Year 9 Spanish

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Derecourt

Year 9 Spanish introduces the language in its most basic form. No prior knowledge is needed as students will be gently guided through new content, gradually gaining confidence in the language.

The course covers oral, written and visual language strands with an emphasis on:
vocabulary development
basic grammar
familiar contexts such as greetings, food, birthdays, family and pets
the customs and culture of not only Spain, but also of Latin America, including history, art, architecture, cuisine and famous landmarks/buildings.

Where Does This Subject Lead?
Spanish is offered from Year 9 through to Year 13 (as of 2019) and is a university-approved subject. Spanish is the 3rd most spoken language in the world, so the possibilities for travel are countless.
