In NSW high schools, languages is a key learning area.
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.
In Years 11 and 12, NSW schools offer a wide variety of languages, catering for beginning students to background speakers.
Students learn the basics of speaking and writing French by listening to and reading French in authentic situations and through a variety of games and activities including songs. Students also learn some of the customs and culture of France through a selection of media and class discussions and projects in which differences and commonalities with Australian culture are highlighted.
