Still not convinced? Take a look at what some of our students have to say about their Lonsdale experience.

My first impressions about Lonsdale Institute has been right. Lonsdale has a nice and welcoming atmosphere like in a family. The atmosphere is quite relaxed and the teachers are very helpful, friendly and humorous. Every Friday after school there are some excursions. Graffiti-Tour, Bubble Soccer, visit museums and exhibitions. An excellent way to have fun and speak altogether outside the school. The students are from all over the world, so it’s necessary to speak English only; a good side effect to improve the language. As well I really like the location of the school in the heart of Sydney.

When I came into Lonsdale i could only speak a little English. I’m very shy, so I felt scared of speaking to someone in English. I didn’t have confidence so when someone talked to me my mind went blank. I’ve just finished 11weeks of studying with Lonsdale and I feel I’m improving and can talk, go out, have lunch and dinner, drink and take trips with my friends. So I like this school, my teachers, my classmates, and friends.

Satsuki (Japan)

“Before Starting I could speak English but not very fluently and I made a lot of grammatical mistakes. After 3 months at Lonsdale I feel confident.I have found the teachers very generous and the timetables and schedules flexible. I have really enjoyed events like sharing lunches with international food and the extra classes such as pronunciation and job club.”

Thyda Pen (France)

“Lonsdale is not just a school, it is a place to grow up to find more adventurous people like you, to create memories that you will never forget, if you want to feel part of a big family, this is the place for you. Every week new people arrive, new stories begin, giving you new reasons to love this experience.”

Alex (Venezuela)

“I strongly recommend Lonsdale Institute if someone wants to learn about how to deal with IELTS exam, take a course and just have fun with lovely teachers and classmates. Even though I have only studied for 2 months in the class, my English has improved a lot.”
