Australia’s multicultural metropolis on the Pacific coast, a surf city with a twist... Sydney is a great place to be! An English course in Sydney allows you to discover the capital of New South Wales on your own terms.
Sprawling out from its famous harbour, where the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House are instantly recognisable, Sydney is a diverse city. Different neighbourhoods have different appeals. The city centre business district drives Sydney’s economy and gives the city energy. The big avenues of the city centre were constructed during Australia’s nineteenth-century gold rush and now house many large companies. Ten kilometres north, laidback Manly offers a completely different perspective on Sydney life, where surfing comes first! And Bondi Beach – “the people’s beach” – is somewhere between the two, where surf and work live side by side in sublime surroundings.
But there’s more to Sydney than a great urban environment. Great weather throughout the year encourages visitors to enjoy the sublime surroundings. It’s easy to imagine what the first European settlers felt when you leave the city and head to the lush Jamison Valley, home of the Blue Mountains. Of course, the local aborigines knew about it tens of thousands of years earlier. The Hunter wine valley offers another alternative retreat from the lively city centre... and the city is certainly lively! Music venues for all tastes with bands and DJs every night of the week, restaurants, bars, theatres, nightclubs and regular festivals will keep you well entertained! Sydney is often called the world’s best city to live in. Learn English in Sydney with ESL and find out why!
