Australian International College of Language (AICOL), Gold Coast:
Study English in Australia this summer and enjoy an unforgettable learning experience! Established in 1993, Australian International College of Language (AICOL) provides quality English language courses on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland. We teach English to adults, teenagers and children from around the world. Our English courses are available in summer and all year round (including a winter camp). Overlooking the Broadwater Parklands to Seaworld, our English school is ideally located for students who wish to study English and enjoy our Australian lifestyle.
Benefits of Summer English Courses:
Summer is an especially good time for many of our adult students, as families can choose to bring their children with them in their school holidays. Their children can then be placed in our young learner courses whilst their parents enjoy our adult classes. Courses can be as short as 1 week.
For those students seeking to combine some sightseeing and other activities with their English study, we offer part-time General English courses, which consist of 3 hours each morning. Full-time English classes can finish at 2:30, leaving enough time for students to have ample study, and yet find time to enjoy the activities on the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast offers a wide range of after school activities for all interests, and we can assist students to book their own special activities, whether they be scuba diving, private golf lessons, or surfing lessons,to name a few. Our English courses are all accredited, and offer more academically-minded students the opportunity to study for tests such as IELTS or TOEIC whilst they are enjoying the Gold Coast.
During summer, we welcome international students from around the world, studying from 1 week up to 6 weeks and more. There are great opportunities to meet people from other countries and to form life-long friendships.

"We are home now, but our hearts still seemed to have stayed in Australia. When we looked at the photos we took there, we missed a good time we had with you and good days we had in Brisbane and Gold Coast."

"Thank you for teaching me for 5 weeks. Your classes were so fun, and in fact I was always looking forward to joining in your classes. I've learned a lot from your teaching such as student-center classes and giving students a lot of opportunities to speak English. I also thought that a schedule in your classes was so nice too. Your classes improve every skill, not only listening, speaking, reading, writing but also thlnking about some issues deeply. I want to be a teacher like you...I had a great time during my stay in Australia."

Gold Coast - A Beautiful & Lively City:
The Gold Coast is Australia’s 6th biggest city, and offers a year-round lifestyle which very few places can match. As a training ground for top athletes, such as surfers, cyclists, swimmers, and triathletes, the Gold Coast is world famous.
Behind the Gold Coast in the hinterland, there is the Lamington National Park, a world heritage area with ancient plants from the time of Gondwana land. There is in fact more biodiversity on the Gold Coast than in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. For bird watchers it is indeed a paradise.
Convenient College Location:
AICOL is located in Southport, just 5 minutes’ walk from the Australia Fair Shopping centre, and directly opposite the Broadwater Parklands, site of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The modern, architecturally designed, art deco college building is located in the centre of the city on the south side near downtown shops and Chinatown. The 6-storey building has a beautifully designed interior and exterior.
