Languages at Carlingford High School

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.

At Carlingford  High School, all students study two languages in Year 7. In Year 8, students will study one language for the year. The school offers French and Japanese.

Students may choose to continue their language studies in Stage 5 (Years 9 and 10) and in Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12), where they may select from a range of courses.

Additional language courses may also be studied through the School of Languages and Secondary College of Languages.

The Languages faculty at Carlingford High School also offers a variety of lunchtime clubs that are open to all students, including the French Film Club and Anime Club.
