The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians. It helps create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. It is through the study of English that individuals learn to analyse, understand, communicate with and build relationships with others and with the world around them. The study of English helps young people develop the knowledge and skills needed for education, training and the workplace. It helps them become ethical, thoughtful, informed and active members of society.

The Western Australian Curriculum: English, aims to ensure that students:

  • Learn to listen to, read, view, speak, write, create and reflect on increasingly complex and sophisticated spoken, written and multimodal texts across a growing range of contexts with accuracy, fluency and purpose.
  • Appreciate, enjoy and use the English language in all its variations and develop a sense of its richness and power to evoke feelings, convey information, form ideas, facilitate interaction with others, entertain, persuade and argue.
  • Understand how Standard Australian English works in its spoken and written forms and in combination with non-linguistic forms of communication to create meaning.
  • Develop interest and skills in inquiring into the aesthetic aspects of texts, and develop an informed appreciation of literature.

In 2020, our main focus area in English is: 'Talk For Writing'.


'Talk For Writing' is a unique approach that uses spoken activities to develop writing skills.


As children read and are read to, they store patterns that form the building blocks of written expression. In order to write sentence patterns appropriate to a given text (e.g. a recount starts with ‘when, who, what and where’ elements) children need to have these patterns modelled with multiple opportunities to say them before being expected to write them. In 'Talk For Writing', the process of 'Imitation – Innovation – Invention' is explored. Students learn to orally recite and act out popular stories through listening and reading. The teacher maps out the story using pictures to aid students’ memory. The repetition allows the students to interact with the text and helps them to internalise the language patterns and text features. Students are then taught to use the underlying structure of the original text to create their own version on a different topic. Over time, they move towards independent writing as they create texts about their own topics.

“Unsurprisingly, the best writers in any class are always readers. Reading influences writing - the richness, depth and breadth of reading determines the writer that we become.”

- Pie Corbett, Talk For Writing.

Thoughtful English Homemade

My name is Mark and I've been teaching English for 10 years! I've taught it all: IELTS, OET, Academic Preparation, Business, and General English.
I believe that really learning a language comes from living the language: learning the culture, reading, growing your knowledge about the world.
I believe that a class is useful when you have a teacher that you like and respect.
I believe that grammar is important, but that expressing your ideas must be the priority.
I believe these things because I am a teacher, but also a learner.
As a high school student, I learned French. I spent summers in Quebec, and read books in French. There were no online resources to do so at that time.
In university, I learned German. I lived in Germany. There were still no internet resources at the time. I read books, newspapers, and did my best to meet people.
After university, I lived in Korea and learned Korean. I read books, newspapers. I watched a lot of movies. I had conversation partners.
And today, despite my busy schedule, I'm keeping my 3 languages, while trying to learn a 4th: Catalan.
I've helped hundreds of students get the IELTS Band Score 7. I believe that when you get that score (Band 7, or C1) that you change as a person. Something happens to you. I want you to experience that.
Here in Melbourne, Australia, I watch with satisfaction as my students get that score. But what I love more, is when I see them grow as people. Many get their scores because they become wiser and more complete individuals. They make friends here in Australia. They learn about the local culture and the local people.
