Learning a second language is an integral part of developing global citizenship in an increasingly globalised world. Our Young Learners Language Program is designed to equip high school students with a deeper intercultural understanding and communicative abilities.
High School Students from Year 9 to Year 12 can now choose to study with LaPont from a range of Languages: French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Italian; which count to gain credits towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and International Baccalaureate (IB), if they have chosen a second language as one of their subjects.
Small Interactive classes are conducted daily from 4:15 pm at our new Brisbane CBD campus, by qualified native speaking teachers who have extensive experience with Language Exam Preparation for students in their senior phase of studies.

- International Baccalaureate program (IB).
The IB Diploma Program requires students to take a second language as one of their six subject groups.

The LaPont HSL Curriculum is mapped in line with the AC and CCAFL achievements standards. We offer exam preparation tuition to help High School students boost their exam results.
The lessons include tips on how to study effectively as well as specific exam preparation techniques; which will give a student between 4 and 8 credits towards their Queensland Certificate of Education. The LaPont YLP includes contemporary practices to complement the Australian Schools collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages (CCAFL)
Communicating: The ability to communicate effectively in another language while exchanging cultural references. Second language learning helps students to understand another culture and develop their communication skills.

- Enhance their future career opportunities and the ability to work or study abroad.
Assessment and entry requirements:
LaPont will assess students in accordance with internationally recognised Language proficiency tests
