Melbourne, study on the coast in an urban city in Florida
Looking for a language course in the United States? Melbourne is a perfect destination to experience culture, palm trees and white sand. Located in Florida, Melbourne is a showcase of excellence in the United States, with its landscape often used as the background to many famous American films. Melbourne offers all the attractions of Florida, in a warm and welcoming city.
Founded in 1867, Melbourne was named in honor of its founder, Cornthwaite John Hector, who had lived in the Australian city of the same name. You might be surprised to discover that this city, contrary to what one might think, is not a tourist destination, but a center of industry, specializing in technology, which attracts engineers and researchers.
A language course full of relaxation and discovery
During your English course, you can take advantage of the finest beaches, walk along the Indian River Lagoon, and watch the sun set.
You should also experience the culture of the city, with museums such as the Liberty Bell Memorial and the Church of the Holy Trinity Episcopal both providing an opportunity to really get to know the city. Thrill seekers can enjoy a day at Disney World while history lovers will find their happiness in Cape Canaveral, the historic center of the space race.
