Reflections and advice from past HSC students

To support preparation for the HSC, this package includes videos with successful languages students and targeted questions for students and teachers to consider.

This resource supports both you and your students to reflect on:

  • the benefits of learning a language in Stage 6
  • effective techniques to prepare for the HSC.

The resource includes interviews with students, reflecting on why they chose to study a language, which strategies worked at home and in class, and which aspects they found challenging.

Through the reflection questions, students can identify and discuss effective language learning techniques.

You may like to work through this resource as a class, or have students watch the videos at home and then discuss during class time.
