Lyceum is proud to be very special in that we offer a LOTE programme (Languages Other than English) and an Engish programme (English as a Second Language). We have around 100 students who come from all over the world to study English. Of these, currently about 38% are Europeans (mainly Italian, French and Spanish), 30% students are from Asia (mainly Korea, Japan and Indonesia), and around 32% are from South America which creates a great mix of nationalities.
Our English students attend our Queen St centre in the CBD 8.30am to 12.45pm, Monday to Friday. Please visit our English website for more details: www.lyceumenglish.com.
We usually have up to 500 Australians enrolled at Lyceum to study LOTE including Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, German and Mandarin Chinese. Students attend the Queen St centre in the evenings.
Our English and LOTE students benefit in many ways from meeting each other. They enjoy extra language practice through conversation activities that we offer, and have fun with social outings. We hope that they will form friendships, continue to see each other and practise their language skills. Many benefits flow on such as house sharing, job opportunities and of course, we hope, precious life-long friendships.
