Australian Languages

The study of Australian Languages offers students opportunities to learn about the languages and cultures of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia.

Students learn about the current status of Indigenous languages in Australia and the circumstances under which they have become endangered or extinct. Students also learn about the linguistic structure of these languages.

They explore and develop an appreciation of the value of Australian languages as storehouses of cultural and social knowledge and ways of thinking for the Indigenous communities who speak and identify with them.
