The Japanese Language Program at Winthrop involves students from Year 1 to Year 6. Students participate in a weekly Japanese language instruction lesson. Following the WA Languages Curriculum, our focus areas are organised into two interrelated strands of Communicating and Understanding. Songs, chants, creative and mnemonic stories are used to help our students retain the language content covered each semester. Students’ learning experiences and intercultural understanding are also enriched as we meet each week for lesson in the dedicated Japanese classroom.
