This subject explores the way language learning and teaching policies are designed globally. The educational contexts discussed in this subject include K-12 education in Australia and globally, target languages taught in the countries where they are spoken as the first or additional language, other models of English and other languages taught outside the school systems and the teaching of Heritage and Indigenous languages. Geographically, the first part of the subject focuses on languages learnt in Australia, the curricula for teaching of English as an Additional language or Dialect and of other languages in Australian states and territories. The second part of the subject takes the discussion on K-12 and other models overseas and examines different curricula and language policies in various parts of the world. The subject equips students with an insight into fascinating and complex matters of language planning, language policy and educating young learners.
