HSC course descriptions – Languages

The NSW Board of Studies offers 59 Stage 6 courses in 34 languages across four differentiated levels: Beginners, Continuers, Extension and Background Speakers. These are listed below. These courses cater for a wide range of languages to support second and subsequent language learning, as well as the maintenance of community languages. From 2011, four new Heritage Language courses (in Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese and Korean) will be introduced into Preliminary. These will be examined for the first time in the 2012 HSC.
