How is the Australian Curriculum: Languages organised?

The Australian Curriculum: Languages for Chinese and Indonesian is available for use in states and territories. 

The Australian Curriculum states that:

Languages is organised through two interrelated strands:
  • communicating: using language for communicative purposes in interpreting, creating and exchanging meaning
  • understanding: analysing language and culture as a resource for interpreting and creating meaning.
The strands reflect three important aspects of language learning:
  • communication
  • analysis of aspects of language and culture
  • reflection.
