Languages Other Than English

Our aim in the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) program is to lay the foundations for the study of foreign languages and to  gain an insight into other cultures. 

Classes in Chinese (Mandarin) begin in the second semester of Prep, with French introduced in Year 2.  Students then study one semester each year of Chinese and French, with both languages continuing from Year 2 onwards until Year 7 in Middle School when students decide which language they would like to continue. 

Chinese and French are taught by specialist teachers in the Junior School.
