2019 Languages for My Future

The MLTAWA invites Year 10 students and their teachers to attend the 2019 “Languages for My Future” forum and panel discussion. The aim of the event is to encourage and inspire students to continue with their language studies into the senior secondary years and beyond.

The main feature will be a panel discussion with current university students or recent graduates. The panel members will provide real-life examples of the highlights and challenges of their language learning journey, tips for success and an insight to the opportunities it has created.

Brief information from a range of tertiary institutions regarding language course offerings will be provided and the process for enrolling in a Year 11 Language course and the benefits of the Languages ATAR Bonus will be discussed.

With the kind support of UWA, we are able to run this event at no cost to students and schools. However, please note that this year the organising teacher must be a current MLTAWA member to participate.

Date: Thursday 30th May 2019

Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm

Venue: Social Sciences Lecture Theatre, UWA

Cost: Nil

To book for this event, please complete the registration form and return it by email to [email protected] by Friday 17th May 2019. To allow a range of schools to participate, the number of students from each school will be limited to 40.

Refreshments will not be provided, but teachers may like to encourage their students to bring a packed lunch to enjoy, after the forum, on one of the many lawns or you may take the opportunity to visit some of UWA’s eateries.

    What a wonderful opportunity – Unfortunately this fall on Year 10 examination week.

    • Hi Rose, what a shame. The forum is during mid-term break at UWA (which is generously hosting the event) and therefore the best time for them in terms of accessibility to the lecture theatre etc. we’ll see what can be done for 2020. If you want to share some of the event with your student last year’s panel discussion is on the MLTAWA YouTube channel

    Hi,

    This sounds remarkable, I am just wondering if a similar session could be held in regional areas?

    Hi Nadia,

    We have around 60 – 70 Yr 10 students each year. Will we be able to join this event somehow? (I am talking about next year onward.)

    • Hello Haruko, the MLTAWA reviews its schedule of events each year. Hopefully it will hold the forum again in 2020 and if so you will be able to register your students.
