LOTE – Japanese
Japanese is taught at Monbulk Primary School from Foundation to Grade 6. Students cover language and culture in weekly lessons, focusing on all four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. The students enjoy learning the new alphabets and vocabulary and reinforce this knowledge regularly. Mnemonics are used for learning hiragana along with songs and movement to provide visual and aural clues.
Our annual Japanese Day immerses students into the culture and displays their proficiency and growing confidence. The community enjoys the whole school assembly and sharing the display from students, with a range from songs to oral presentations to artworks.
