Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.

The study of a language is compulsory for 100 hours in one continuous school year from Year 7 to Year 10, but preferably in Years 7 or 8.

Learning languages opens minds to difference where diversity is seen as a regular part of society. Proficiency in languages provides a national resource that encourages more effective engagement with the global community. The study of Languages fosters intellectual and emotional development, and cultural awareness.
