Western Sydney University Major Code: M1014.1

Status: CONTINUING
This version of the specialisation is available only to continuing or completing students.

Available to students in other Western Sydney University Courses : YES, if the specialisation is available on your Home campus. Please ensure your course structure allows space for enrolment in the units in this unit set. Students must also meet any pre-requisite requirements. Consult your Course Advisor for further advice.


There are three entry levels into language majors. Beginner's level is for those with no previous study or minimal study of the language. Intermediate level is typically for students who: are non-native speakers with study of the language to HSC 2 Unit level or have a home background in the language but no comprehensive formal study, or who speak a non-standard variety (eg dialect). Post-Intermediate level is typically for students who are non-native speakers with substantial formal study and near-native competence; or are literate native speakers of a standard variety. Students should consult with the Languages staff regarding the progression sequence that best fits their level of skill. During the first two weeks of class, the lecturer will monitor the performance of students and advise students who need to transfer to a higher or lower class. Students may consult with the Languages Advisor, if they are unsure of their entry level. Also notice that students should avoid enrolling in units at different levels at the one time (eg: you should not enrol in Spanish 201 and 301 at the same time). Please check the current timetable as some units may not be offered every year. Advanced (Level 3) units may be offered on a rotational basis.
