Middle Years English for Academic Purposes

CRICOS Course Code: 083251E

Course Overview

The Middle Years Program at Ƶ18 International School is an exciting course for students aged between 12 and 15 years old. These students are in Years 7 to 9 where deeper subject-specific learning happens. Core to this learning are Wellbeing guidance, the House System, and the Student Representative Council Activities.

This program is taught by subject and TESOL specialists who are registered teachers experienced in working with wonderful students in this age group.

This cohort of students learns English in all subjects, like their mainstream peers: Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Health Science, and Physical Education. They also become familiar with SACE studies by preparing for the first SACE subject, Exploring Identities and Futures (EIF).
The Middle Years Program is designed with the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) years 7 to 9 objectives and those objectives from lower year levels as necessary. These students are involved in developing general English, the English of the Australian classroom, and subject-specific learning. The theory behind the learning is content-based language learning using text-based methodology.

Diagnostic information about language proficiency is collected termly and shared with parents and enrolling schools. This data helps determine when a student is ready to transition to a mainstream course.

The Middle Years Program is excellent for students newly arrived in Australia who need to prepare for mainstream studies:

- In Year 10 at Ƶ18 International School
- In Years 6 to 9 at the wide range of AISA partner schools in Ƶ18

The subjects in this program are taught by specialist teachers.
