If you have recently arrived in Australia and need to get learn basic English language skills to live, study and work in your new community – this is the course for you!
This nationally recognised qualification is fee free for eligible Tasmanian residents, and is designed for people from a language background other than English who have a post-beginner level of English.
In this course, you’ll develop the English skills you need to have short simple conversations, carry out daily tasks, such as shopping or making appointments, read and write simple texts, such as forms, notes, short emails and SMS.
Your learning will be based around ‘settlement themes’ to help you gain an understanding about things like Australia’s health system, housing, news/current affairs, numeracy, the Australian community and how to be work ready.
In this course you will undertake different types of activities including role plays, class discussions and listening to guest speakers, as well as using audio-visual resources (iPads, DVDs, CDs, etc.), technology and some games to practice your English.
You’ll also have the opportunity to go on a number of excursions where you can practise your English in real-life situations and also develop your knowledge of the local community.
Note- This course is fully subsidised for permanent residents from a non-English speaking background. You may be eligible for the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP).
