ABOUT US


The School of Languages is a government school which specialises in languages education. Since its establishment in 1986, this unique South Australian school has supported thousands of students to pursue their interest in languages learning and to experience the joy of embracing another culture.


The school was initially founded as a secondary school for students from all three sectors. In 2000 the school introduced its first classes for students from Reception to Year 7. Since then our primary classes have continued to grow in popularity and demand.


Choosing to Learn a Language


Studying another language offers many rewards, including:


○ being able to communicate, interact and negotiate within and across languages and cultures

○ understanding one’s own and others’ languages, thus improving literacy skills, including in English

○ understanding selves and others, and the diverse ways of knowing, being and doing

○ further developing cognitive skills through thinking critically and analytically, solving problems, and making connections in learning

○ becoming more competitive in the global market.


Our Mission


The School of Languages aims to enhance access, choice and continuity in language learning for South Australian learners, through the provision of quality programs in a broad range of languages R-12, that complement and supplement languages programs offered in mainstream schools and ethnic schools.

It seems like a good place I checked the website but it turns out they don’t have the laungauge I want (Swedish) so it would be good if you guys over there would add Swedish to your circulum thank you ;)

I've heard so many good things about this school, but unfortunately it doesn't have the language I'm looking for: Swedish. I think others have requested this language in the past.
