At Salisbury State School, Japanese is offered as our Languages curriculum. It is organised and planned using the Australian Curriculum and taught by a specialist, native speaking, Japanese teacher.
Our Languages program is designed to enable all students to learn Japanese in addition to English.
It is also for students to bring their own linguistic and cultural background to their learning, whether this is English, Japanese, or various combinations of languages.
All students engage in a Japanese lesson once a week with our Languages teacher. Prep to Year 2 student have a half hour lesson per week and older students have longer lessons, up to an hour a week.
