Taste of Languages

Senior students can experience a language and culture by taking part in a “Taste of” event which are run each year in February. The School of Languages and Cultures invites language students from year 12 to the campus to learn about studying their language of interest, view facilities and experience the University campus. Currently, students can have a “Taste of…” experience in Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
