Browns Gold Coast

Browns at the Gold Coast not only has a strong reputation for delivering high quality courses, but also has a unique location and opportunities to make the most of the famous Australian beaches and sunshine. Elected by “Language Travel Magazine” as the best English language school in the southern hemisphere, Browns offers a unique opportunity to share lessons and experiences with students from a diverse number of countries and backgrounds.

Browns at the Gold Coast offers not only an excellent academic curriculum with well-experienced teachers but also the opportunity to take advantage of the unique beachside location and participate in a variety of exciting water sports such as surfing. Additionally, students can undertake their language courses whilst working as an “Au Pair” in an Australian family.

The Gold Coast campus is well located in a new modern building between the suburbs of Southport and Surfers Paradise. The modern classrooms have wide windows to let in the sunshine. From the common areas students can watch boats and yachts cruising by on the adjacent Broadwater inlet.  

The team at Browns will be more than happy to help students plan activities and explore the Gold Coast and its surroundings. The school is well equipped for student needs, including having the latest technology and free WIFI throughout the building for students to make the most of 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.
