At AILFE we offer English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS). (CRICOS Code: 0100012) The General English courses cover all English skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking) as well as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Our English team of trainers aim to create a fun and practical learning environment for all learners while extending the learning beyond the classroom covering topics that are useful for everyday communication and correspondence.


Our courses are suitable for anyone who would like to simply develop their English, or anyone looking for a pathway to prepare for academic studies. The course is available at all levels from Elementary to Advanced and all levels are offered in intensive intakes.


At AILFE we believe that learning without having fun is not possible! This is why we also offer incursions, excursions and variety of fun activities for English learning.
