English

Whether you are a competent English speaker or a beginner to the language, WAIFS caters for your needs, with a range of English classes from Certificate I in Spoken and Written English through to Certificate IV.

All WAIFS English Certificates are recognised by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). This means that, at WAIFS, you are undertaking a nationally recognised qualification, not just simply a general English course (ELICOS). Enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainers provide you with a multi-dimensional approach to learning.

Each English course is arranged into a series of modules designed to maximise your potential in a specific language-skill area; for example, speaking or grammar. You are given opportunities to demonstrate and further your knowledge of the language through a variety of projects and assessment tasks, with a specific focus on developing your speaking and listening skills, as well as improving reading and writing.

We also offer you special support for preparing for IELTS tests.

Students who have completed our English courses have gone on to tertiary studies or employment filled with greater confidence in their English language skills.
