Daniel Ortiz
Student Stories

"The teachers at ILSC see you as someone who wants to learn a new language to grow professionally and personally.  They are always there to support you, to give you tips and advice. My dream was to learn English and I made it. Honest feedback helped me to work on the areas that I needed to improve."

Student Stories

"Brisbane has been so amazing, I wish I could have studied longer. There was always so much to do. In one week I went to the cinema, a chocolate tour and to Movie World! The city is filled with fun. Even when my friends and I would just hang around outside it was exciting. My experience in Brisbane was amazing, unique and always interesting."

Nicolai Farfan, Colombia

Student Stories

"The best part of Melbourne is having the chance to meet people from all around the world, exchanging great experiences and getting to know Australian culture. Melbourne is a mix between good quality of life, amazing weather, lovely people and great opportunities to work. If someone has the opportunity to come and live this adventure, I would not think twice about recommending the experience."

Juan Manuel Puerres, Colombia
Andrea Shuh
Student Stories

"ILSC New Delhi has a great leaning environment. I came here to improve my English. I used to struggle to find words while talking in a group and was shy to speak incorrectly, especially the pronunciation. I never expected that I’ll get individual attention, unlike at the previous school. My teacher is also a nice and lovely person. The staff here is also very kind and helpful. The area around the school is also safe."

Andrea Shuh, Germany
Deisy Alzate
Student Stories

"I decided to study with ILSC school because their location is really convenient for us as international students. I remember that when I came to Brisbane, my English was zero. And now I can communicate, I can express what I feel and understand what people want to tell me."
