| || The New Colombo Plan continues to offer opportunities for Australian tertiary students to study in Asian countries with either short-term intensive courses or one-semester or one-year programs for a select few high achievers. |
It is hoped outstanding and gifted scholars like Lachlan Haycock of the University of the Sunshine Coast will in future deploy their intimate and deep knowledge of Indonesia and other Asian countries in careers for the benefit of Australia.
Coverage in local newspapers also sets a model for students from little towns like Nambour that anyone can make their mark if they persist and work hard. It also sends a much needed signal to the community that there are exciting opportunities and important careers following languages and culture studies.

Or is "the language app" a big beat up? and a con? as Kate Ellis implies. We've had primary school languages drives before and Australian languages education may be in a worse state than ever. If this app helps kids really learn languages in ways that will stick, motivate, be further built upon, hooray.

"Don't ever let anyone tell you that you're too young or you won't understand," Isabel says to other aspiring activists. "We're not telling you it's going to be easy. We're telling you it's going to be worth it."
