The Course in EAL teaches basic English to adults arriving from conflict zones and refugee camps who have experienced an interrupted education and little to no previous education experiences. Students can start the course at any time. They will learn English, as well as basic literacy and communication skills.
Friendly Melbourne Polytechnic teachers will show students the basics of the English alphabet and how to identify sounds of letters and words. Students will participate in familiar spoken exchanges. For greater ability to settle in Australia, students need to establish learning routines and develop basic comprehension and handwriting skills. This course will provide the foundations of English as Another Language that can be applied to further learning. Melbourne Polytechnic students can use our libraries, computer labs, and other student services. This course is funded by the Australian Government through the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) and Skills for Education and Employment (SEE), as well as the Victorian Government for eligible learners.
Following successful completion of Course in Initial EAL, students can progress into the Course in EAL to continue to improve their English.
