Course Information

The General English course is for students who want to improve their English but are not planning to study at university. The General English course teaches students about everyday English for a range of different real-life situations, including travelling, socialising, working, or just generally living in an English-speaking country. Classes in the General English course often include excursions and opportunities to practice English outside of the classroom. It’s also a great way to learn more about Australian culture and society. Each level normally takes 10 weeks to complete but can, depending on students’ grades, be completed in 5 weeks. Completion is based on exit exams and assignments at the end of the level.
