The centre is located in Jacobs Street close to Bankstown Square and opposite Bankstown Council offices.

It is a two-storey, blue, brick and cement building. At the front of the building, there are steps and a ramp. On the ground floor there is a reception area, about 7 classrooms, childcare, teachers’ staff room and amenities. The first floor has a library, computer room, counsellor’s room and five classrooms.

There are many different staff in the centre: trained, experienced adult ESL teachers; friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, bilingual reception staff.

The students at the centre have different nationalities and different language, education and cultural backgrounds. They have a range of English levels needs which depends on their previous English study and current goals.

If you want to join a class at AMES you need to make an appointment for an interview to find out if you are eligible and what time is suitable for you to study.
