Vietnamese

Resources

Curriculum area-specific resources have been developed to support teachers implementing the curriculum, organised by 'Help me plan' and 'Help me assess'.

Overview

Vietnamese is the official language of Vietnam. It is spoken by approximately 90 million people in Vietnam and approximately four million Vietnamese people living in other countries around the world, with the majority residing in the United States, Cambodia, France, Taiwan and Australia. Please refer to Learning in Vietnamese for further information.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 Vietnamese has two interrelated strands, Communicating and Understanding, which are further divided into sub-strands. The Vietnamese curriculum recognises that there are different entry points into language learning across F–10, which reflects current language teaching practice.

  • F–10 sequence for students who begin to learn the language in primary school and continue to Year 10.
  • 7–10 sequence for students who begin to learn the language in Year 7.

The Languages curriculum  can be viewed on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website

Please refer to the general frequently asked questions for Languages.

A PowerPoint presentation outlining the key components of the Victorian Curriculum F–10 Languages is available: Introducing Languages
