English courses at Austin Cove Baptist College are designed to develop both verbal and written communication skills and confidence in all students. We encourage the development of critical thought, through close study of written, visual and multimodal texts. Students will develop and produce both imaginative and analytical compositions.

In Years 7 to 10 students concentrate on reading, the development of language skills and the ability to analyse texts and techniques. To cater for all students we differentiate through streaming, assessments and tasks, based on ability and need.

Our Year 11 and Year 12 English courses cater to students at all levels, from ATAR through to Foundation. 


Chinese is offered to our students from Years 7-10 and concentrates not just on the curriculum with reading, listening, speaking and writing tasks, but students are able to immerse themselves in cultural experiences including: cooking, music, painting, martial arts, etc.
