Distance Learning is delivered across all 9 sites in AMES. There are approximately 50 teachers who teach in the program. Each teachers is allocated a number of students, depending on the number of teaching hours. DL is based on a one-to-one relationship between teacher and student. Currently teacher/student contact can be : face-to-face by telephone by computer- email/Skype
Distance Learning is a course based on a book + CD + DVD which can be studied at home and supported by a teacher. Students complete units of work from IOTY (It’s Over To You/ At Work in Australia). Each unit is sent to the teacher (either by post, face-to- face or online), who corrects it and sends it back to the student. The student then contacts the teacher to discuss the unit and do speaking practice and some speaking assessment. All books are based on life in Australia. Individualised programs can be customised for students with specific needs. eg. Email etiquette at work, job interview preparation, report writing etc.
