HSC hub

Languages

Due to the number of HSC language courses available and smaller candidature sizes, the HSC hub for Languages provides advice documents for each of the course levels.

Professional teacher associations, foreign government agencies and universities have provided support for many language courses.

For collegial discussions with other teachers and advice from the Languages and Culture team, please join our Languages NSW (7-12) virtual statewide staffroom on Yammer (department staff only).

We also have support available on the Stage 6 languages section of the department’s curriculum website, including:

  • practice speaking questions for most Beginners and Continuers courses
  • sample listening and reading activities for most Beginners and Continuers courses.
