Course Overview:

At MLC, you’ll learn General English in a fun, relaxed and multicultural environment. You’ll quickly pick up basic language skills to help you settle into life in Australia and deal with everyday situations with ease.

Our students are taught important communication skills, including grammar, listening, reading, spelling, vocabulary and writing. MLC teachers use a wide variety of teaching materials such as film, the Internet, magazines, newspapers, radio, and television to make the classes interactive.

There are three free afternoon classes, which offer extra support for students with their pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary.

General English is offered at Pre-intermediate, Intermediate and Upper-intermediate levels and can serve as the perfect stepping stone to the study of English for Academic Purposes.
