This subject builds knowledge about the nature of languages teaching in Australian classrooms and specifically how to teach the current (new) NSW K–10 Languages curriculum. The underpinning principles of languages teaching is explored to understand how students learn a second or other language and how to develop appropriate language learning programs for a variety of students in the classroom.
