Some extra fun and functionality will enhance the experience of learning a language next year, with the refreshed My Languages Journey Passport.
Language teachers can issue the passport to Prep students learning 8 of the most widely taught languages in Victorian government schools:
The passport includes features such as ‘I CAN’ statements to identify what students are working towards in the language, and scales to record their confidence levels.
Students starting in Prep can use the passport to document their language learning journey over their first 4 years of school.
The passport will record each student’s progress in language learning and help them to:
- learn words and phrases to communicate in the target language in the classroom and beyond
- develop literacy strategies they can use in language learning
- value and build on other languages they know.
The passports will enable language teachers to assess and monitor student achievement and plan learning opportunities.
The passports will help generalist teachers to identify language they can use with students in classrooms to consolidate learning every day, increasing frequency of engagement with the language.
Families and school communities will find the passports a simple and helpful way to understand student progress and achievement in languages and literacy learning.
Refer to the My Languages Journey Passport Teacher Guide for tips on getting the most out of the passport.
