The Japanese: First Language ATAR course is designed for students with a cultural and linguistic background in Japanese. The course focuses on the interrelationship of language and culture, and further enhances the skills students possess to function in an increasingly globalised society and a culturally and linguistically diverse local community. Through engagement with the Japanese-speaking communities, locally and overseas, and through the study of contemporary texts, themes and issues, students strengthen their literacy skills in both the Japanese and English languages.Syllabus Support Materials
