In an increasingly connected world, there has never been a better time (or better institution) to learn a language than here at ANU. Dr Shunichi Ishihara, Director of Languages at the ANU College of Asia & the Pacific, explains the academic and professional benefits of 'leveling-up' with a language in this presentation.

With more than a dozen Asia-Pacific languages (including several not taught by any other Australian university), ANU offers unrivalled choice and expertise when it comes to giving students a high level of language fluency and cultural literacy. Our language students are also encouraged to take advantage of our funded in-country learning opportunities that offer an authentic, immersive experience.

Joining Dr Ishihara will be Grazia Scotellaro, Deputy Manager of Digital Learning. Grazia will introduce the College’s innovative online learning model used to teach a staggering nine Asia-Pacific languages.

There are many ways to study an Asia-Pacific language at ANU. It can be incorporated as a major, minor, advanced minor or even postgraduate specialisation, depending on your degree and study goals. An increasing number of our languages are also taught entirely online in partnership with Open Universities Australia, making them available to anyone anywhere!

Whether you’re keen to build your existing proficiency or ready to start a new language-learning adventure, this session provides a clear pathway for your next steps.
