Why choose our Cairns English school?

Come to our English school in Cairns, a destination where you can experience tropical weather all year round. Few places rival the stunning scenery of both lush rainforests and sparkling coral reefs. Cairns is a modern, sophisticated city with beautiful parks and a lagoon area where you can relax and swim.

Our school in Cairns allows students to experience the best climate Australia has to offer, with its beaches, long coastline and tropical sea. All of this serves as the perfect backdrop to Cairns’ international markets, as well as our school’s wide selection of activities and adventure sports.

Please note that in Cairns we do not offer any beginners classes and that the Intensive English course here will start at elementary level.
