At Korowa we provide a contemporary model of language learning in the context of current in-country experiences.
We realise that people from all walks of life must be able to negotiate experiences and meanings across languages and cultures.
We emphasise the importance of learning at least one language to Year 12 and strongly encourage the learning of two languages. Language learning is a challenging and rewarding experience which broadens students’ horizons and exposes them to personal, social, and employment opportunities in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
The languages offered at Korowa are Chinese, French, German and Japanese. Alternating Prep years study French or German until the end of Year 8 (2016 Prep students learn French and 2017 Prep students learn German).
Year 7 students study a European and an Asian language - either German and Japanese, or French and Chinese. (Year 7 students in 2016 will study German and Japanese and Year 7 students in 2017 will study French and Chinese)
Year 8 students continue learning the same two languages they commenced in Year 7.
In Year 9 students may elect to commence a second language that they have not previously studied whilst continuing to learn one of the languages from Year 8.
There are several exchange opportunities available to students to enhance their language studies.
