EDP English

General English

(Currently offered in Hanoi-Vietnam only).

If you would like to improve your real life English skills, a General English course at EDP English is the perfect step.

Our General English courses will help you develop language skills for real life situations – like speaking and conversation. We will help you develop the confidence to live, travel or work in Australia or in other English speaking countries. You will graduate with real-world English skills you can use anywhere.

Courses are built around the four core skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course will focus on:

  • building fluency and accuracy in spoken English
  • expanding your vocabulary
  • understanding native and non-native English speakers
  • developing skills and confidence to use English outside the classroom.

You will learn with experienced and qualified teachers in small classes. We will track your progress with regular testing.

We will run a simple test to make sure you are in the right class for your level – and then you can start learning straight away.

Academic English

(Currently offered in Hanoi-Vietnam only).

If you want to improve your English skills for further study in Australia, our Academic English courses can help you.

Academic English can be very different to the English you use every day. Even if you speak English well in conversation, it might be difficult to understand the new words and structures used in university or another academic setting.

In this course, you will develop skills in academic proficiency and literacy in English. You will find it easier to understand and participate in your university course. If you complete the Academic English course successfully, you will be able to use English in a variety of academic contexts and take responsibility for your progress with little support from teachers.

IELTS Preparation

(Currently offered in Hanoi-Vietnam only).

If you want to study in Australia or get an Australian visa, you might need to sit an IELTS test. The EDP IELTS Preparation course will give you the skills you need to succeed.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assesses the English language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is the main language. It is recognised by higher education providers, governments and employers all over the world.

IELTS tests the four skills of language learning. You will develop skills in:

  • listening: note-taking, listening for specific information
  • speaking: expressing ideas and opinions, seeking clarification, pronunciation
  • reading: speed reading strategies, understanding graphs and charts, analysing IELTS specimen papers
  • writing: interpreting questions, organising content, grammatical accuracy.

Succeeding in the IELTS test is also about understanding the test structure. We will help you with that too. Throughout your course you will do regular test practice and role plays. You will learn special test strategies to do with the format of the test and time management.

When you get your IELTS results, you will be given an overall band score from 1.0 (non-user) to 9.0 (expert user). For most higher education programs, you will need a score between 6.0 and 7.5 to be eligible to apply.
