In NSW high schools, languages is a key learning area.

Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.

The study of a language is compulsory for 100 hours in one continuous school year from Year 7 to Year 10, but preferably in Years 7 or 8.

In Years 11 and 12, NSW schools offer a wide variety of languages, catering for beginning students to background speakers.


LOTE at Narromine High School

At Narromine High School, our Year 8 students are currently learning Wiradjuri, our local Aboriginal language.

Students work closely with a LOTE Coordinator who works with Narromine High and surrounding schools to teach students about the Wiradjuri langauge and culture.
