  • Hobart

Hobart is a small, safe city with a population of 200.000 people with a low cost of living. Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania, the island state of Australia. It is a perfect destination for students who want to enjoy an authentic Australian city with access to World Heritage listed National Parks, beautiful wild beaches and spectacular alpine mountain areas. There are not too many foreign students.

Seriously, Tasmania is one of The Language House’s favourite destinations. Our director Garry Littman worked as a fisherman in Tasmania many years ago. It does get a bit cold and wet in winter. It is here that you find the Tasmanian Devil . Be careful. The male devil is as aggressive as his cartoon character. Kangaroos and wallabies are everywhere in Tasmania.

Something to think about

SACE schools offer students the possibility to study in two or three different destinations. You can combine the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne with the wild forests of Tasmania, the festivals of Adelaide and sailing and the Great Barrier Reef in the tropical Whitsundays (Airlie Beach)—It’s all possible. Call The Language House and we will explain how it works.
