It’s not easy to find a good writing course that satisfies the research writing needs of graduate students. I’m glad I came to Macquarie University English Language Centre it was a great opportunity to enjoy Sydney and improve my writing skills. I would recommend this program to anyone! Sang Eun Lee Yonsei University, Korea

We could learn not only English but the importance of doing things with our classmates. The English we’ve learned (in Japan) is a little different from the one in Australia. We could use the English skills we learned in class on our excursions. Oyagi Masahiro Riseisha High School, Japan

Hear From Our Students

I really enjoyed my time in Macquarie University English Language Centre! Teachers were really nice and enthusiastic. They genuinely do their best to teach us, and I appreciate that. Most importantly, my class was well-organised and interesting! Since I was in English-Chinese interpreting course, I have learned so many things. The teaching has been so effective! There were fun activities as well. My friends and I knitted a blanket for people in need around the world. I strongly recommend the ELC to other students! Its friendly atmosphere and teachers will help you improve your language skills. As I really enjoyed my time here, I’m sure you can enjoy it too! Yeon Ji Park Hanyang University, Korea

My stay in Australia was so fantastic! I really enjoyed the buddy program which provided me with a lot of opportunities to make many Australian friends! I love Australia’s beautiful nature and people, and appreciated all the experiences I had. I will treasure my time here, thank you! Shino Nakajima Ritsumeikan University, Japan
