Subject information

This subject enables students to undertake the study of a target language that is not currently available through the Collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages (CCAFL) suite of languages.

Students should have some background and prior knowledge of the target language, and will have studied the target language for 400-500 hours by the time they have completed Stage 2, or have the equivalent level of knowledge.

They develop and apply linguistic and intercultural knowledge, understanding, and skills to interact and communicate appropriately and effectively in the language of study in a variety of contexts for a range of purposes and audiences.
