Learning English

​At Canterbury-Bankstown libraries, we offer many ways for you to learn English.​

All our libraries have resources for English learners, from beginner to more experienced. These include  reading, writing and comprehension books and kits, as well as English Learner Readers with audio CDs. IELTS books and Occupational English Test books are available at some of our libraries.  

You can also  browse our catalogue to explore our collection. You can reserve what you want and ask for it to be sent to you to pick up at your nearest library.

If you prefer to learn online, our eLibrary provides many different resources. Look through our online English resources.
