Languages

Language studies at Sacred Heart provide students with the opportunity to broaden their understanding of other cultures and to develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Areas of study include basic conversation, self and family, daily activities, food, customs and culture.  

In Year 7 students have the opportunity to experience a semester of both Japanese and French. In Year 8 students elect to continue with one of the two languages, which they can continue through to Year 10 and beyond. A study tour of Japan is offered every two years for students studying Japanese in Year 9 or 10.
