5 reasons Greenwich English College teachers should be proud

December 4, 2018 by GEC Academic Team

1. We operate in a very big pool
Our teachers demonstrate their expertise and high standards on a national and international stage. Because our approach to excellence is second to none, we have been nominated for, and won, international awards including our recent success as winner of the "Excellence in Education Award 2018" at the Australia Brazil Business Council Awards. Our teachers are valued and in demand overseas, with some of our best going abroad to run teacher training programs, most recently to China. (maybe more details of Justin’s trip here).

Hope Charity Market Day - A charity fund raising campaign project delivered by English for Business students

August 31, 2016 by Jane

Thursday, last week, English for Business students at the Sydney campus held their Spring Hope Charity Market. This was a practical fund raising campaign project carried out as part of their Marketing and Sales class. Students involved were responsible for full delivery of the project from planning, budgeting, and resourcing to executing a successful charity event.

And what a success it was!

The morning team and the evening team collectively raised a record-breaking $1,451.00! Proceeds will be given to charities they have each nominated. 

Congratulations to the event organisers and thank you to all the supporters who have helped raise money for a great cause. We all look forward to the next charity event - they have some mighty big shoes to fill*.

* Big shoes to fill: (idiom) to have to meet high expectations about something that came before

June 15, 2016 by Mamta Bhatt

As a student you have no doubt asked the question: “What score do I need in IELTS to get this visa?”. In many cases the answer might put you in a panic mode as many of you will need to get the ‘magic’ 7 to be able to apply for a certain type of visa. Many candidates decide to study by themselves and use materials available online, while others choose to do a course at an English college in Australia. No matter what option they choose, in many situations candidates still struggle to get 7.0. Below are our suggestions to help you achieve your IELTS goals.

The use of the to-infinitive

January 11, 2016 by Mamta Bhatt

We use the to-infinitive to express purpose.
For example, I am going to the supermarket to buy some food.

Relative Clauses

January 4, 2016 by Mamta Bhatt

We use relative clauses to give additional information about people or things without starting another sentence. By combining sentences with a relative clause, your text becomes more fluent and you can avoid repeating certain words.

December 7, 2015 by Mamta Bhatt

There are several ways to ensure a cohesive argument. Some are related to the ideas you have selected to discuss in your essay, others relate to grammatical references that help link those ideas to reasons, those reasons to examples, and that also help you avoid repetition.
