Language School Sydney — Eurocentres: Grand opera for English students
Sydney: a harbour city that is second to none, a port of call for backpackers and thrill seekers from all over the world, and the flagship of Australian cosmopolitanism. The largest city in Australia is one of the top places to visit of the southern seas – and for language stays.
Journey with Eurocentres to the east coast of Australia and learn English literally on the other side of the world. Only a few cities offer the Australian attitude to life in such an attractive and modern environment as Sydney. Lying directly on the broad expanse of the Pacific Ocean, the city has become the stage for a magical maritime atmosphere and a matching sea of opportunities that you will encounter in Sydney.
The sights of Sydney
Speaking of the stage, one of the most famous stages in the world is in the Sydney Opera House, which is probably the most well-known symbol of the city. The wing and mussel-shaped building is in the centre of Port Jackson, Sydney’s natural harbour. The Royal Botanic Gardens link directly to the side where the main entrance is found. Visiting this tourist magnet is worth more than just capturing the architectural masterpiece on camera. All those drawn in by the water in the green coastal atmosphere find themselves in the heart of this surfer’s paradise. Bondi Beach is just a few kilometres away from the centre, which, together with the Opera House, is one of the most visited places in Sydney. Feel the power of the Pacific Ocean and the origins of Australian surfing culture.
Getting there: Fly to Sydney and learn English
Your language study abroad in Sydney gets off to a really easy start, as a high-flyer. The Kingsford Smith Airport is just nine kilometres south of Sydney and has its own airport line, which takes you into the heart of this thrilling global metropolis in just 15 to 20 minutes. From there, you can discover the city’s gems in a relaxed way – whether in Port Jackson from the ferry or within the city by train, which you can use to get to the many stations in Sydney’s urban area. Trains also run from Sydney Central Station to Brisbane and Melbourne, where you can discover fascinating places away from your language stay, meet new people, and gain many exciting and linguistic experiences. The language knowledge taught by Eurocentres forms the perfect basis for all of this.
Bridging the gap – it isn’t just the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge which connects the northern and southern parts of the city close to the Opera House; the Eurocentres Language School does it too. The school isn’t far from these two landmarks and connects language learning with entertainment, the traditional with the unusual, and each individual language student with the world. Students from all corners of the world come here and learn together on the many different English courses. The central location enables you to get to Darling Harbour quickly. The recreational area has many restaurants, shopping centres and cultural establishments, where you can put your new language knowledge into practice straight away. In line with this, every week the Eurocentres Language School offers an additional activity that gives you very different access to the English language: Job Club, Pronunciation Intensive, Coffee Shop Conversation, Listening through Music or TV Slang, all bring variation to your language learning and enrich your language stay.
Relaxed and varied language learning
On your language study abroad in Sydney you’ll find all sorts of opportunities in this city of many faces. That is also really important to us when learning English at the Eurocentres Language School. That is why various recognised language certificates are included in our range of courses. In addition to excellent language content, there is an appealing atmosphere, which is of great benefit to learning success. The IT equipment at the Sydney Language School is superbly set up with numerous computers including Wi-Fi access. The students have access to a private kitchen with microwaves and a fridge. After all, language success makes you hungry. The large common room with a TV and DVDs as well as the lounge invite a more informal type of exchange between teachers and the students, away from the lessons. Leave the country of rigid language theory and journey to the sea of sustainable language learning – the Eurocentres Language School in Sydney is the ideal bridge for this.

Student hall of residence: A unique language study abroad in Sydney
Both locations for our student halls of residence present themselves as an authentic sand bank, but they are in fact in the middle of Sydney’s finance and business quarter. At the same time, it also marks the city centre and is thus a gathering place for revellers and sightseeing fans. At the modern student hall of residence you will meet students from across the world and also find yourself squarely in the heart of the city, from where you will set off on discovery tours and daytrips together. So you can improve your English in a fun way whilst at the same time making new and valuable intercultural contacts. And Sydney, more than any other city, knows how to make friendships for life out of these contacts.

A typical day at Eurocentres Sydney
We are one big family: This is what Peter is experiencing during his language stay in Sydney. Which is why he has not been homesick for even one second! Or maybe it is because there are always so many interesting things happening. No, life is never boring in a city like Sydney. Sydney is lively, multicultural and has an exciting nightlife. The transport network is also exceptional, so that getting around is never a problem. The average journey between the accommodation and the school, however, is between 40 and 60 minutes. This time can be used to learn your school work or interact with the locals to improve your fluency – the time will fly.
Peter has chosen a studio apartment as his accommodation. For him, it is the ideal solution as he likes having time to himself. He finds the preparatory course for the IELTS exam quite challenging. The teachers know exactly how to push and support the students – to good effect: best results are obtained during the time available and the students get good exam scores. Peter considers the many sporting opportunities close to the school to be a highlight of his free time: there are swimming, tennis, basketball and volleyball facilities. What he particularly liked was his visit to Sydney Aquarium with its more than 650 highly spectacular underwater creatures.
