00:04 [Narrator speaking] Welcome to the Saturday School of

00:06 Community Languages

00:09 the Saturday School of Community

00:11 Languages provide students from years

00:13 seven to twelve the opportunity to study

00:16 their background community language

00:17 where it is not available at their day

00:20 school. Our students join two or three

00:24 hour classes each week to develop and

00:27 enhance their knowledge and

00:28 understanding of their background

00:30 community language. The Saturday School

00:35 of Community Languages has a history of

00:37 outstanding results at the Higher School

00:39 Certificate examinations with the

00:44 support of our experienced and

00:45 professional staff, students are

00:47 challenged to achieve their best.

00:50 Information and communication

00:53 technologies are being used to enhance

00:55 learning with experiences that are

00:57 interactive and cater for different

00:59 learning needs. Innovative use of

01:03 technologies give students opportunities

01:05 to access otherwise unavailable courses.

01:08 At the Saturday school a number of

01:10 courses are offered across sites to

01:12 senior students using connected

01:15 classrooms facilities. By studying at the

01:18 Saturday School of Community Languages

01:20 students not only enhance their

01:22 background community language but also

01:24 develop a stronger connection with their

01:27 heritage and cultural identity. [First student speaking] I like

01:30 coming to Saturday School of Community

01:32 Languages because it's a great learning

01:33 environment. The teachers are very

01:36 professional and it gives me the

01:37 opportunity to not only hang out with

01:39 people from my own language but other

01:42 languages as well. It's all one community

01:44 so I enjoy it a lot. [Second student speaking] I gotta stay at

01:47 school so I can learn a language from

01:49 that's from my own background like for me

01:51 Korean it's very good because you get

01:53 more opportunities in the future. But

01:55 then coming here you can also learn

01:57 about your culture and heritage and not

01:59 just your language. [Narrator speaking] The Saturday School

02:01 of Community Languages is open to

02:03 students enrolled in a high school or

02:06 College who have a background in the

02:08 community language they wish to study

02:09 where their mainstream school does not

02:12 offer it.
