If you speak some simple English but need to work on your fluency, Melbourne Polytechnic’s Certificate II in EAL (Access) is for you. English language skills are very important for success in study and employment in Australia.

Completing this course will give you the English skills to help your life in Australia. You will find it easier to take part in the community. When you finish this course, you can move into the Certificate III in EAL to study English at a higher level.
