  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Hindi
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Modern Greek
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Turkish

You can provide feedback via an online survey, written submission or at a face-to-face consultation meeting from 4-6 pm at locations across NSW (see below). Please pre-register and bring an electronic or hard copy of the Draft K-10 Languages Framework, if you are attending a consultation meeting.

Completing Draft Languages K-10 Framework consultation meetings will contribute 2 hours of QTC Registered PD (addressing 6.2.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers) towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
