  • Teach a more specific knowledge of language by supporting students in their learning across the curriculum.
  • Give students a sense of valuing culture of origin and a sense of place in Australian society.
  • Encourage students to use English fluently, accurately and appropriately in activities that involve any or all of the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
  • Encourage enjoyment of learning the English language.
