Aims of Course

Description of the Course

Students study relevant topics including family, leisure, holidays, education, future plans and language in work situations through Listening, Talking, Reading and Writing. ICT skills are improved as pupils use a variety of resources including digitalised recording systems, various ICT programmes and video devices. Assessment is carried out through a combination of formal assessments and continuous teacher observation.

Learners will reflect on how they have acquired and learned their first language and how this can assist them in Spanish. Throughout the course of the year they will interact with others in real-life situations, talk about topics of personal interest and deliver presentations in their new language. They will also work in individual, paired and group situations, and establish and maintain contact with Spanish speakers.

Students should only select Spanish as a second Modern Language if they have been recommended to do so by their Modern Languages teacher.
