Learning requirements

The learning requirements summarise the knowledge, skills, and understanding that students are expected to develop and demonstrate through their learning in Stage 1 Australian Languages — Revival Language.

In this subject, students are expected to:

  1. communicate using [Revival Language]
  2. understand and explain features of language structures and cultural knowledge of one or more Australian Languages
  3. explore and understand the context of the revival of [Revival Language]
  4. reflect on own learning from and with Aboriginal people and language resources
  5. reflect on the relationship between the revival of [Revival Language] and processes of cultural renewal and reconciliation.

The history of Australian Languages means that written materials in or about a language being studied may not be extensive. Students are encouraged to use and engage with as wide a range of resources as possible. Resources include, but are not limited to:

  • spoken materials, such as talks, conversations, and interviews, whether filmed, recorded, transcribed, or experienced personally
  • written materials, such as books, articles, diaries, letters, and administrative records
  • artwork, music, songs, and other creative materials
  • online materials.
