Queensland Education announces new languages policy - Languages to be taught from Years 5-8 from 2015
See these news articles and interviews with our President Cynthia Dodd.
“Languages teachers are more than language teachers; they understand the significant changes in the structure of the economic, political and social systems of other cultures. This specialised knowledge can make a tremendous contribution to History, Geography, English literature studies. Languages teachers can add to discussions about the different ways particular cultures understand the ethics of science, for example”.
Beryl Exley (PhD), Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology, comes out in support of Primary Languages.
