Parent attitudes towards Asian language learning in schools

In March-April 2015, AEF ran a survey on parent attitudes towards the learning of Asian languages in Australian schools. A total of 270 responses were received from parents and 240 responses were considered in scope for analysis. The following publication presents key findings and implications based on an analysis of the in-scope responses. The findings act as an indicative baseline of how parents – interested in issues around their child’s Asian language learning – view the learning of Asian languages in schools.
