Stages 4 and 5
The study of 100 hours of one language over one continuous 12-month period is mandatory between Years 7-10, but preferably in Years 7-8 (Stage 4).
Students may also elect a language course in Stage 5.
In Stage 5, students extend their ability to communicate and strengthen their understanding of the nature of language, culture and the processes of communication.
K-10 language syllabuses and support documentation are available from the NSW Education Standards Authority K-10 Languages page.
The sample planning proforma (DOC 57KB) can be used to plan a languages unit of work for any Stage of learning K-10.
Using the right-hand menu on this page, you can view language-specific resources.
