In a new article, the Higher Learning Commission says it wants to change the way people learn French, particularly in the wake of the Brexit vote.
The commission’s report, published today, also found a “disappointing” lack of French-language instruction for Australian students.
“The lack of language instruction for Australia’s first generation of young Australians may be one of the main reasons for the lack of interest in French-speaking French-speakers,” it says.
“However, this is also a problem of the broader system, where French-learning opportunities for students are often not available and students are left behind by parents and communities.”
