Languages Extension and Background Speaker course prescriptions survey

BOSTES is currently inviting Languages’ teachers to complete a survey and nominate texts for the 2019 HSC Extension and Background Speaker courses.

If you attend a foreign language film festival and see a great movie or hear about a new novel that may be suitable let us know! The survey will remain open until May 2015.

The survey is part of BOSTES' regular 5 yearly review to determine new course prescriptions for each of the nine Extension courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Modern Greek and Spanish and the four Background Speaker courses in Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese and Korean.
