Testimonials

Helena Gütschleg
Helena Gütschleg
EC, Melbourne
Duration: 4 weeks

Of my seven months in the country of Kangaroos, the 4 weeks of English course at the EC English school in Melbourne were the best one. I was in an amazing international class and the teachers were extremely committed. The language school is very well located in the city centre and the leisure and activity offer after school was always a great opportunity to visit the city and meet new people. It was an unforgettable experience, thank you so much ESL!

Host family
In a familial and secure environment, you will speak English and improve your ability to express yourself throughout your stay. Host family accommodation is the most popular option and allows you to advance quickly in the acquisition of the language. The families chosen by our partner school all live in residential areas, at a distance of a maximum of 1 hour from the course centre. You will stay in a single bedroom and benefit from half board and access to the laundry room of the house.

Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to book homestay accommodation and provide a parental consent form.

Urban Central residence
Settle in this comfortable residence located 15 minutes away by foot (or 10 minutes by tram) from the language centre. A few steps away from your accommodation, you will be able to enjoy markets, cafés, restaurants and shops in this neighbourhood where you can also find the Crown entertainment centre and the famous Casino. You will occupy a room with 4 beds with shared bathroom (en-suite bathroom also available). The rooms are cleaned every week and you will find bed linen and towels at your arrival. Common kitchens are at your disposal, as well as Laundromats, a bar for students, study spaces and game rooms. Breakfast is free, dinner is offered for AUD 1 and you can help yourself with pasta and rice everyday for free. Public transport stops in front of the residence.

Seasons Heritage

General information

Old-world charm meets modern convenience at Seasons Heritage. Set back from leafy St Kilda Road, the historic façade of this beautifully restored heritage-listed building sets it apart from its newer neighbours. A stay with Seasons Heritage is like stepping back in time, without giving up any modern creature comforts. You’re a minute's walk from the nearest tram stop and a 30-minute journey from Embassy English, making it easy to explore. You will also be a hop, skip and a jump away from Prahran's cafés, markets and vibrant nightlife as well as a 15-minute tram ride from the famous St Kilda Beach.

Our partner school offers a very wide range of activities, some of which are free while others are at a small charge. The programme includes pilates classes, various themed parties and excursions. A visit to the Melbourne Museum will give you insight into the culture of the Aborigines and allow you to have a unique experience when watching the film in IMAX format. The Queen Victoria Market is an open-air market in the centre of Melbourne and a melting pot of lifestyles, which will charm you with its cosmopolitan and lively atmosphere. St. Kilda is the place to be if you wish to discover what was long ago a disreputable district of the city, turned today into a centre of attractions with dozens of restaurants, bars, cafes and beaches where music is omnipresent. A tour of the city, an excursion to the Yarra Valley, reputed for its wine growing, boat outings on the Ocean: everything is possible, you will love it!
