L1 Spanish


COURSE TITLE:

Level 1 Spanish

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Learning another language is a great way to gain

access to the world of possibilities another culture

offers. We will bring the language and culture alive

through the use of a wide range of resources and

technology. You will be involved in pair and group

work. Traditionally this is a smaller class where you

are able to make excellent progress in Spanish. 

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

This course focuses on developing your proficiency
in Spanish language and improving your
understanding of other cultures. You will develop
the confidence to write, speak, listen and read
Spanish in a range of familiar situations and
settings.

WHAT SHOULD I HAVE DONE ALREADY?

You should preferably have completed a full year in

Spanish at Year 10. If you are highly motivated to

learn Spanish and have not taken the Year 10

course, you may be able to opt for Level 1 Spanish

with the approval of the Head of Department.
