Languages and Cultural Programs

Ciao! Konnichiwa! Gleeson College offers two languages: Japanese and Italian. Languages are compulsory for students in Years 7-9 and become an elective subject from Years 10-12.

Our Language teachers possess the necessary skills and content knowledge to ensure your child has a relevant, contemporary learning experience, enabling them to participate in a changing global society. Students studying a language have the opportunity to be involved in a range of excursions and activities as well as overseas Study Tours to Japan. Studying a language in today's global society has numerous benefits including improved first language, better job prospects, improved understanding of cultures and the changing world, improved brain function and better travel opportunities.
