• Welcome

    As owners of the Sydney English Academy (SEA) we would like to welcome you to the Australian English school that is different.

    Conveniently located just metres from Manly Beach and right in the town centre, the SEA is a boutique English school where you will quickly feel at home and always receive the individual attention you deserve.

    By keeping our classes small (average 12, max 15 students per class), we are able to offer a high level of personalised English tuition and English lessons, allowing you to learn English in Australia quickly and easily.

    We look forward to meeting each one of you individually,sharing with you our extensive knowledge of Australia, and making sure that you have the best possible experience of learning English in Australia.
