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.

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
