Subject Description

Spanish

This single-semester course will be offered dependant on the number of enrolments. In senior secondary school, NCEA Levels 1-3 Spanish are to be offered by correspondence.

Over 80% of the world's population doesn't speak English as a native language.  Choose Spanish if you want to learn a language that is spoken as it is written and would like to be able to communicate with some of its 534 million speakers in 21 countries around the world!  

Transferable skills and the many cognitive benefits include: critical, creative thinking and problem solving, proofreading, public speaking, better literacy and listening skills, mental agility, social confidence, cultural empathy, adaptability, perseverance, and better memory retention.  

The Year 10 course enables students to become conversant in everyday Spanish scenarios.  Students revise describing oneself and others before learning how to describe physical states, people, places and things, say where things are, give and receive directions, go shopping, and use the telephone.

Engaging and practicable topics include food and drink, clothing, hobbies and pastimes, health and welfare.
