Methodology and Materials:

Image of English College in Sydney, AustraliaEnglish is taught using the communicative approach, where students are encouraged to be active participants in the classroom. The syllabus is based on the very latest ESL materials and text books, with the use of supplementary materials gathered from a wide range of sources including newspapers, magazines, films, radio and the internet. Our teachers adapt many of these authentic materials to suit the level and characteristics of each particular class.

Task-based learning also features in the programme, which means learners are actively involved in improving their English skills whilst working cooperatively with other students to acquire new knowledge in their areas of interest.

All students have 2 morning classes for the main syllabus, and an afternoon class where the four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening are developed.

Teachers:

Metro teachers have a broad range of teaching experience, and have access to the latest educational resources and facilities. We believe in providing our teachers with the best training available and maintain an ongoing regular professional development programme.

Accommodation :

Sydney offers many comfortable and relatively cheap types of accommodation. Younger students usually live with a homestay family, and older students often live in share accommodation or a small studio apartment. Sydney boasts many large old victorian terraces which have a garden, as well as modern houses with apartments.

Homestay:
A homestay is where international students stay with a local family during the course of their studies. This is an excellent opportunity to improve English skills if required, get to see life in an Australian family and learn more about the Australian way of life and culture.

Students will be welcomed as a member of the family and do things the whole family does, often including your own washing and cleaning! You can choose to have all your meals with the family or opt to buy your own food, in which the price would be different.

Share Accommodation:
Probably the most popular option for students is to rent a house or room in a house. This offers you freedom to come and go as you please, cook your own meals and live as you want to without having to abide by anybody else's rules. One of the best ways to save money is to rent a house with other friends who are also students or backpackers, which is called a share house. You can then share the bills and cleaning costs with your house-mates and if necessary put money together to buy furniture.

There are many ways of finding share accommodation, from national newspapers to noticeboards in backpackers and international colleges around Australia. You can rent houses, apartments or townhouses and rooms from a real estate agent or private owners, many of whom advertise in the national newspapers.
