However lack of information, I couldnt find any real student comments about these english schools. Is there anybody or anybody's friends that have any experience about these schools?

Hi Gabito,
Unless the various Universities/Colleges have provision for student feedback you will find it hard to get relevant feedback.
I think you will find most of them have a fairly formal study concept consistent with studying any subject and that may not be as conducive to improving english as less formal classes that could have more interaction.
I remember from a few weeks in Switzerland once where I studied German, the class was also a mix of nationalities and because all teaching was in German for a person like myself with very limited spoken/listening german ability it was of limited value.
I have given some ideas on improving english to Luca @ http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...y-project.html and you may find something there helpful.
Homestay is also one way of being immersed with a family who will hopefully be available to converse with you in english but even staying in a youth hostel and finding some english speaking buddies is another way.
Are you coming on a visa that allows work for working with people is probably the best way to quickly adjust to english as it is spoken, and instead of or as well as a homestay you may want to consider WWOOF Australia Official Website if you are not going to be on a visa for working.

I made a few extra bucks by hosting students under homestay program a few years ago. The program is good for short time visitors as well as for students who need to have a place to start somewhere. In a long terms it is very expensive and you would be looking towards shared accommodation.
