Course Description:

The General English courses are intended to provide international students with the English language foundation and skills they need to function in social contexts in Australian society and to undertake further vocational courses. The programs focus on language used in everyday situations and provide a solid foundation in grammar, and the four main skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

The courses integrate the modes of language – that is, listening, speaking, reading and writing to improve students’ understanding of the forms, features, and functions of language. Students will enhance their skills in analysing, responding to and composing a range of texts characteristic of those they will encounter in their social language interaction in Australia. The courses will also assist students in their development and understanding of various strategies and styles of learning.


Structure and Articulation with Other Courses:

The General English courses range over four levels: Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Upper Intermediate. All students will be assessed and placed into their appropriate level.

Each level of the General English course is studied over a 10-week semester. Lessons are from Monday to Thursday of 20 hours face-to-face classes.



Successful completion of the General English course at Upper-Intermediate level enables entry into the IELTS Preparation course or the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Upper-Intermediate course.



The General English course has assessment tasks built into the course that are on-going and cumulative during the program. The exams will be based on the content of the course and will test the four skills of: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.


Entry Requirements:

Students do not need any special requirement to enter the General English course. However, students will be assessed and placed in their appropriate class before commencement. Students applying from overseas can do our special placement test with their agent so that we can organize the appropriate class.
