Students learn to manipulate the various photographic images with Adobe Photoshop and create and manipulate vector graphic with Adobe Premiere. In other sessions students learn fundamental concepts and techniques in the production of motion graphics and animation for digital video and interactive media with Adobe After Effects.
Personal English Coaching
Care is one of our core values. City Language Centre provides individual/personalised English coaching and feedback to all students free of charge. This coaching program is all about helping and motivating learners to make their own decisions about their language learning journey. We shouldn’t restrict ourselves to simply teaching the language.
On this program, every 5 weeks, teachers will meet with students for “one-on-one” Personal English Coaching, to give them individual feedback, discuss 5-week Achievement Report, set targets/goals. Also, if any student is not progressing, their teacher informs the Academic Manager for further support or intervention strategies (if required).
The Pin Wheel Student Café & Reception
One of the most unique elements at City Language Centre is our simulated café area, reception student lounge all bundled together. It is inspired by Melbourne’s café culture where people meet with friends, talk about future plans and feel comfortable just hanging out. Students can make their own tea and coffee, ask reception anything they would like to know and also enjoy their own meals. This simulated café is also used by teachers to well prepare students who would like to work in Melbourne’s buzzing hospitably sector.
City Language Centre is located in the central business district in the heart of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. CLC is surrounded by excellent public transport; we are two blocks from the two main train stations, Flinders Street Station and Melbourne Central Station.
