Student Activities

Explore the Gold Coast while making new friends, having fun and speaking English.

The Gold Coast landscape is famous for its beautiful beaches, sub-tropical rainforests, waterfalls, fresh water rivers, mountains, and the urban city is known for it's exciting nightlife, theme parks and endless choice of eateries. Here at The Language Academy, we organise an activity every week for students to encourage a healthy social life and immersion into the Australian way of life.

On campus activities - The Language Academy

Campus hangouts

Food, conversation, and great company.

Our campus is known for being a multicultural hub because of the eight different languages we teach.

Students and teachers often bring in national dishes to share, and we always love to celebrate a date of cultural importance such as Chinese New Year and Brazil’s Carnival.

This activity is free of charge, unless you would like to bring a dish to share.
