A first step towards a better environment for Australia's Korean language education
Korean Studies at UNSW Arts & Social Sciences have received a grant to strengthen Korean language education at schools
The project will consolidate the pathways for Korean language education in Australia, and address sectoral and regional imbalances by:
- devising national strategies that will improve the presence of Korean at secondary schools
- holding a national strategic conference in conjunction with the release of the National Curriculum
- designing and executing a visitation program to Korea to engage and inform secondary school principals and officers from the Department of Education and Curriculum Authorities of the relevance of Korea to future Australian citizens
The project is supported by the Commonwealth through the Australia-Korea Foundation, which is part of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
