At CQUEnglish, we take pride in teaching English to international students and improving their learning experience. Feedback from the 2022 English Language Barometer survey shows our students rated us highly on many important factors including good teachers, course content, course organisation, learning support and assessment. 

Not sure which English course to choose? To help you with this, we have developed a short English language test so you can check your English level in a few minutes. Based on your test results, we will recommend the English course that might be suitable for you. Please note that the test is only a general guide and should not be used for academic purposes.
