This sub-major is designed for students wanting to learn a language through an in-country experience. Living in a foreign country, learning the formalities of the language, studying its society and culture, and interacting with the local people on a daily basis enables a student to develop confidence in the use of the language. Students will develop an appropriate level of proficiency in a second language that may be used for professional purposes such as teaching, business or international relations. Students undertaking this language specialisation will be able to use the language in question according to basic 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. This sub-major covers languages that are not taught at Western Sydney University and must be studied as part of an approved study abroad programme in the country where the language studied is one of the nominated national spoken and written languages.
