Learning a second language helps students to improve communication skills, understand the structure of their own language and become a tolerant citizen of the globe.
At St Gregory's College, the L.O.T.E. Department offers Italian from Year 8 to Year 10. Students can also study several other languages by correspondence through the Open High School in Years 11 and 12.
The aims of the LOTE faculty are to develop in our students a positive attitude to LOTE, respect for other cultures, confidence in using the language and a desire to learn about the target country. Students will also be able to participate in cultural activities and excursions related to the language learning.
Students develop skills in writing, speaking, reading and listening and engage in meaningful and authentic tasks incorporating ICT and latest learning technologies.
