EAL/D Support

Edited on March 21, 2023

EAL/D students are those whose first language is a language or dialect other than English and who require additional support to develop proficiency in Standard Australian English (SAE).

These students may include:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • immigrants to Australia and temporary visa holders from non-English speaking countries
  • students with a refugee background
  • children born in Australia of migrant heritage where English is not spoken at home
  • English-speaking students returning to Australia after extended periods in non-English speaking settings
  • children of deaf adults who use Auslan as their first language
  • international students from non-English speaking countries.
