Focusing on spoken and written English for work, further education and general language skill development, English 103 – Advanced responds to the needs of individual students. Over eight weeks, the course will review and extend your existing English language skills through interesting, practical and enjoyable learner-centered activities.

If you want to learn Advanced general English in Sydney, this course is for you.

Who should attend?

This advanced English course is for adults learning English as a second language. Students must have completed at least one course of English 102 – Intermediate (or equivalent), and will be ready for advanced language skill development.


There is a need in our community to provide an English class for developing proficiency for English as a Second Language learners who find themselves above the intermediate level. These learners may need general or specific elements of English to interact in our English speaking society. Having a ‘flexible’ class has the potential to support, encourage and enhance a learner’s present proficiency.

During the course the intention is that all or some of the following will be covered, but not necessarily in the order given. Parts of the curriculum may be adapted to suit the needs of the class. Your tutor will discuss any potential changes or revisions proposed to the course agenda.

  • Your ability to speak and write using appropriate grammar and vocabulary; usage and quality pronunciation will be enhanced.
  • Every learner at this level will benefit from this course with individual attention given to each student.
  • You will expand your vocabulary and learn about Australian culture.

The objectives of this English 103 Course will relate to the individual student more than a pre-determined set of objectives that may not suit each learner’s needs. While the learners often have unique needs, they also require similar learning elements. With thoughtful preparation, individual and whole group needs can be bridged. By the end of the course, students will have practiced and improved speaking, listening, reading and writing in a variety of contexts.

Course testimonials:

  • Cynthia said: It was a fruitful course, our teacher Iyan was an exceptional person, very active and full of energy, never tired and so professional, he was working with us like if we were his family. The atmosphere of the class was excellent. And something very impressive that we were all foreigners, each one of us came from a different country but we felt like a family... thank you for everything. May God bless you all
