Arirang is back online!
Arirang was developed by the NSW Department of Education under the National Asian Language and Studies in Schools Program. It is for the first 100 to 200 hours of learning Korean in Years 7 to 10.
It was previously hosted on the Curriculum K-12 website, which was decommissioned last year. It is now available to all Korean teachers on the Korean section of the NSW Department of Education's new curriculum website.

Mr Soo Hwan Kang, Director Korean Education Centre of Consulate General of Republic of Korea in Sydney and Ms Lila Mularczyk, Director, Secondary Education signed the MoU, witnessed by Ms Noh Kyoung Kim, Chief of the Governors’ Association of Korea in the Korean Consulate General and Mrs Elisabeth Robertson, Coordinator, Languages and Culture.

Korean is a language of great importance in NSW public schools. The Korean Plant-A-School Program has enabled Korean language programs to be established and to grow in many schools, and the Korean Bilingual Program at Campsie Public Schools is one of the centrepieces of Korean language education in NSW.
This year, we have seen the introduction of the Stage 6 Korean Beginners course, which is an acknowledgement of Korean’s growing popularity.
The annual Korean Principals’ Study Tour also enables many principals to see the benefits of a Korean language program.
The NSW Department of Education looks forward to many more years working with the Korean Education Centre to support Korean language programs in NSW public schools.
