"The experience was funny but the school should be more structured."

Amedeo Campagna, student from Italy

The experience was pleasant and enjoyable even though the structure and educational equipment can definitely be improved.

The staff and the teachers were kind but not always able to motivate the students; the classes are not always homogeneous and stimulating.

"I loved it"

Olivia Erika Brandin, student from Sweden

I liked it. Everyone was really nice and they welcomed me when I arrived. The teachers are good at teaching and they are funny, it’s a good combination.

I liked some activities cause some of them were going to the museum and that’s kinda boring.

The school are located in a good place. It is really easy to get there.

"Valuable experience"

Luka Kovač, student from Slovenia

I had a great time at LSI Brisbane. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. The part I enjoyed the most was absolutely the ability to meet people from all over the world. Throughout conversation we've had I unconsciously improved my English as well. Classes were always interesting, teacher had an amazing sense for humour. The only thing I'd missed were some additional challenges for higher-level students. Sometimes I felt that the lessons were too easy for me.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time at LSI Brisbane.

School located in city and there is good public transport.
Teachers and Staffs in school are very accommodating and they more likes your friends. When you in the class you will not feel boring and want to sleep because it is very interesting! And the teachers in here are have enough patience and passion, they don’t hesitate to give you the answer or help.


Homestay family is very kind and the house is very clean and tidy.

"A good school: teachers are nice and well prepared. There is also the possibility to meet a lot of people"

Matteo Gamberoni, student from Italy

Well a decided to started an English course because I wanted a easy way to enter in the "Australian world". Defiantly it was. Teachers are helpful and it seems that they like their job. In fact, they were always smiling and ready to give you an hand. The morning classes sometimes could be a little boring but I think that is a universal thing: I mean every school sometimes is boring. The classes are well structured and you can find easily your English level. I had really enjoyed my class because people were extremely friendly and we use to talk a lot.
The morning classes were pretty funny because they teach English vocabulary with games or making speech about interesting topic.
The school is easy to find.
I didn't like the activities they proposed.

"The right place to practice and improve your english communication skills"

cynthea cynthea, student from Indonesia

The staff so helpful, kind and supported everything that they can do for us, and the teachers show their eagerness to teach us the best that they can give to improve our English, even thought some teacher is not. But most of all, the teachers are very nice and great. They were very helpful while I was studying there. It's a conducive situation for us to learn and communicate in proper English.

"School very good, my experience can be better"

francesco, student from Italy

My feedback is really positive on the school, even if my personal experience was not so good. I believe the school is very good, in terms of teachers, organization, and so on. The main issue is only related to my personal feeling, actually the main part of students are very young and they typical attend school for longer period than me. Due to this I didn't feel myself integrated into school, even if it is very good. Thanks, Francesco

"It was different"

Maria Carolina Perez Rosales, student from United Arab Emirates

The school was good, and the teachers and general class as well, but to be honest it should have more and better conversations class (more dynamic, and more hours) and extra activities. Everything about locations and facilities was very good. On the other hand the housing was great! Perfect! I was with a very special and lovely family in Brisbane.

"Good and useful experience"

Mario Patti, student from Italy

As expected we are no more than 10-12 persons per each class, it guarantees a direct relationship with the excelent teachers! Some of them have an australian accent but we are in Australia so I can't complain for this! At the moment I'm attending a Cambridge Advanced Exam course preparation and I think that's very useful to improve my english because there is the pressure of the exam.
There are a lot of activities offered by the school but the prices are the same or higher than the external agency!
In relation to my housing my host-family is very kind and friendly but unfortunately the house is far from the school. Every morning I need at least 45 minutes by bus (sometimes 1h) to arrive at school. I got upset for this but on the other hand I like the family so I don't want to change!

Ask a question

"The student is 15 years old. He will turn 16 in August. Could you still accept him?"

Katrin katrin, student from Germany
Aline Naves, Language Studies International school representative (Registrar/Accommodation)

The minimum age we can accept a student is 16, therefore, he wouldn’t be able to enrol with us at that stage.

Was this helpful? Yes

"If the student feels she needs to learn English longer than 3 months, can she then extend her stay and visa? Can she apply for student visa for 3 months?"

Aline Naves, Language Studies International school representative (Registrar/Accommodation)

Minimum study required to apply for a student visa is 3 months, so yes she can apply. If she wishes to study longer she can renew her student visa.

Was this helpful? Yes

"The student is agora and clautrophobic. Therefore she cannot use public transportation too much. Do you have homestays located really near the school"

Agnieszka Herbut, Cass Training International College school representative

We don’t have any Homestay located in the City location so the student wouldn’t have to take public transport.
We can request to our provider for the closest location as possible, but unfortunately there is no guarantee it will be available for the dates you have requested.

"The student is agora and clautrophobic. Therefore she cannot use public transportation too much. Do you have homestays located really near the school?"

"1. Is LSI a TOEFL testing center? 2. If so, can any student take the TOEFL test there? Or is it only for students that are enrolled in LSI's TOEFL preparation course?"

Dyan Test, student from USA

LSI Brisbane is a TOEFL testing centre. Any student can take the exam. We administer the test but we do not organise or book it. Students must book online through ibt TOEFL. We have no control over that part.
