Travel and Learn Accommodation

With a Travel and Learn Study Tour, you and your group choose where you would like to stay. There are many choices from luxury hotels to camping under the stars.

Perhaps you would like to study English in a major city, or a large regional town? There, you will find all kinds of accommodation close to your classroom. These include busy, city-centre youth hostels (for all ages) where you meet friendly people from all over the world. Or, you might like a hotel near bargain shopping and exciting nightlife.

accomondation

On your bus tour you can vary where you stay, if you like, from destination to destination. One night you could camp on the beach under the stars, and another, stay in a comfortable caravan park with kangaroos and beautiful birds. Or, perhaps a five-star hotel or resort with a swimming pool and spa appeals to you.  Remember, you decide where to go and for how many days!

Travel and Learn English and Australian Culture Classes

English on the road is a combination of fun and formal content. All levels of students are provided for, with the main focus to encourage you and your group to listen, speak, read and write in a relaxed and interesting environment.

You will enjoy communicating in English through a variety of different tasks and games. In one class you might talk about the city you are staying in and how people live – what are the main industries? What sports or culture do they like? Where do they like to relax? In another class, you could talk about Australian animals, the environment and the different types of trees and landscape, followed by a discussion.

On the 5-star coaches, your Mobile Classes where the learning comes alive with stimulating quizzes, trivia games, information sheets and tour guide presentations. Who can see the first kangaroo? What do we call those trees? Will you win a prize?

The aim, after all, is to improve your fluency and confidence in English while enjoying a special travel and cultural experience.

The Great Outdoors

Australia is a gigantic continent and its scenery and seasons are quite distinct in different areas, so where will you go? Do you prefer the bush with its beautiful eucalyptus trees or perhaps a tropical jungle or a beautiful beach?  Would you like to learn to ski or just watch the snowflakes fall on the mountain gum trees while sipping from a hot drink? You could watch the bucking broncos at an all-Australian rodeo or take a trip to world-famous natural wonders like the Great Ocean Road, the Blue Mountains or the Great Barrier Reef.

Once there, you can choose to bushwalk, hike, go fishing, take a scenic tourist train, go scuba-diving or… just relax.
