We were pleased to partner with SBS in the fourth SBS National Languages Competition, which aims to inspire all Australians to embrace language learning and retention. The competition asked language students to answer the question: "How does learning a language make a world of difference to you?". Forty-four Aboriginal language learners entered, doubling last years’ count. We look forward to seeing that number double again in 2020.
