Student profiles

    English is a skill that opened extraordinary opportunities in australia. During the GE course we learned the basics as well as the most complex structures in English to communicate in real life. I gained confidence to go outside the classroom and express myself in the Australian workforce.

    My work at Centre for English Teaching (CET) strengthened my skills in stakeholder relations. I expected CET to prepare me for university but it has done so much more than that: it prepared me for leadership.
