Immersion Classroom Program.
A course in immersion means that a student is placed in a situation where their only option is to speak English.
This is done by creating a ‘buddy’ system where a student is assigned to a local student as their mentor and besides their classroom activities is their additional source of language learning.
Of course, if there are other students from their own culture at the same school, there will be opportunity to speak to them in their native language but this is not encouraged.
The Homestay is the same. No two student from the same country are allowed to reside in the same home.
Immersion classes means that all classes are in English. There are no “Special English Classes” for a student.
The student is placed in a conventional Australia classroom and must learn to “think” in English. At the discretion of the school, the student may be
allowed to record their classes (audio) so as he/she can listen to the class later in the evening at their own pace in order to complete their required homework.
