Overview

English for Teens at RMIT is an exciting English program designed for secondary and high school students. In addition to developing their English skills, students on the English for Teens courses will be introduced to valuable thinking and academic skills. This will help them to prepare for their future higher education.

Students will work together on projects during the course. These learner-centred projects require students to work on real-world tasks using English.

The eight levels of the English for Teens Program are approximately equivalent to IELTS bands. A student completing all levels of the English for Teens Program should have an English proficiency approximately equivalent to an IELTS score of 7.0 or higher.

English placement test

We offer English placement tests to find your current level for you. The test includes grammar, writing and speaking and is conducted by RMIT English teachers to make sure you are enrolled in the correct level.

Course structures

English for Teens at RMIT includes:

  • 8 levels, from Elementary to Proficiency
  • Each level is divided into 2 modules (A&B) of 60 hours each
  • Each module includes 3 soft skills workshops
  • Advanced, Advanced Plus and Proficiency levels have an inbuilt component of IELTS test preparation and use IELTS textbooks. Each module also includes a full IELTS practice test and a learning outcome guarantee when students finish those levels.

 

If your official IELTS test result does not meet the outcome band score of your course, you can repeat one course free of charge if you meet these criteria:

  • A minimum of 85% attendance
  • Completion of 80% of homework assignments, including extensive reading, online study, and uploaded writing tasks on time
  • IELTS test result must be submitted within 3 months of the final day of the course

 

Learning, teaching and assessment

Experienced teachers with international teaching qualifications

Students will study with RMIT's native-level English teachers whose international teaching qualifications comply with RMIT global standards and who have at least 3 years of experience. In addition, English for Teens has been accredited by NEAS - Australia's prestigious English language teaching quality assurance system. Thus, students will study in an environment that maximizes their English language development in Vietnam.

 

Use of technology

Students will be facilitated in their use of technology on the English for Teens course. Students have access to online workbooks to independently develop their language skills outside of class. They will also be supported in using technology as part of their projects. This will include the use of digital presentation and poster tools, such as Sway and Google Slides. Additionally, teachers will use digital tools, such as Quizlet and Kahoot, as part of class to engage and motivate learners.

 

Future Me Workshops

The "Future Me" workshops are additional sessions to the 60 hours of the course. Therefore we can equip students with new skills without reducing the time available to focus on developing essential language skills. The workshops are targeted at developing two important skill sets:

  • Career planning: Exploring strengths and natural potentials; Learning about career cluster map; Engaging with companies in different industries
  • Life skills: Collaboration; Communication; Critical thinking; Creative thinking; Emotional development; Learning to learn; Social responsibilities

Students can access the University's modern library with thousands of books on a wide range of disciplines. It also has many graded readers which are designed for language learners.

 

Assessment

Each module includes:

  • 3-4 unit quizzes
  • 2-3 projects. Students are assessed on the development process and on the final product, presentation or performance. The final product may consist of student-produced videos, websites, posters and/or presentations.
  • End of course assessment.


Parents will be updated on overall performance mid-course and end of course.
