Fifteen language teachers and six schools across South Australia have been awarded scholarship funding to enhance the teaching and learning of languages.
The scholarships, which form part of the State Government’s ‘Languages in Schools’ initiative, offer teachers the opportunity to take part in either a short language course in Australia or an in-country immersion, while also enabling schools to conduct in-country immersive study tours for students.
The scholarship recipients are from across the state and teach or study a variety of languages including Italian, Greek, Spanish, Indonesian, Japanese, German and Korean.
The program will offer up to 85 scholarships over four rounds.
The scholarships will give teachers and schools the opportunity to improve and reinvigorate the learning of languages in South Australian schools.
