The Australian Curriculum: Languages is designed to enable all students in Australia to learn a language in addition to English. The Australian Curriculum: Languages recognises that students bring their own linguistic and cultural background to their learning, whether this is English or the target language or various combinations of languages. The organisation of the curriculum addresses learner background in the target language by providing a number of pathways and entry points of study to cater for background language learners, first language learners and second language learners.
The Australian Curriculum: Languages includes language-specific curricula for world languages and two frameworks. The Languages included are Arabic, Auslan, Chinese, The Framework for Aboriginal Languages and Torres Strait Islander Languages, The Framework for Classical Languages, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Modern Greek, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
