The continuers level languages are designed for students who have studied the language for 400 to 500 hours by the time they have completed Stage 2, or who have an equivalent level of knowledge. Students interact with others to share information, ideas, opinions and experiences.

They create texts in Japanese to express information, feelings, ideas and opinions. They analyse texts to interpret meaning, and examine relationships between language, culture and identity, and reflect on the ways in which culture influences communication.

From 2021, eligibility guidelines will apply to this subject.
