The language extension course provides students with the opportunity to extend their ability to use and appreciate the language as a medium for communication and creative thought and expression.

The following Extension Units of Work are a guide of what students at the Secondary College of Languages will be expected to cover during the course.

A scope and sequence is a summary of what is to be taught, the sequence in which it will be taught and the syllabus outcomes that may be addressed in the intended learning.

Scope and sequences are flexible and fluid documents. They provide a brief overview of the key concepts and ideas addressed in a learning and teaching program for an individual stage or year.

Elements of a scope and sequence for secondary schools include:

  • title of each unit
  • sequence of each unit for the year/stage
  • duration of each unit
  • syllabus outcomes included in each unit (these are commonly represented by outcomes codes).
