AusVELS provides a single curriculum for levels F-10 that incorporates the Australian Curriculum as it is progressively developed within a framework that reflects particular Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
The Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Languages is now available. The shape paper provides broad directions for the development of languages curriculum. Writing of languages curriculum will now commence, starting with F-10 Chinese and Italian and a Framework for Aboriginal languages and Torres Strait Islander languages.
VELS is no longer the current curriculum in use. For comparative purposes this site provides access to the former Curriculum Standards document outlining the two learning pathways for the LOTE domain. Pathway 1 contains six levels and the Pathway 2 consists of two levels. Standards are organised by dimension from Level 4 in Pathway 1 and Level 5 in Pathway 2.
Over 220 engaging interactive tasks and games and 190 printable worksheets that introduce, reinforce and recycle vocabulary. Activities are self-paced and self-correcting. They are presented in 35 topic-based sections, and include recordings by native speakers.
