Learning German, Italian and Japanese
Learning German, Italian or Japanese at Alexandra Hills provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their understanding of the language studied and the communities that use it, while also assisting in the effective negotiation of experiences and meaning across other cultures and languages. Students participate in a range of interactions in which they exchange meaning, develop intercultural understanding and become active participants in understanding and constructing written, spoken and visual texts.
Students experience and evaluate a range of different text types; reorganise their thinking to accommodate other linguistic and intercultural knowledge and textual conventions; and create texts for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.
A course of study in either German, Italian or Japanese can establish a basis for further education and employment in many professions and industries, particularly those where the knowledge of an additional language and the intercultural understanding it encompasses could be of value, such as business, hospitality, law, science, technology, sociology, music, travel and education.
