HOMESTAY:
Live as part of an English-speaking household while at English language school in Sydney. Depending on the type of accommodation you book, you’ll have your own bedroom, or share a room with another Embassy English language school student. You will eat breakfast and, with the half-board booking, also evening meals with your hosts. It's a great chance to meet Sydney residents and share their way of life. Living with English-speakers also means that you will never stop learning and improving your fluency.
