English language courses
Our intensive English language courses will set you on the path to reaching the English language level you need to advance your studies.
Our English language courses have been developed to offer you comprehensive everyday and academic English language skills in an accelerated learning format.
Our teachers hold university-level qualifications in teaching English to non-native speakers. They also participate in regular professional development to ensure they are up to date with curriculum, technology, and the latest teaching strategies.
With an average class size of 15 you'll receive individualised support and attention and have your progress closely monitored through weekly tests, evaluation, and feedback. In 2022 our online ELICOS courses were recognised by the NEAS (National English Language Teaching Accreditation Scheme), with the NEAS tick recognising high quality education and training.
Our English language courses provide direct access pathways into our certificate and diploma courses at TAFE Queensland. Additionally, all course levels equate with the Common European Framework (CEF), ensuring your English language results are internationally recognised.
Whatever your career or study goal, one of our English language courses, will be sure to suit your needs.
