Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Fletcher.

By engaging with this subject, students develop the ability to communicate in Spanish and connect meaningfully with people in different communities around the world.

Languages and cultures play a key role in developing personal, community, national, and global identities. As our trade connections and cultural relations strengthen between Aotearoa and Latin America, this creates numerous career opportunities in industries such as agriculture and dairy farming, structural engineering, government, law, natural resource management, and many more global industries.

Through immersive cultural projects, students learn to communicate information, ideas and opinions in Spanish by reading, listening, writing, and speaking. They also gain an understanding of the ways in which the Spanish language is organised for different purposes. 

Entry Guidelines

The best preparation for this course is for learners to have completed Year 9 and 10 Spanish study or equivalent.
