Languages

In NSW high schools, languages is a key learning area.

Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.

The study of a language is compulsory for 100 hours in one continuous school year from Year 7 to Year 10, but preferably in Years 7 or 8.

In Years 11 and 12, NSW schools offer a wide variety of languages, catering for beginning students to background speakers.

Japanese

Pendle Hill High School offers students the opportunity to study Japanese language and culture. Classes are interactive and often include hands on activities. Below are some photos from our Japanese classes, where they learned about calligraphy, sushi making and much more.
