5 YRS....

It proves that international students just don't go here. Or the ones here are pretty good at English that they don't need this supplementary subject.

But this subject is actually fun to learn for international students if they don't study any 3/4 in Y11 and want to have a rest besides the (sort of) intense study for other subjects. And when it comes to the mid year they can choose subjects easily (cuz only 5 left....)

However, this subject reduces the opportunity for learn other stuff. So... (I don't reckon anyone could see this post....)

First, let me warn you that I am not an international student. I am a local student who's just about to finish their year 12 exams. To answer your question about proving that international students who do not go here, this post pretty much sums it up.

Quote from: The Post Linked
FL board would be quiet as the majority of FL students would be international students, people who probably spend most of their time on Chinese websites/forums than here.

The same applies to all other boards as they tend to be more comfortable using forums related to VCE in their own languages (don't know if any is available in Chinese, which I judge to be your own respective language based on your previous posts).

But that doesn't mean that this forum would forever be like this: in fact if we can encourage more international students to contribute ATAR Notes, then may be a bigger resource base. The catch is that they should be posting in English regardless of their first languages (unless it's the languages forums).

To your second comment, I haven't done foundation English, so I actually don't know what's involved here. But telling by your comments, you may feel that you are not challenged/learning enough, and you want something more than foundation English. Your English doesn't seem too bad by my judgements here, so I think doing EAL would be better for you (which you are based on one of your posts).

In terms of "other stuff," please define "other stuff." I actually don't know what you mean. If you can't say it in English, feel send me a personal message. I will do my best to read the Chinese that you send, as I am only a Chinese as Second Language Student, so keep that in mind.
