Studying a foreign language benefits students in a number of ways,
contributes to the cultural, personal, educational and intellectual
development of the student.
It develops greater sensitivity to and
understanding of English and improves the student’s use of English.
It leads the student to recognise the worth of
all languages and cultures and thus develops a respect for and tolerance
of other people.
It provides more opportunities for employment,
especially in the fields of education, hospitality, tourism, commerce,
industry, trade, banking, the armed services, medical services, the public
service, the diplomatic service and the police service.
It has recreational benefits in that knowledge
of another language is useful when travelling overseas.
At Yeronga State High School we have a
number of students studying German, Vietnamese, Spanish, Arabic, and French. These subjects are offered off-line
either through tutorial lessons one afternoon a week or through the Brisbane
School of Distance Education (BSDE).
Please note: subjects studied through
the BSDE may attract a small annual fee.
Chinese language is studied across all year levels from 7 - 12.
