Browns Brisbane

Browns is one of Australia’s most prestigious language schools, elected by “Language Travel Magazine” as the best English language school in the southern hemisphere. The school is well known for its diverse student body who come to Brisbane from all over the world. Students will not only be able to learn English, but also have the opportunity to meet and share their experience with other students from different cultures. Browns offers a large variety of courses, learning styles and activities. Students are also able to work as an “Au Pair” with an Australian family during their stay.

The school itself is located in the center of the bustling city of Brisbane, in two buildings located approximately ten minutes walking from each other. The main building and office are located on Adelaide Street, just meters from the King George Square bus station. This school building has many facilities including a student lounge and a balcony where students can share their lunch with their classmates. The majority of classes are held here. The second building, located on Ann St is used for junior courses at the school. The ample facilities at both campuses are well equipped for students needs, and the school has a dedicated activities officer to provide information on cultural events and travel in Brisbane and Australia. The modern classrooms are all fully equipped with the latest technology and free WIFI is available throughout the building to ensure students can maximize their learning experience.

All Browns teachers are university educated and certified with TESOL IV and have a minimum of two years experience as an English as a foreign language teacher.
