The language department of The Gap State High School currently offers Chinese as an additional language in Years 7-12. We know that humans are wired to share stories and that language acquisition occurs through first listening, then speaking, reading and writing. 

In our Junior program, we engage students by immersing them in core language from the beginning of the program.  This helps them participate in their stories and accumulate language more readily. This extends in our Senior program that aims to create fluent, proficient and confident communicators.

By studying Chinese students will: 

  • develop a curiosity and understanding of other cultures

  • Open their minds and create opportunities for global understanding   

  • Practise kindness while learning new skills in unfamiliar contexts 

In Years 7-8 students study three semesters of Chinese.  It Years 9-12 students can elect to continue their language studies. 

For further information regarding the study of languages please refer to the Curriculum Handbooks.
