New Arrivals

At Teachers Beyond Borders, we are dedicated to providing resources to support students who are new to Australia or who are learning English as an Additional Language or Dialect. Our resources include links and downloadable materials such as word banks, worksheets, activities, assessments, and other tailored materials designed to address the specific needs of these students, helping them build confidence as they become more proficient in English.

In this 'New Arrivals' section, you will find resources that support second language English learners' transition from BICS (Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills), also known as conversational fluency, to CALP (Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency), which encompasses the oral and written language skills needed to use English to access the Key Learning Areas across the curriculum. Click here to find out more about BICS & CALP
