Purpose

ELLA encourages a love of languages. Children who start learning languages early tend to stay interested in languages later in life.

Languages

There are nine different languages available to preschools in the ELLA program. These languages are Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Modern Greek, Japanese and Spanish. In 2019 and 2020, the Australian Government has committed to also support the development and implementation of apps in Korean, Vietnamese, Turkish and German. This will fully align the ELLA suite of languages to the languages in the Australian Curriculum, which children can study in later years.
