Level 2 Spanish

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Fletcher.

Entry Guidelines

The best preparation for this course is to study NCEA Level 1 or equivalent in Spanish. Entry without meeting this can be discussed with the Teacher in Charge or Head of Faculty

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, social services, natural resource management, and many more global industries.

Students learn to use Spanish to communicate their ideas and opinions on a variety of themes related to young people in New Zealand and Hispanic culture. Themes explored at this level deal with young people relating to others, their health, facing teenage issues such as use of technology and considering their future options, environment and Hispanic traditions.




Level 3 Spanish

Spanish is such a widely spoken language that it will complement any other subjects students may choose to study. Employers value students who have studied other languages for their open mindedness, ability to open themselves up to the unknown and their empathy with other peoples and cultures.
