Language specialisations aim to enable students to develop an appropriate level of proficiency in a second language which may be used for professional purposes such as teaching, interpreting and translation, business or international relations. Students undertaking a language specialisation will be able to use the language in question according to its grammatical and pragmatic principles, communicate with native speakers appropriately in the spoken as well as the written mode and demonstrate an understanding of the cultures and societies associated with the language.

Sub-major Structure

Inherent Requirements

There are three entry levels into language sub-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. 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 the language. 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 Course Advisor, if they are unsure of their entry level. Students should avoid enrolling in units at different levels at the one time (e.g. you should not enrol in Arabic 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.

A sub-major in Japanese is any sequence of 40 credit points with no more than 20 credit points at Level 1.

Students should take units that reflect their level of competence in the language and they should not backtrack, i.e. they must not:

- take a Level 1 unit after passing a Level 2 unit in the same language; or

- take a Level 2 unit after passing a Level 3 unit in the same language
