Nelson College's ESOL Immersion programs provide English language support for students with little or no English. Senior Immersion is a 4-hour a week course that takes the place of English and/or other core subjects. The key focus of the course is building literacy skills which can be transferred to the workplace.
Students in this course may range from Year 11 to Year 13. Students placed in this program may gradually transition out to other subjects as they acquire the level of English needed to cope with the rest of the curriculum.
This course is designed as extra language support for former refugee, migrant and international students who speak English as a second or other language.
