Asian languages in South Australian Government Schools

South Australia is a dynamic multicultural state in which English is the official language. The social, cultural, community and economic vitality of our State, however, draws upon the wide variety of languages spoken in our local communities including Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese.

The following Adelaide metropolitan and South Australian regional schools offer a variety of Asian languages to students from Years 8 – 12. One of these schools, Adelaide High School, also offers a Special Interest Program in Languages. If you want to study an Asian language not available at your school, all Adelaide metropolitan high schools can offer (by negotiation) the language at The School of Languages. The School of Languages is a specialist government school offering many languages including Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean and Indonesian in after school hour classes.
