Learning a new language can be one of the most difficult tasks that anyone ever undertakes.
There are so many grammatical and lexical rules that change between languages.
It can be a challenging task – but one that is so rewarding!
That’s why choosing the correct English school and tutors to guide you through the maze of language is so important.
Whether you’re an international student looking to complete their education, a permanent resident who wants to improve their English, or even someone planning on sitting the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), Academia is the place for you to learn English!
The experienced teachers at Academia are passionate about language and are more than qualified to teach you everything you need to know to confidently master the language.

English courses that fulfil all educational needs
Everyone who desires to learn a language, any language, has their own reason for doing so.
Academia understands this and has created three separate courses that are designed to meet three different needs, broadly speaking.
This means that whatever the reason is that you have decided to study English in Australia, Academia has a course that suits your circumstances.
General English (GE)
The General English (GE) course can run from 2 to 60 weeks and involves four days of study, amounting to 20 hours a week. Classes run from Monday to Thursday. On Fridays, additional classes are provided at no extra cost to you.
These optional classes include Conversation Club, where you can practice your speaking skills, and Job Club, where we share helpful tips to writing a resume and answering common job interview questions.
Find out more about these FREE weekly activities and classes here.
The GE course offers six levels from Beginner to Advanced.
The main focus of the program is to help our students better communicate in everyday situations.
It provides the basic English skills needed to function as a part of an English-speaking community.
English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
Similar to the General English course, our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course runs from Monday to Thursday with 20 hours of class time per week.
Additional classes and activities are also available on Friday.
There are two different levels within the EAP course:
English for Academic Purposes 1 (EAP1)
Out of the two Academic English courses provided by Academia, EAP1 is the more elementary fo the two.
However, students will still be required to have a confident understanding of basic English in order to begin and complete this level.
You will require an IELTS score of 5.0 or equivalent to be eligible to enter EAP1.
English for Academic Purposes 2 (EAP2)
In order to be eligible for EAP2, you must first complete EAP1: vital skills learnt in EAP1 will be needed to successfully complete EAP2.
EAP2 prepares students who wish to enter tertiary education and further their studies. You will learn English language skills to help you complete your degree!
English for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
There are a multitude of reasons that people elect to take the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
Some people are required to take the test in order to gain employment in Australia or to enter into higher education at an Australian tertiary institute.
While others simply elect to take the test in order to further the elocution of the English language.
Throughout this program you will have the opportunity to practice every aspect of IELTS, including listening, writing, reading, and speaking.
There will also be multiple opportunities for you to take a practice IELTS test in preparation for the real test.
Classes run for five hours a day between Monday and Thursday. There are additional classes and social activities available on Fridays for no extra cost. The classes will be delivered over a 20 week period and require an intermediate to advanced knowledge of English.
