What our students said about Gold Coast

Rating: 5/5


The Gold Coast is gorgeous, modern. It is not a typical city, it is rather a beautifully located region: the ocean to the east, breathtaking national parks (Gondwana Rainforest) to the west and south, full of picturesque waterfalls and unusual endemic vegetation, and forests and picturesque coves to the north. A lot of places to visit, a lot of attractions. All this is practically within a 30 km radius: ocean, mountains, valleys, lakes, beautiful rivers and bays and a vibrant city right on the water. Gold Coast is very colorful, full of energy and life. You certainly can not get bored here. It is not an expensive city, although it may seem so. I personally am delighted.

Very good school. Amazing teachers abd great location: close to the park, by the water. Very well conducted lessons. Lots of discussions on important and current topics, lots of independent thinking (my level is intermediate). I recommend it to everyone, really. It was great! My learning didn't last long, but I improved my English very quickly. I think I'll go back there again to do the academic level :) I also want to thank Ms. Gosia Mazur, who very cleverly guided me and negotiated a lower price. Thank you, greetings and ... I think until next time!
