Official Notice: HSC Languages Beginners and Continuers examinations - Listening components
Teachers and students of the HSC Languages Beginners and Continuers courses are advised that, from 2014, the questions will no longer be read out in full prior to the reading of each text in the listening sections of the examination.
For example, the instructional voice over will only read out the following:
“Refer to Question 1.”
This will then be followed by a pause during which students may read the question before the first reading of the text.
Teachers of Year 12 students in these courses are requested to bring this to the attention of their students.
Further information on the examinations in these courses can be found at http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/syllabus_hsc/languages.html

By participating in Harmony Day activities, we can learn and understand how all Australians from diverse backgrounds equally belong to this nation and enrich it.
Celebrate with your language classes. There are classroom activities on the Harmony Day website at www.harmony.gov.au/
There are still 10 places available for HSC Beginners in April. The Continuers workshop is full.
As there are many Continuers students wanting to attend the workshop in the July holidays, the Centre will probably run 2 workshops for Continuers then, as well as a workshop for Extension. It might not be possible to also run a Beginners workshop at that time, so Beginners students are encouraged to join the workshop in April.
Application forms for the workshops in the July holidays will be available early in Term 2.
