We spoke to Paljor from marketing about the school’s main points.

---Paljor, can you tell us why you would recommend this school?

Paljor:Our excellent teachers set us apart from the rest. They are highly qualified with university degrees and TESOL certification, with much experience behind them. With small-scale classes are capped at 15 students, they are strongly aware of each student and their individual goals and make sure to provide the right support for all.

---Please give a message to all those out there thinking about studying in Sydney!

Paljor:Sydney is the best place to live and study. The city is safe and has a convenient public transport system. It’s easy to get around and I imagine you’ll be able to live quite comfortably here. Sydney is the biggest city in Australia and also an international one. You’ll never get bored here and find something different to do every day with the great social entertainment scene. The nightlife thrives with concerts, movies, theatre, restaurants and more. The city offers you a myriad of opportunities with its warm climate. There are many outdoor activities to experience, including scuba diving, whale watching and bushwalking close to the city. Out in the suburbs beaches, rainforests and the wondrous Blue Mountains are a short drive away. You can book day trips to popular tourist destinations right at our own travel desk on campus. Australia is a very friendly country whose people always welcome visitors from overseas warmly. You’ll surely be surprised at how friendly people are in stores and restaurants here. Australians love to talk, making this the perfect place to improve your English skills. Should you choose to come to Australia we are sure you’ll have the time of your life. We look forward to meeting every single person considering coming to this brilliant country of Australia when you get here!

The campus has plenty of lounge areas.

I doubt there are many language schools with their very own travel desks on campus around here. This particular campus is full of laughter and always has some kind of activity going on. By checking out the school myself I was able to see what a great mix of nationalities there is among the students. There is no doubt that with such diversity there is a great environment for speaking English naturally, partly due to the school English Only policy. This is an amazing school who not only cares for its own students, but also offered this reporter the same hospitality when visiting to collect data for this article.

The fact that there is a support system in place for students to find employment makes this school your biggest ally. Knowing how to look for and secure a job will be your key to living in Australia. English Language Company has a cheerful atmosphere for students to learn, laugh and play all the while improving their English skills!
