For a number of years now DE&T has made the teaching of a foreign language compulsory. Studying a Language is therefore compulsory for all students in Year 8.
Learning a Language is a valuable and worthwhile experience. Australia needs people with an understanding of other languages and cultures. Knowledge of another language may assist with employment in the expanding areas of Tourism, Trade and Teaching. Knowing another language makes an overseas trip even more special and enjoyable.
