General English

CQUEnglish offers General English (GE) at various levels to suit your needs. A placement test assesses your current English language ability and places you in the level that suits you. The General English course will help you develop your everyday communication skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking.

  • GE1 (Elementary): IELTS 3.5 or equivalent
  • GE2 (Pre-intermediate): IELTS 4.0 or equivalent or successful completion of GE1
  • GE3 (Intermediate): IELTS 4.5 or equivalent or successful completion of GE2
