Language no longer a barrier for Sultan 

Afghan refugee Sultan Hussain had never set foot inside a classroom before embarking on a mission to learn English at South Regional TAFE.

Sultan had to learn to read and write, a task made more difficult because he had not had an education in his home country, which meant he even had to learn about the basics of how a classroom operated.

Sultan arrived in Australia 12 years ago in an attempt to start a new life and soon found that his inability to speak English was a barrier to complete participation in Australian life and employment.

“If you cannot read and write English, you cannot get a job,” Sultan said.

Sultan studied a preliminary course followed by Certificates I and II in Spoken and Written English and has developed his English to the level where he has been able to find steady employment. Sultan is employed by the Community Living Association as a support worker, caring for people with disability.

“I love my job, I can help others,” he said.

Being able to work and receive a regular income means Sultan can provide for his family and make a genuine contribution to Australian society.

“The course helped me so much, I am proud of my achievements,” he said.

Sultan hopes his developing English will soon allow him to apply for Australian citizenship.
