About Australia

4. What have you learnt about today's migration policies? How have they changed since World War Two?

5. What have you learnt about multiculturalism? How much of a difference did it make to have this policy in place in Australia, firstly, to Australia and, secondly, to potential migrants? Why?

6. Has your view of Australia changed in anyway now that you have seen it through the eyes of an outsider?

7. Do you agree or disagree with the images put forward by the Department of Immigration? Do they all apply equally to all of Australia? Is it an honest assessment of Australia and Australians?

You are to be congratulated, however, on getting through this task. You have shown that you have good ICT skills, can research on the internet, accept guidance and recommendations as to what you should be doing and, above all, you are being an active participant in the civics and citizenship of Australia. Well done!

Oh! By the way! What did you find out about the need to be English speaking/writing to be a successful applicant to move to Australia?
