General English - Level 5
"I have learnt about different cultures and how to improve myself and my English.
I’ve enjoyed the teachers, the facilities and the classroom program at the Institute. In my classes, the lessons are very interactive. We learn faster this way."
UNSW Institute of Languages offers General English at 6 levels - elementary to advanced - to suit your needs.
You will develop the language skills you need for any situation - social, academic or work.
The classes and self-access online learning resources will help you to improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing and develop your fluency and confidence in using English.
