Year 10 Spanish

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. Through Spanish, students build an in-depth understanding of the world around them and become global citizens. As our trade connections and cultural relations strengthen between Aotearoa and Latin America, this creates numerous career opportunities in industries such as international relations, agriculture, healthcare, structural engineering, natural resource management, and many more global industries.

This full year course incorporates immersive, cultural projects to build on the basic foundations of Year 9 Spanish and develop readiness for NCEA in Year 11. Students learn to express and respond to their personal needs and interests in a variety of situations across a range of interesting topics in Spanish.
