Read below to find out what our past students and graduates are saying about our vocational school and the vocational education and training courses we have on offer.

“ Hi, I’m Lydia Tan Ying from Malaysia.

I’m studying Intermediate English at SERO Institute, starting in November 2018.

I definitely recommend this school for General English because the school gives us the best equipment, the kitchen has two ovens, water dispenser and refrigerator. I have met a lot of kind and fun teachers in this school, they are using the fun action to explain everything to me. Sometimes they will pick us out to do outdoor activities and learn from the moment.

I expect my English will become much more fluent when I graduate, and I hope the school has more students in the future. ”

“ Studying at SERO Institute Perth Campus was a great experience. All the staff are very kind and helpful; and the trainers are highly qualified and supportive.

I could achieve my goals with success because of that. I just wanna thank SERO Institute for everything. ”

“ My name is Julian, I’m from Bogota Colombia.

I’m in an English course, and in April I’m going to study Commercial Cookery and Hospitality Management. I have been studying for 2 months.

I like the flexible schedule because I can do many other things, also I like that the course allows me to practice my speaking. I like the program a lot, maybe I would like more organised about the books but in general, it’s really good. ”

“ My name is Shasha from Bangkok in Thailand.

I studied General English course at SERO INSTITUTE for 1 year and I never study English before I left Thailand but I feel that I am continually improving my speaking, reading, writing and I am lucky to have had great teachers like Valery and Daniel.

They are kind, calm and patient and I have learnt many English skills from them.

It was a great experience for me to study at SERO Institute!!

Thank you”

I like to play cricket on my free time and listen to rap music. ”

“ Hi, I’m Tee from Thailand.

I’m studying the Commercial Cookery course at SERO Institute North Quay campus. The thing that I really love here is the practice place which is the kitchen in Sofitel Brisbane Centre. It’s very convenient and fulfilled with the professional environment, and every tool in the kitchen is usable at work.

I’m also working at Bruno Café during my studies. I can bring the knowledge from what I learn and practice at school to adapt when I’m working there. It’s very useful for my career path. ”

“ My name is Zito Ghristelle, I’m French.

I’m studying upper intermediate level English from 17 Dec 2018 until 6 of March 2019.

I started 4 weeks ago, I like my class in general, the students and teacher. We are doing grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening and some writing things.

I expected it’s good because we mix everything, so it’s formal English but we learn Australian slang too. It’s a good compromise between conscientious and funny studying. ”
