A few of our members are currently supported by Writing Through Fences to study in the IELTS program. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. Our members who are studying with this program are attending classes physically or online to increase their English proficiency with the hope of gaining further education and improving their spoken and written English. This has many benefits especially for a future that has been stalled by Australia’s mandatory detention policies.
Of the IELTS course one of our writers says: “He, the teacher, asked shall I go use this english for abroad jobs. I said ‘No. I need to improve my english as the language to become a writer or a teacher’. The teacher laughed. He was happy. So was I”.
You can contribute to the fees for these courses through donating to Writing Through Fences and marking your donation IELTS.
