grammar you’ll learn if you study English in Australia is largely the same as the British English widely taught in Europe. Australia does use some different vocabulary, sometimes influenced by the USA, so you’ll be learning a more global English - an important life skill and asset if you want to learn English for business and travel!
