Brisbane ist eine wunderbare Stadt mit vieles Ausflugsmöhlichkeiten und sehr netten Leuten. Schule ist wunderbar im Zentrum gelegen mit sehr guter Infrastruktur. Natürlich sind in der Schule sehr viele Asiaten, trotzdem gibt es genug andere Nationalitäten. Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Lehrpersonen. Dynamik in der Gruppe war sehr gut. Zimmer sind eher klein und sehr einfach, aber ausreichend. Alles in allem eine super Erfahrung die man auf jeden Fall einmal machen sollte. ESL kann ich als Agentur nur weiterempfehlen, bei mir sind keinerlei Probleme aufgetreten.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui malgré la courte durée de mon séjour, il m'a permis d'interagir 24h/24 en anglais donc j'ai pu progresser dans la compréhension de l'accent australien et j'ai appris du vocabulaire. »

Ich habe in meinen 15 Wochen Sprachschule ausschließlich Englisch sprechen können, was eine super Erfahrung war, da ich so fähig war in einer kurzen Zeit große Fortschritte zu machen. Australien ist ein traumhaftes Land und Brisbane eine tolle Stadt, was den Aufenthalt umso besser gemacht hat. Ich war sehr zufrieden und auch wenn es ein paar Probleme gab, kann ich nur sehr empfehlen mit ESL mit zu reisen, da sie versuchen Probleme so schnell wie möglich aus der Welt zu schaffen. Da ich meine Reise sehr kurzfristig gebucht habe, bin ich auch sehr zufrieden, weil alles super schnell geklappt hat und man trotzdem versucht hat mir die bestmöglichen Angebote zu bieten.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ich habe sehr große Fortschritte erzielt, nicht nur im Englischen, ich habe auch so Fortschritte gemacht. Mein Selbstbewusstsein war schon immer vorhanden, aber ich habe es, zum Beispiel sehr schwierig gefunden vor Leuten einen Vortrag zu halten, was sich hier komplett geändert hat. Des weiteren habe ich mir innerhalb von kürzester Zeit ein komplett neues Leben in Australien aufgebaut, was ich vorher nicht für möglich gehalten habe. »
Top tips
« Mein Ratschlag ist, auf jeden Fall einen Sprachkurs zu machen und dann sollte es schon einer sein, bei dem man am Ende ein Zertifikat in der Hand hält, was bei Cambridge sogar ein ganzes Leben hält. des weiteren sollte man am Ende seines Aufenthalt definitv genügend Zeit mitbringen um noch etwas zu Reisen, da Wochenenden für manche Ziele einfach zu kurz sind. Und sonst sollte man einfach versuchen so viel Zeit wie möglich draußen zu verbringen, weil egal für welche Stadt man sich entscheidet, es so viele Möglichkeiten gibt und einem nie langweilig wird. »

I really enjoyed my stay at Browns Brisbane. Teachers are all friendly and really help us to improve our english. The school is really nice and there’s a lot to do in the city! I also really enjoyed to stay with my host family, they were lovely and they make me feel comfortable from the first day!

I chose Brisbane because it is a big and modern city and the weather is wonderful here. The city offers a lot of different activities which I enjoy very much. The school itself is very modern and has a great infrastructure.

At the beginning of November, I went to Australia for a 7-week course, but then I saw that I was progressing so fast that I decided to stay 5 weeks longer; so in the end, I spent 3 months there. It was an incredibly rich experience, thanks to my English improvement but also to the people I met there, coming from Colombia, Brazil, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Chile and more. The school is in Brisbane’s city centre and has a nice view on King George Square. My teachers were really good, the environment was pleasant and I really started to love the language. I was lucky because I was the only French in my class, so I could speak English all the time. This is definitely one of the best schools in Brisbane if you want to improve your English while enjoying the good weather every day.
