DescriptionLearning a language expands students’ prospects in relation to developing their personal, social, cultural and employment opportunities. Our Japanese programme expands students’ capability to communicate and develop intercultural understandings that will enable them to develop as global citizens. Through languages, students develop vital cognitive skills in problem solving, critical thinking, memorising, concentration and mental flexibility.
Subject OutcomesStudents have discovered and explored Japan, now they will journey to Japan. On this journey, students will use their knowledge of previously learned concepts in unfamiliar contexts, which will enable them to become confident users of Japanese. Students will expand their understanding around the themes of themselves as an individual, the changing world and Japanese speaking communities. The focus is around students developing as life long language users and reflective global citizens.
