Entry Guidelines

The best preparation for this course is to study NCEA Level 2 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 effectively in a wide range of contexts, to express and justify their own ideas and opinions, and support or challenge those of others. Themes for this course include in-depth studies of Hispanic culture , the use of technology in our lives, future plans, unemployment and immigration, and the comparison of NZ lifestyle with Hispanic lifestyle.
