Here at Bonnyrigg High School, Languages encompasses the learning of Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. Our vision is for our students to be competant in the reading and writing of the languages. Language studies is the study of every aspect of language, including vocabulary, grammar, the sound of language, and how words evolve over time.

The Department of Education states:

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.
