ANU offers an outstanding variety of programs for Australia's next generation of language leaders, with more languages offered than at any other university in Australia. The ANU Bachelor of Languages is a wonderful way to take advantage of that, through the study of two (or more) languages, in combination with other areas of interest. The language education experience is designed to engage students with the structural, grammatical and idiomatic components of the chosen language or languages. This is further contextualised using cultural, social and historical concepts, issues and topics. Students can start at beginning level, or at higher levels if you have past experience. Exciting opportunities exist for students to immerse themselves in a chosen language and culture through study abroad, and to combine language study with a range of other areas.
