General English

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. The General English program is for students who want to improve their language proficiency for personal growth, better professional opportunities, travel and social interaction. Students are challenged to develop both fluency and accuracy as well as cross-cultural communication skills in the General English program./p>

Our General English 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.
