Learn about the world from a different point of view
Learning an additional language develops skills for the future and skills that will last a lifetime. The skills gained are considered so important, that all students in Western Australia are now required to study a language other than English (LOTE) from Year 3 to Year 9.
There are many benefits to learning another language. It can help steer a career, provide a means to interact socially, facilitate travel or become a hobby. It also ensures students broaden their understanding of different cultures in an increasingly globalised, multicultural society.
Students will learn how to communicate in the LOTE and develop a better understanding of English.
They will learn about other cultures and improve their self esteem through learning opportunities such as:
- Excursions and incursions
- Reciprocal exchange programs
- Local and national competitions
- Guest native speakers in classes
- Increasing use of technology to expose students to a variety of authentic language material.
Programs We Offer
Studying a LOTE promotes effective learning across all subject areas by developing literacy skills necessary to communicate, analyse and use language more effectively.
Students in Years 7-10 are required to study a LOTE with a choice of
Chinese, Italian or Japanese.
In Years 11-12 students have the option to continue developing their skills in their chosen language. Students sitting the WACE exam in a LOTE are eligible for the University Entrance LOTE Bonus.
