JCU Academy of Modern Languages
Interested in travelling or working overseas? Fascinated by other languages and cultures?
If so, enrol in a Short Language Course offered by the JCU Academy of Modern Languages (AML). AML provides a relaxed environment where adults and students in Year 10, 11 and 12 can learn a new skill with the support of qualified and enthusiastic JCU language tutors.
Language not only deepens our sense of place and culture, but it is a valuable skill that can apply to many areas of life. Enhance your employability with the ability to translate and communicate in another language; your career options could extend overseas. You can also enrich your life by expanding your community and making meaningful connections with people from different cultural backgrounds. Your language skills could lead you to learn about cultural knowledges, foods and even trades.
The AML has designed this course with supported learning as a priority and enthusiasm at its core. Rather than sitting for exams and writing assignments, your studies are highly collaborative and interactive. You’ll learn your chosen language through casual lessons that are oriented around supporting you and your peers to develop conversational and literacy skills.
You can learn Chinese (Mandarin), French, Japanese or Spanish through this modern language short course. Elementary courses are perfect for beginners to enter a new language and Intermediate courses are ideal for those with prior knowledge to improve their abilities and develop practical language skills.
