Level 1 Spanish
Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Derecourt
Year 11 Spanish focuses very much on the language skills needed to survive and thrive in a Spanish-speaking culture. Students will learn to communicate their own personal responses and have the opportunity to accumulate vocabulary on topics of most interest to them. Students will learn and use language of most immediate relevance to them, such as their daily routines, family, past events and future plans, how they spend their free time, eating out and making purchases.
The credits on offer are well-balanced between internal and external standards and across the four main language disciplines of reading, writing, speaking and listening; in Year 11 we also incorporate the skills of viewing and performing.
Learning a language has many benefits, including improved communication skills, travel opportunities, employment prospects and the ability to enjoy a whole new world of information and entertainment through books, movies, songs and websites.
Year 11 Spanish can lead all the way through to Year 13 where it is a University approved subject.
