English language pathways

UWA CELT offers two ways, or pathways to improve English language to the proficiency level required by the University for entry into its undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs

Language and Communication Essentials classes are for learners from beginners to advanced levels. Language and Communication Essentials is a pathway to all other English language programs at UWA.

Language and Communications Essentials

Each five-week Language and Communication Essentials teaching module is taught through interesting topics, including about Australia and its society. You will also develop your ability to communicate clearly in English along with a variety of useful language skills including:

  • reading and understanding different types of English texts
  • writing clearly and accurately
  • taking part with ease in conversations and discussions
  • listening to and understanding different varieties of spoken English
  • speaking clearly and fluently with easily understood pronunciation
  • using grammar and vocabulary to convey meaning well

Sample Timetables

UWA CELT runs dual timetables for ELICOS programs. Language and Communication Essentials usually runs as a morning program (8.30am - 12.45pm) however, the timetable is subject to change to an afternoon program (1pm - 5.15pm) at the discretion of the UWA CELT Academic Management Team. Confirmation of the program times will be provided to students at time of enrolment.

Students do not need to identify which timetable they would like to enrol in.  The Centre will place students in the most appropriate timetable based on their level of English and general demand.
