Westall English Language Centre is a Government funded facility which provides an Intensive English Language Program for newly arrived students. The Language Centre caters for students who have arrived in Australia as refugees, migrants or are full fee paying overseas students.
Students who meet the eligibility criteria can attend an English language school, campus or centre for between two to four terms. The small class sizes and high number of contact hours enable qualified EAL teachers to deliver an intensive English language program tailored to the differing needs of students. This helps them to adapt as quickly as possible to the Australian education system and society. EAL is taught through the content of all learning areas.
Although the focus is on English and language preparation for the mainstream classroom, additional activities and learning in the areas of personal development are also organised. Regular incursions and excursions are undertaken to support the learning and to expose newly arrived students to Australian life and culture.
