Brisbane is the ideal place in Australia to study the General English course to improve your awareness in speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in a caring environment.

Our lessons are based on the innovative “HITS” system. This means that, at the end of each lesson, students achieve something very specific and practical. These classes also involve students using English in the real world by engaging in real tasks and activities outside of the classroom.


Our GE classes at QAT employ a unique approach called HITS to fully engage our students.


All tasks use the various macro skills and are interesting and meaningful.
