The Spanish language program is designed to provide students with communication skills in Spanish, including an understanding of the Spanish language itself and how Spanish culture interrelates with language in communication.
Students will have the opportunity to speak, listen, read and write Spanish in classes from Years 3-6, through songs, stories, practical tasks, role play of authentic situations, presentations and engagement with cultural activities from around the Spanish-speaking world.
As the world is becoming increasingly interconnected, the need to negotiate meanings across cultures and languages is becoming a necessity. Language learning not only offers opportunities for communication, but also an appreciation of diversity and beliefs. In addition, students develop an understanding of their own identity, culture and values. Language learning also strengthens thinking skills and may expand students’ horizons by providing social, personal and employment opportunities
