Intermediate English Courses

Intermediate English courses are for people who already have an understanding of English. The courses will help build your language and communication skills. You will also have the opportunity to choose the topics you study. These courses are part of the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) and are avaliable during the day and evening.

The Intermediate course is built around the Level 3 Certificate in Spoken and Written English. When you complete this Certificate you will receive an award.

What will you learn in an Intermediate course?

You will learn about Australian life, listen to guest speakers and go on excursions.

Our classes will give you lots of opportunities to practise your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. You will also have the option to study electives of your choice. During this time you can work on your grammar, develop computer skills or find out more about living in Australia. You can even study first aid and gain an accredited Senior First Aid Certificate.

An Intermediate course will help you:

  • improve your skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing
  • gain a Certificate in Spoken and Written English
  • gain specialised skills (such as First Aid)
  • plan for your work and study future
  • learn about life in Australia

Most people who complete the Intermediate course find employment, or study at an advanced level, depending on their goals.

Vocational training courses in a wide range of areas are available once you have completed the Intermediate course (eg home based child care, financial services).

Where can you join an Intermediate course?

You can study Intermediate English courses at:

  • Rundle Mall Campus
  • Salisbury Campus
  • Noarlunga Campus

Courses are also offered in community centres and country areas.

Most courses run for one to three terms and each term is 10 weeks long. Day time courses are usually between 15 and 21 hours per week. Evening courses are usually 6 hours a week.
