As the capital of the Australian state of New South Wales and the largest city in the country by population, located on the southeastern coast of the country, Sydney is divided into 38 local government areas and over 650 suburbs. It is situated in a coastal basin west of the Pacific Ocean, east of the Blue Mountains, north of the Woronora Plateau, and south of the Hawkesbury River, offering diverse landscapes with exotic flora and fauna in the surroundings for an exciting language stay in Australia. The region enjoys a subtropical climate with mild winters and hot and humid summers, along with approximately 300 days of sunshine per year!

History & Culture

Originally inhabited by 4,000 to 8,000 Aboriginal people, the region that now houses Sydney was discovered by the British navigator James Cook, who established a penal colony there in 1770 under the name of Port Jackson. The first free settlers arrived between 1800 and 1850, and its growth continued exponentially after the discovery of gold deposits in the neighboring state of Victoria. Today, Sydney remains the largest economic and commercial center in Australia and tourism plays a significant role, thanks to its rich culture, hosting numerous festivals (such as the Big Day Out, Tropfest, Sydney Festival, etc.), and its pleasant environment.

Things to Do / Places to See

Between English classes in Sydney, indulge in the beautiful beaches of Bondi Beach and take the opportunity to try your hand at surfing.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, where Australian flora blends with plant species from around the world, offers an ideal setting for walks and picnics. Don't miss a stroll along Darling Harbour's docks, a relaxing area with parks, museums, restaurants, and bars, all just steps away from the Sydney Aquarium.
