Senior secondary aged students from across South Australia will have the opportunity to extend their language skills through a new holiday program focusing on building oral skills in Italian and Japanese.
Let’s Talk! is an intensive holiday program aimed at South Australian students enrolled in Stage 1 or Stage 2 continuers level Italian or Japanese language pathway.
The program will include engaging and highly interactive language and cultural experiences with the aim of improving students’ proficiency in Italian and Japanese.
The focus of all sessions will be on the oral use of Italian and Japanese, with groups capped at 12 students.
University students will also share their recent in-country experiences throughout the program and tertiary lecturers will provide information on university language pathways and future job opportunities for language learners.
In the July school holidays, the program will be expanded to French, Spanish, German, Indonesian and Chinese.
The program is one of a number of measures that form the Government’s Languages in Schools initiative to reinvigorate the study of languages in schools.
