English courses in Brisbane

We offer a range of moderate to high intensity English courses in Brisbane for students of all proficiency levels, from beginner to advanced. You can select a general English course, or a more specialised program to prepare for university in Australia, get an internship, or take an English exam. Your English course in Brisbane can be as short as 2 weeks or as long as a year, depending on your availability, goals, and budget.

All our language courses in Brisbane take place in our English school, centrally located and designed for an optimal learning experience. Dedicated staff members will help you with accommodation, organise after-class social activities, and advise you on your future academic or professional goals. Our English courses in Brisbane are not a simple pay by the hour affair, but rather a full-service immersion package for students looking to improve their English in a meaningful way.

EF Brisbane – Tour of the school

Accommodation & activities

English courses aren't everything. After learning some new skills, you need time to practice speaking English to consolidate what you've learned. That's where your accommodation and after-class activities come in. All our English courses in Brisbane include accommodation with a local host family and a range of afternoon and evening activities. We also organise excursions around Australia for an additional fee. Do not think of these as "extras", but rather as an integral part of your English course in Brisbane. This is when you will really come to grips with using English.

EF homestay

Come home to a Brisbane host family and you can guarantee that you'll spend your entire day in English. A host family can teach you English expressions, give you advice on what to see while you're in Brisbane, and most importantly, give you daily practice speaking English. Host family accommodation is included in the price of every English course in Brisbane.

EF residence

For a more independent lifestyle, stay in an international student residence in Brisbane. We have two student residences in Brisbane, both with single and twin rooms and a shared BBQ area.
