What students say

"My agent recommended the South Australian College of English to me. I am enjoying my course very much. I have tried similar courses before, this one is completely different and better.

The highlight of the course are the teachers. I feel comfortable with them, they are really friendly and always are prepared to help you.

I would recommend the course to others because I have been trying different methods to learn English for years, and this one is my favourite because it's entertaining and you can learn fast."

Harold Huamanchumo

"I chose to study at the South Australian College of English because the location (middle of the city) and the variety of nationalities were attractive for me.

I am enjoying my course. The motivation of students for studying are so high and they are good at English, so I am been giving good stimulations from them.

I live in share house and it's cosy for me, but I recommend to experience homestay because it's the best way to improve speaking skills and to know Australian cultures."

Yukiko Hombo

"My agent recommended the South Australian College of English because the school isn't too big and they have small classes. It's a great and amazing experience being to Adelaide studying English. My highlight, so far, has been improving my English skill in such a short time.

Students from all over the world have been studying here. I can learn so much about foreign cultures and traditions and I've made many friends coming from different countries. Our school also has a wide and various excursion program to choose for our spare time and weekends.

All the school staff is very kind, cheerful and helpful. We are such a big family. I would every time recommend to my friends study at the South Australian College of English."
