1 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Want to be a Doctor? Are you SURE ???

2 Win Madigan - Western English Language School OK IF you ACCEPT and UNDERSTAND the CHALLENGES and SACRIFICES you must face. IF YOU ARE SURE THEN … No Problem… No Worries

3 Win Madigan - Western English Language School For example:- 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, 2030, 2031, 2032……….. If you have missed some schooling are you happy to study for up to 25 years to become a doctor? The Tertiary Entrance Score for University to be a DOCTOR is 98 or 99%. This is VERY difficult. AND 25 years is TOO long to try for it!!!!! HELP!!! I need a DOCTOR!!

4 Win Madigan - Western English Language School If you are new to the country and your English is not good can you understand and learn all the language you need to become a doctor?? acid: This is anything that gives off H+ ions in water. Acids have a pH less than 7 and are good at dissolving metals. They turn litmus paper red and phenolphthalein colorless. acid anhydride: This is an oxide that forms an acid when you stick it in water. An example is SO3 - when you add water it turns into sulfuric acid, H2SO4. acid dissociation constant (Ka): This is equal to the ratio of the concentrations of an acid's conjugate base and the acid present when a weak acid dissociates in water. That is, if you have a solution of Acid X where the concentration of the conjugate base is 0.5 M and the concentration of the acid is 10 M, the acid dissociation constant is 0.5/10 = activated complex: In a chemical reaction, the reagents have to join together into a great big blob before they can fall back apart into the products. This great big blob is called the activated complex (a.k.a. transition state) For Example

5 Win Madigan - Western English Language School and so on ….. activation energy: The minimum amount of energy needed for a chemical reaction to take place. For some reactions this is very small (it only takes a spark to make gasoline burn). For others, it's very high (when you burn magnesium, you need to hold it over a Bunsen burner for a minute or so). activity series: This is when you arrange elements in the order of how much they tend to react with water and acids. actual yield: When you do a chemical reaction, this is the amount of chemical that you actually make (i.e. The amount of stuff you can weigh). addition reaction: A reaction where atoms add to a carbon-carbon multiple bond. adsorption: When one substance collects of the surface of another one. alcohol: An organic molecule containing an -OH group aldehyde: An organic molecule containing a -COH group alkali metals: Group I in the periodic table. alkaline earth metals: Group II in the periodic table. alkane: An organic molecule which contains only single carbon-carbon bonds. alkene: An organic molecule containing at least one C=C bond alkyne: An organic molecule containing at least one C-C triple bond. allotropes: When you have different forms of an element in the same state. The relationship that white phosphorus and red phosphorus have to each other is that they're allotropes. alloy: A mixture of two metals. Usually, you add very small amounts of a different element to make the metal stronger and harder. alpha particle: A radioactive particle equivalent to a helium nucleus (2 protons, 2 neutrons) amine: An organic molecule which consists of an ammonia molecule where one or more of the hydrogen atoms has been replaced by organic groups. amino acid: The basic building blocks of proteins. They're called "amino acids" because they're both amines (they contain nitrogen) and acids (carboxylic acids, to be precise)

6 Win Madigan - Western English Language School An on …. alpha particle: A radioactive particle equivalent to a helium nucleus (2 protons, 2 neutrons) molecule has some charge separation (usually because the molecule is polar), it's said to have a dipole moment. dipole-dipole force: When the positive end of a polar molecule becomes attracted to the negative end of another polar molecule. dissociation: When water dissolves a compound. distillation: This is when you separate a mixture of liquids by heating it up. The one with the lowest boiling point evaporates first, followed by the one with the next lowest boiling point, etc. double-displacement reaction (a.k.a. double replacement reaction): When the cations of two ionic compounds switch places. effusion: When a gas moves through an opening into a chamber that contains no pressure. Effusion is much faster than diffusion because there are no other gas molecules to get in the way. electrolysis: When electricity is used to break apart a chemical compound. electrolyte: An ionic compound that dissolves in water to conduct electricity. Strong electrolytes break apart completely in water; weak electrolytes only fall apart a little bit. (Actually, this isn't entirely true, as Raji Heyovska informs me. Apparently strong electrolytes also dissociate partially in water, though much more so than weak ones. For more info, check out his paper at inst.cas.cz/~rheyrovs. However, it is also true that the usual definition of a strong electrolyte is one that dissociates completely in water, which is why I include that definition above.)http://www.jh- inst.cas.cz/~rheyrovs electron affinity: The energy change that accompanies the addition of an electron to an atom in the gas phase. electronegativity: A measurement of how much an atom tends to steal electrons from atoms that it's bonded to. Elements at the top right of the periodic table (excluding the noble gases) are very electronegative while atoms in the bottom left are not very electronegative (a.k.a. "electropositive") electropositive: When something is not at all electronegative. In fact, it tends to lose electrons rather than to gain them. Elements that are electropositive are generally to the left and bottom of the periodic table. empirical formula: A reduced molecular formula. If you have a molecular formula and you can reduce all of the subscripts by some constant number, the result is the empirical formula. emulsion: When very small drops of a liquid are suspended in another. An example of an emulsion is salad dressing after you've shaken it up. enantiomers: molecules that are nonsuperimposable mirror images of each other. endothermic: When a process absorbs energy (gets cold).

