Our languages program is designed to provide students with an immersive and engaging experience that prepares them for success in a globalized world.

The study of a language enables students to develop their skillset.

It enhances cultural understanding, allowing students to gain a deeper understanding of the culture and the history of the country in question. It opens students to new cultural perspectives, customs and ways of thinking. It broadens the mind and gives students a greater appreciation of the world around them.

Learning Japanese or Italian can boost creativity and help individuals to think outside the box.

Further study of Japanese/Italian beyond Year 9 opens cultural exchange experiences, travel and external scholarship opportunities.

Students are able to interact with native Japanese/ Italians through the Language Assistant Program.

Japanese

In Japanese, students develop cultural competency, literacy and analytical skills through exploring the nuances of the Japanese language and its reflection of Japanese culture.

Italian

In Italian, students develop skills to communicate in the target language, across all four dimensions of reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as an understanding of and respect for diversity and an openness to different perspectives.
