In NSW primary schools, the study of a language is optional.
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.
Two community language teachers provide instruction to native speakers in Greek and Vietnamese. The Community Language Program provides valuable support to ensure students retain their first language and allows the opportunity for other students to learn about another language and culture.
