What's your level?

ELC AMEP courses are designed for different levels of English. We use the International Second Language Proficiency Rating (ISLPR) which is the Australian government approved assessment scale. People from overseas may have had an assessment using the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

All students have a short assessment before starting a course at ELC AMEP. To help you decide which course is right for you, you can use the guide below.
