In the spirit of internationalism, language is considered an integral part of a boy's education at Scotch. The emphasis is on reading, writing, listening and speaking skills to ensure that students become good communicators in their second language and acquire deeper understanding of the culture of the second language. Boys are encouraged to use their language skills in a communicative way at every opportunity.
French is taught from Years 1 to 5 as part of the Primary Years Programme to develop an appreciation of another culture. The language programme is linked to the overall classroom programme and the units of inquiry.
French and Indonesian are taught in the Middle School Years 6 and 7 and in the Senior School Years 8, 9 and 10 as part of the Middle Years Programme to develop an appreciation of another culture.
French and Indonesian are offered in the Senior School WACE and IB Diploma Programmes and Spanish ab initio is offered as an additional language for IB Diploma students if they have no prior learning in Spanish.
