There is a demand for learners to have a solid foundation in Languages to meet the needs of citizens in an international society and globalised world and contribute to intercultural competence. Languages are multi-faceted, including knowing, doing, thinking and communicating. Languages curiosity begins early in life, and as parents and teachers nurture this curiosity across the curriculum, they help shape and develop students skills to enable them to investigate in more complex ways into the communicating world in which they live. Teachers need to be able to demonstrate that Language and intercultural awareness are connected across different fields and to everyday life among younger and older people alike.

Pre-service teachers require a deeper focus in a particular subject, in addition to the general knowledge and teaching skills that are required across the range of curriculum areas. This course supports the development of additional depth of understanding in Languages as a curriculum specialisation. The focus of this course is designed to assess the language content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge, which are required for teachers to be equipped with a curriculum specialisation in Languages.
