Vibrant coastal cities, incredible deserts in the heart of the country, an inexhaustible list of attractions and the ever-friendly Aussies will make your language study trip to Australia an unforgettable experience.
THE AUSSIE WAY OF LIFE
Life in Australia is predominantly based around the coastal regions. Major cities such as Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne are situated either right next to the sea or within close proximity. As a result, Australian life tends to revolve around the water. And it's no wonder, as Australia is home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, impressive surfing waves and fascinating underwater worlds. Australians love their outdoor sports and spend much of their free time on a surfboard, underwater or in the great outdoors. During your language study trip to Australia, you will be able to have a go at some of these activities and experience the Aussie way of life for yourself. And if you ever tire of the sea, there are plenty of other alternatives. The country's major cities offer a winning combination of culture, entertainment and leisure activities.
The Australian accent sounds like a mix of British and American English, and makes learning English in Australia particularly appealing. Many of Australia's language schools are located on the coast in major cities as well as in smaller, fascinating places such as Byron Bay, Noose and Airlie Beach. The outback provides a stark contrast to the sea. It spans more than three quarters of the country and is very sparsely populated. Depending on the region, the outback is either extremely hot and arid, or covered in tropical rainforest. It holds an almost magical allure for visitors. The flora and fauna also offer a new experience. Kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and tasmanian devils are worlds apart from the kind of creatures you'll be used to back home.
