General English

 

You can join the Milestones General English course on any Monday and you will soon find that you are better able to communicate in every-day situations and understand native speakers more easily. Milestones gives you the flexibility to study in the mornings or evenings and you can choose to study for 15 or 20 hours each week. 

Every Monday your teacher will work on and improve the specific areas you need. Our teachers don't just use a course book. They also include lots of real-world materials in the lessons.

"My name is Juan Pablo. I really like being here because Melbourne is an incredible city. I had a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and new cultures. The teachers here are incredible, they always teach clearly and always gave me all the support to understand the lessons. The mix of nationalities that exists here is impressive, I met many people from around the world and made great friendships. Today, I know that I have more fluent English. I'm sure that the choice to study at Milestones was very good because this is a great place to learn."
