What our students said about Melbourne


Rating: 5/5

Perhaps because there are many international students in a multi-ethnic country, even if I couldn't speak English, I couldn't take a cold attitude, and everyone treated me kindly. The cityscape was beautiful and I enjoyed riding the tram in the city center for free. I thought that the environment for learning a language was a very good place.


Rating: 1/5

As the city has such diversity, the people are friendly and pleasant, and I never once felt any kind of discrimination. The food culture is also diverse, and I could find a wide variety of ingredients to enjoy.

Einstein College of Australia

They were wonderful teachers. He gave me a very enjoyable class. I was glad that the staff and teachers were kind enough to accept the students for only one week.
The majority of them are Burmese, and they seem to be interested in Japan and talked to me a lot. I met a Japanese person only once during the lunch break, but he just spoke Japanese. It was good because there was nothing else.
