Want to study a language as part of your study abroad program?

English language tuition is included in your study abroad program with South Australian Government Schools, but what if you want to study a language other than English as well?

Many South Australian government schools offer a range of language choices as part of the curriculum. If the language of your choice is not available at your school, you have the option of studying it after hours with the School of Languages.

The School of Languages in Adelaide, South Australia makes it possible for you to study a language of your choice, and to have it formally recognised as a part of your secondary education.


What language should I choose to study?

Many international students studying abroad with South Australian Government Schools choose to study their own background language particularly in Years 11 and 12, however, some students choose to study a new language as a beginner or continue their studies of a language they have commenced in their home country.

Whether you are a background speaker, beginner or continuer, all you have to do is decide on which language you would like to study!
