General English

Apple Study Group (ASG) provides high quality English language tuition and accommodation for overseas students who wish to study and live in Sydney.

ASG provides opportunities for students to successfully engage with the local community and culture, as well as socialize with students from other countries. ASG believes that students have greater learning success when they feel part of the community in which the language is spoken.

ASG courses are designed to improve students’ general language skills while experiencing an Australian lifestyle. By helping students to achieve their goals, ASG contributes to the successful development of their personal and professional lives. With the development of ASG Pathway courses, students can realize their goals of entering Australian tertiary institutions and higher education.

ASG has an extensive student support network which includes placing students in carefully selected accommodation, counseling students on their best study options both within and after ASG, supplying information on local and national cultural attractions, assisting with legal and immigration requests and providing personal assistance and advice.

In its professional interaction with industry partners such as other language institutions, accrediting bodies, government and the wider community, ASG aims to participate both responsibly and creatively. ASG seeks to grow in its role as a successful business in both the ELICOS sector and the wider community through its active participation in educational and civic organizations and its underlying commitment to meeting students’ learning needs.
We believe that communication is fundamental to all successful human relationships and that language is best learnt in the community to which it belongs. In providing high quality courses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, ASG provides an excellent learning environment in which students can study and grow.
