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.
At Model Farms High School, students will study either French or Japanese in Year 8 (Stage 4) for the compulsory course. They may then elect to continue with this language in Years 9 and 10 (Stage 5).
In Years 11 and 12, NSW schools offer a wide variety of languages, catering for beginning students to background speakers.
