Summer and Winter Camps on the Gold Coast:

• As we also offer registered courses for individual young students, this enables our programs to have meaningful learning content. All summer camp English classes are delivered by qualified teachers.

• Our summer and winter camps offer a perfect environment for students to learn English, and at the same time participate in a wide range of sporting and other activities.

• We offer many different types of program, which vary in length from just a week up to 4 or 6 weeks.

• The activities also vary according to the likes and dislikes of each country. For example, our Russian students love taking surfing lessons in the beautiful Pacific Ocean, whereas our Japanese students love visiting our farmstay to ride horses and be in touch with nature.

• Our most popular programs offer English classes each morning, and activities each afternoon, with a full day activity on the weekends. 

• More academic programs, which tend to be favoured by mainland Chinese groups, focus on full-time English during the week, followed by full day theme park visits on the weekends.

Other English Courses for Children & Teenagers:

• English for High School Preparation  
• General English (from 14 years of age)
• Farmstay Program  

Activities can include integration with local primary or secondary schools, and can if requested focus intensively on academic studies or preferred sports (such as golf, tennis, or swimming tuition).


Year-Round English Study Tours:
• We also provide year-round study tour programs, from 1 to 4 weeks. The Gold Coast, with its year-round good climate, provides the perfect setting for study tours.

• All of our teachers are fully qualified ESL teachers, and our English courses are structured and accredited.

• AICOL is now also a recognized school by Bildungsurlaub in Germany for approved educational travel.

Parents and Children:

• Accompany their children
• Stay together in the same homestay family
Study together at AICOL, with the parent in the General English class and the child in the Young Learner class
• Participate in activities together

Both the General English course and the Young Learner course are fully accredited, and may be undertaken on either a tourist visa (for short term courses) or a student visa (for courses longer than 3 months).

For families thinking of longer term study for their children, AICOL will also arrange for parents and children to visit local primary schools or high schools. AICOL will also provide a free guardianship for younger students who stay with an AICOL homestay family.


Student Testimonial:

"Hi Garth,
I have finished three weeks of English study in your school. My experience has been very good. My daughters have been four weeks and will be for another week.

I studied English in six different countries and I must say that your school is the best I've ever been. I am a high school teacher in my country and I value your work.

My daughters have learned a lot. The teachers are very good. Laura is in the class of Brendan. A great teacher. Laura has managed to speak English and work hard every day.

Jamice professor Paula is a very energetic person and a great professional. And John my teacher always has a kind word for each of their students and a great knowledge of the different cultures of their students.

Thank you very much to all. I have to thank you also that in recent weeks we find a new apartment where we have been very good."

Homestay Testimonial: 
"No I mean it Garth, I  have been with a lot of different agents but AICOL is really the best, not the best pay, but the best organised, and that is what I like. It is not always about money, but I  love how it is run.

The children are always so lovely from AICOL - so far I had Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Japanese. I just love what you do for these children.

They are so happy to come to Australia what a great experience for them they will never forget that (my last two were 9 and ten, so brave and polite). They cried when they left and so did I... Keep up the good work!"

-  Maryke Beranjia, Homestay provider
