Ville dynamiqueMixité culturelleTrès bon réseau de transports Très facile de se restaurer Bonne école, mais la section « Général English » est un peu superficielle.J’ai été ravie de suivre la préparation à l’exam Cambridge, qui elle, vaut le prix des cours. Les professeurs ont su comment transmettre les connaissances et préparer au mieux à l’examen.

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!

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!
