"I was really nervous before my first class because my English was not fluent. My teachers and classmates were so kind and helpful. The other students would open their dictionaries and help to translate words for me. Looking back, it was good to step out of my comfort zone because it made me progress faster."

How we teach

"Students have academic discussions about the weekly theme. These discussions have clear goals, for example, using target vocabulary or supporting an opinion. The groups record their discussions to determine whether they've met the communication goals. They also identify points of improvement for the second recording. Recording helps students to see how they're communicating their ideas."

"Because I completed Monash English Bridging, I was so well prepared before I started my academic studies. Classes were conducted on campus so I became familiar with the university life and culture, and made new friends. I learnt how to write an academic essay, which was essential for assessment. My teachers even helped me learn how to take notes during a lecture!"
