Learning a language is fun and exciting. It also has tremendous benefits for young people at school and in life. According to research, the best time to start speaking a second language is early in life, and at Safety Bay Senior High School, we provide this opportunity for students in Years 7 and 8. In these years, it is compulsory for students to study either German or Indonesian. From Year 9, students are encouraged to continue learning a second language by continuing in the subject as one of their electives.
The Importance of Learning a Second Language
German and Indonesian Second Language Courses
Language courses are aimed at students for whom the language is a second (or subsequent) language.
Students will study various basic languages on everyday topics and learn about daily life, customs and traditions in the target countries. They will make comparisons between those countries and their own. The situational language they learn could help them communicate better in the language of the countries of their studies.
Students will engage in listening, speaking, reading, viewing and writing activities to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the language.
