Australia – The Education Destination 21 Victorian goVernment schools english language programs Victorian Government schools help international students to learn English quickly and all classes are held in English. On arrival, international students may attend an intensive English Language Program before they move into mainstream classes. The personalised English language tuition offered in Victoria plays a critical role in helping students achieve the required levels of proficiency to successfully complete their high school studies. Ying Yi Wang, a student from China, explains her experience of studying at an in-school English Language Centre. ‘I can write a long essay, do an oral presentation and talk to the local students more fluently than before,’ she says. ‘It’s very necessary for international students to learn English at an in-school language centre. We can know more about the school, get used to the teaching style and improve our English before we go to the mainstream class.’ live with an australian family Arriving in a foreign country without personal relationships in your local community can make the challenge of settling in, learning a new language and completing one’s studies exceedingly difficult. For a young person away from their own family, a homestay family is the ideal way to feel that you belong, to accelerate your English language learning, experience how ‘the locals’ live and settle comfortably into your studies. Many international students find that the family they live with in Victoria becomes their second family. Dedicated international student support Victorian Government schools place high importance on the welfare of students. Each secondary school has an International Student Coordinator to meet the individual needs of international students. They welcome and support students at the point of arrival, during their transition into school life and onwards. The International Student Coordinator will be there to provide them with around the clock support from the time they touch down in Victoria right up until their final day at secondary school. ■ FinD out more Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development GPO Box 4367, Melbourne, VIC 3001 tel: +61 3 9637 2990 Fax: +61 3 9637 2184 email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: www.study.vic.gov.au cricos Provider code: 00861K “I chose to study in Victoria, Australia because it is well known for its quality education system, where students can receive academic certificates that are accepted around the world.
