English as an Additional Language or Dialect for Aboriginal Students

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students live in metropolitan, rural and remote areas of Western Australia. These students may speak one or more indigenous language, Kriol, and/or dialect of English called Aboriginal English. For many Aboriginal students their first contact with Standard Australian English (SAE) will be when they begin school. A variety of resources to support Aboriginal students learning SAE can be viewed below.