7 Win Madigan - Western English Language School THINK ABOUT THIS Most students who have grown up in Australia CANNOT be doctors. BUT There are MANY other GOOD JOBS in the MEDICAL and HEALTH area that you CAN study for. T.E.R of 98 or 99%?? What OTHER things can I study?

22 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Maybe You Don’t Want to Work in Health and Medicine. Maybe LAW Interests You.

23 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Want to be a Lawyer? Are you sure???

24 Win Madigan - Western English Language School BUT You need to understand that it will be VERY difficult. IF YOU ARE SURE THEN … That’s O.K. 

25 Win Madigan - Western English Language School If you have interrupted schooling or very little English are you ready to study for up to 20 years to become a lawyer? The Enter Score for University to be a LAWYER is 99%. This is VERY difficult. AND 20 years or more is TOO long!!!!! HELP!!! I need a DOCTOR!!!

26 Win Madigan - Western English Language School How can I help you today? I’m tired doctor. 20 years or more is TOO long to study to be a lawyer. What can I do? Stop worrying right now. I can help you. There are MANY courses you can do if you like LAW. REALLY! THANK YOU DOCTOR!!!

27 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Think about this: Usually because They are interested in LAW They believe that following the LAW is important and They like to HELP people. Why do people become LAWYERS???

28 Win Madigan - Western English Language School And think about this too Most students who have grown up in Australia CANNOT be Lawyers either. The score of 99% to get into University is too difficult for most students.

29 Win Madigan - Western English Language School So let’s think again about OTHER good jobs in the area of LAW

30 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Here are some interesting jobs in the area of LAW

31 Win Madigan - Western English Language School I want to talk to a LAWYER!!! Good morning! How can I help you? 1. Administrative Assistant

33 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Customs Officer Many people come to Australia every day from other countries. They don’t always know what they can bring into Australia. I can help with this. WOOF Me too!!

34 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Law Clerk (Helps the Lawyer) I need those papers you were working on for me. Are they ready yet? Yes they are. I finished them yesterday.

35 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Joining the Army, Air force or Navy ARMY NAVY AIRFORCE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE LAWS OF AUSTRALIA, YOU MAY ALSO BE INTERESTED IN AUSTRALIA’S DEFENCE FORCES.

36 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Legal Secretary A legal secretary works very closely with the lawyer.

37 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Australian or Victorian Public Servant If you study hard and your English is good, you can work for the government, especially in MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS.

38 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Keyboard Operator/word processor for Law Companies Take the time to learn to TYPE. This skill can get you many good jobs.

39 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Police Officer Victoria Police needs people from Asia and Africa.

40 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Accounts Clerk I like working with numbers and helping the Lawyer with his Accounts. SOMETIMES!

41 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Welfare/Community Worker The people in your community need a lot of help to understand Australia’s laws. You can get a job that will help them.

42 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Security Officer There are many types of security officer. This one works at the airport.

43 Win Madigan - Western English Language School These are just SOME of the jobs you can think about if you are interested in LAW. There are many, many others that are also very good and very interesting.

44 Win Madigan - Western English Language School And the way to study for them (the pathway) is similar to the pathways you have just seen for some of the jobs in Health and Medicine. HOWEVER ALL courses need you to be able to do 2 very important things.

45 Win Madigan - Western English Language School Be able to express yourself fluently both in SPEAKING and IN WRITING in English. 2. Be able to READ and UNDERSTAND all the work you are required to do in the course.

46 Win Madigan - Western English Language School SO You must remember this when you are thinking about your future. BE REALISTIC AND SENSIBLE For example:-

47 Win Madigan - Western English Language School WHY SHOULDN’T I GO TO HIGH SCHOOL??? FIRSTLY, YOU ARE NEARLY 18. MANY HIGH SCHOOLS SAY N0 TO STUDENTS WHO ARE 18. SECONDLY YOU HAVE MISSED A LOT OF SCHOOL. HIGH SCHOOL WILL BE TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOU. THIRDLY, YOUR ENGLISH IS NOT YET GOOD ENOUGH TO DO YEARS 11 AND 12. WHAT CAN I DO IF I DON’T GO TO HIGH SCHOOL.
