Testimonials

French

"Open High School was really beneficial to me as it provided extensive, useful resources and well-structured homework that made it easy to learn French. I had a wonderful teacher who not only dedicated so much time and effort to improve our French, but also gave an unbelievable amount of support, encouragement and advice that particularly helped me through the HSC year. The face-to-face classes were a highlight, enabling me to practice French with native speakers and gain new ideas and perspectives from people all over the state, which I believe is incredibly important for extension courses."
- Marine Salter, French extension 2011

Italian

"Studying Italian at Open High, languages, especially Italian has become my passion. I enjoy using the many study resources Open High provides to help with learning a second language. Thanks to the weekly phone lessons and regular Face to Face lessons, my ability to communicate in Italian has greatly improved."
- Bridget van Dantzig, Year 12

"My son Daniel has been attending Open High School to study Italian since January 2011. We find the teachers very helpful and supportive. If Daniel ever has any problems with his work the teachers are always there to talk to him, explain what should be done and work through any problems. Daniel enjoys his weekly phone lessons and considers that Open High School is a great way to learn Italian. Good on you all the teachers at Open High School."
- Robyn Quartullo (Daniel's mum, Year 10)

Japanese

"I would like to thank you for the past 2 years as my Distance Education teacher via Open High School. It has been a great experience. You and all other staff have been very helpful with my studies and I have taken more knowledge than just the Japanese Course. Although we have not met in person I believe you are a great person and a great teacher. ... It has been a pleasure to study through correspondance with you as my teacher."

"I just wanted to say thank you for teaching me this year. I learnt a lot of Japanese with your help and my parents and I appreciate it very much. Thank you for all the extra time you spent helping me and for the fun phone lessons. I received my Japanese grade today and I am very happy."

Chinese

"Learning a language at Open High School has provided me with an extremely gratifying experience. Thanks to the tremendous support and individualised instructions I've received, I'm becoming steadily more confident and comfortable in speaking, reading and writing Chinese. My teachers have provided me with insight, flexibility and guidance and as a result I'm thoroughly enjoying my studies here."
