Studying in Australia: what is the teaching method of Australian schools?

The teaching method of Australian teachers is very different from the Italian one and looks more like the American one. Australian school students not only learn from the classroom lessons given by their teachers, but also perform numerous projects and research, group work, e-learning and interactive classroom lessons.

The verifications are not only written or oral as in Italy: in fact, in Australia the method of group work with Power Point presentations, individual research projects is preferred. Obviously, these methods are also accompanied by the more traditional classroom tests.

But do not worry! This is why we at LAE will help you in your choice and give you all the information you need. We have numerous partnerships with all public high schools in Australia, so you’ll be spoiled for choice!
