& # 39; The racial gap is shameful & # 39 ;: Comedian Meshel Laurie says she is SICK of having to help Chinese students who don't speak English after returning to college to get her master's degree
- Comedian Meshel Laurie threw university services to international students
- She said that little support was offered to non-English-speaking Chinese students
- The 46-year-old claimed that native English speakers were forced to become weak
- She said she & # 39; unpaid teachers & # 39; had been teaching the foreign students
Comedian Meshel Laurie has destroyed Australian universities for forcing English-speaking students to & # 39; unpaid tutors & # 39; to become for their Chinese classmates.
Laurie went to universities because she did not offer enough services to international students to make sure they understood the course material.
She claimed that native English speakers would be deliberately grouped with the students and that it would be their responsibility to inform them.

& # 39; It's a handy trick: group evaluation (with groups assigned by instructors) in courses full of paying, non-English speaking students means that English speakers catch the burden of others, translate the course content for them and help them pass, & # 39 she wrote Sydney Morning Herald.
Laurie is a mother of two, television presenter and co-host of popular True Crime podcast.
The 46-year-old revealed that she had decided to press a Masters of Media into her busy schedule, but discovered that she did much more than she had registered for just five weeks after her studies.
& # 39; I spent time in each class to assist non-English-speaking students to understand the lesson and complete the assigned task, & # 39; she wrote.
Laurie said she immediately found the & # 39; shameful & # 39; racial gap between Chinese and Australian students in the classroom.

She said that instructors held regular group discussions in the classroom where Chinese students with poor English skills often helped other international students.
Laurie claimed that when it was time to group evaluations, students were forced to act as teachers.
If the non-English-speaking students did not understand the material, they risk lowering the group mark.
An excited Laurie said she sent an email to the university to complain about the & # 39; language gap group review rodeo & # 39 ;.
Laurie said she described herself as a & # 39; multiculturalist traditionally & # 39; and had no problems with international students who came to Australia to learn.
But she said that if those students spend a lot of money on an education, they deserve to get adequate services.
& # 39; I don't need everyone to speak English when they arrive here, but if you want to accept their money and can't, can you at least give them the support they need? & # 39;

Recent statistics from the Center for Independent Studies found that 11 percent of all students at Australian universities were Chinese.
The figure was well above eight percent in New Zealand and three percent in Canada.
There were 177,745 Chinese students enrolled at Australian universities in 2019, against 121,881 in 2016.
It is estimated that international students make up 25 percent of all students in Australia. The figure has almost doubled since 2008.
Chinese students alone generated $ 11 billion in college income in 2018.
Indian students followed $ 3.8 billion while Nepalese students brought in $ 1.6 billion.
