Develop your knowledge of the English language, gain confidence in your speaking, reading, writing and listening skills, and learn more about Australia.

Ideal for families of Temporary Residents, backpackers and working holiday-makers, this general English language course is designed to help you develop the English language communication skills you need for travel, study and work situations, as well as daily life and social activities.

In this course, you will develop your general English language and communication skills, practise your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, and learn about the English language through grammar, language usage, conversation and vocabulary.

You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in learning activities that include role-plays, small group discussions, local excursions and conversation to build your confidence in speaking English.

On successful completion of the General English Program, you will be able to communicate more confidently with a range of English language speakers, including native speakers and other EAL speakers, in a variety of situations. If you are interested in continuing your studies, you may also be able to gain direct access into TasTAFE courses and qualifications.
