Explore English (Melbourne) Victoria


You have taken the first step of your journey to cross International borders to study English. By taking this innovative step, you will find yourself immersed into an exciting world of language with other international students who will soon be your friends. As one of our Explorers, you will be welcomed into our learning community that provides interactive learning classrooms and fun extra curricula activities.

Every 5 weeks, the whole Centre goes on excursions to explore the delights of Melbourne and the surrounding region. At these excursions, you will have an opportunity to practice your English in a real social situation. You can make mistakes and practice again and again without judgement because we offer you exposure to explore your new language in a fun and relaxed environment.

In the classroom, you will find the teachers supportive and culturally sensitive. Many of them have travelled the world (they may have even been a teacher in your home country!) and therefore have the knowledge of really making our students feel safe while they learn English. Mind you, we do expect you to do your homework and follow the English Only Policy rule because this strengthens the learning process. 

There are lots of activities outside the classroom too and your teachers will take you out and about as part of the curriculum so you can explore other ways of practicing Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening in English. As a student at the ELICOS Centre in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, you will have everything on your doorstep from coffee lounges to shopping to sporting facilities.
