Ethnic schools are non-profit, language and culture centres that are available to anyone.
About 100 ethnic schools in South Australia teach a total of 49 languages after hours. They provide a minimum two hours of lessons each week to:
- teach language skills
- maintain the various cultures of Australian communities
- promote cultural understanding and harmony.
Students are generally of school age, however, a number of ethnic schools also provide lessons for preschoolers and adults.
To enrol in an ethnic school, contact the school directly. The list of ethnic schools in South Australia shows the languages taught and gives contact details for courses. For more information contact The Ethnic Schools Association of SA Inc on phone 8301 4814.
