English Language Program


Academic English Preparation (AEP)


Teaching all the essential skills

Being able to speak English fluently is essential for study as well as being successful in today's global community.

The Academic English Preparation program, delivered in 12 week terms, will ensure you use English confidently and correctly.

Throughout your studies you will be an active language learner.  Everyone you meet will be using English: friends, teachers, families and local people.

Living and studying in an English-speaking country is without a doubt the best way to improve your skills.


What will I study?

AEP focuses on:

  • Language studies
  • Formal writing styles
  • Note taking
  • Assignment writing
  • Intensive listening
  • Reading

When you finish, you will have developed research, reading and general English language skills which you'll need to study our High School or Foundation programs.

Upon completion of AEP, you do not need to take an IELTS test before you begin the High School or Foundation programs.


Qualified staff who care

The teaching staff are highly qualified and experienced professionals within the ESL field, with high school and tertiary teaching experience.

Each teacher understands the needs of international students – providing a community of trust, care and success. Reports are given to you twice a term.
