    Course Overview

    RGIT Australia’s General English (ELICOS) program will help students to develop their listening, speaking, reading, and general communication skills.

    RGIT Australia’s General English (ELICOS) program is aimed at non-native English speakers or people with a minimum to average level of English competency.
