LOTE

There are many benefits of learning other languages. Research has shown that multilingual people on average:

•               Have a greater cultural awareness

•               Are able to concentrate for 20% longer

•               Perform better in tests than students who only know one language

•               Are more resistant to Alzheimer's and Dementia

•               Have better memory and processing speeds

•               Are better at doing two things at once

•               Have a statistically significant increase in mathematical creativity

 

At Carole Park State School we have the privilege to teach our students Japanese.

Using the Australian Curriculum, students in years 5-6 learn Japanese Language & Culture, including:

  • Introduction to Japan & Introduction to Japanese (about self)
  • Describing Friends & Family
  • Food Around the World (Australia and Japan)
  • Shopping
  • Sports & Everyday Life
  • Housing – My Favourite Space
  • Travel in Japan
  • Hiragana – the Japanese Alphabet
  • Some high frequency Kanji such as:  Month, Day (date) and Days of the Week

In addition, younger students in years 3-4 have opportunity to learn some Japanese Language & Culture, in readiness for later years.

Students learn some of the following:

  • Greetings
  • Numbers (words and how to write in Kanji, use )
  • Colours
  • Hiragana (the Japanese Alphabet)
  • The Weather
  • Annual Events which are celebrated in Japan

 

We have recently started an Anime club that is becoming very popular as a social activity at our school.
