Here you will find everything you need to know about accommodation, work, schools, technology, English resources… Everything you need to live and study in Sydney, written in clear, simple English – you can practice your English as you learn about Sydney.

     Some features that you might like to explore on the blog are:

  • Translate – if your English is not so good, choose a flag above to translate the site.
  • English Resources – links to GOOD English resources online to help with your study.
  • Ask a Question – if you have any questions you want answered, pleases leave a message. Every week 1 question will be answered.
  • Entertainment – a list of things to do in Sydney (bands, galleries, concerts etc.), mostly FREE.

    Assuming this is genuine — and I mean no disrespect, Sister, but we all know much on the internet is not — I suggest you try something like Facebook. Put up a profile and you may find some willing English conversationalists. Also, look into Dave’s ESL Cafe.

    Hi, Manseur Mohamed Amine. By all means use anything offered on this site, and others linked from it. But I am unable to give you direct help.

    Good luck.
