English is Australia’s national language. People in Australia speak many languages but to participate fully in Australian life you need to learn to speak and understand English. With English, you can access important services and become independent.

You will need to know how to speak English if you wish to become an Australian citizen. To help you learn English, you may be able to attend the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP).
