Imagine being able to communicate in a different language! Bundaberg State High School offers exciting programs in German and Japanese, where students learn how to speak, read, write and understand their chosen language. The courses offer a variety of language, inter-cultural and cultural activities.
First and foremost, learning a language enables students to interact with others. They learn and practise how to organise their ideas, to select the appropriate words and tone, to look and listen to the response and to express their ideas and feelings. The communicative approach to learning LOTE (Languages Other Than English) ensures that meaningful communication such as asking for, getting and giving directions is the focus of classroom learning. Teachers also use the target language as much as possible, to give students the maximum opportunity to hear the language used in everyday communication.
