Language Matters offers language assistance for senior school students studying LOTE. Our foreign language assistants will either assist the language teacher with the language classes or support small groups and liaise with the class teacher on a weekly basis regarding content & structure of tutorial sessions
Our language assistants support teachers with preparation of authentic materials, embody with enthusiasm the target language as an enjoyable inclusive activity. All of Language Matters’ language assistants are native speakers and are prepared to use the target language at all times to adapt it according to the level and ability of the student group.
Their role is to improve the students’ confidence in communicating in their language of study and help them to become more engaged by discussing contemporary aspects of youth culture such as current affairs, education, sport, fashion, films, TV, lifestyles and celebrations, in line with the curriculum for VCE and IB.
