Our aim is that our students learn to express themselves and converse in Spanish. There are over 500 million Spanish speakers in the World and the language will continue to be of global significance throughout this century. There are many benefits to studying a foreign language which include;
Enjoyment and increased self confidence that comes from remembering new language.
Reinforcement of language structure and terms studied in English.
Broadening your vocabulary when speaking and writing English.
Improved employability and career prospects.
Greater opportunities for travel.
Understanding of other countries, cultures and customs.
Spanish lessons will focus on developing speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will include a variety of activities such as imitating the teacher’s pronunciation and intonation, word games, watching video clips of native speakers, written drills and speaking tasks in pairs and small groups. Homework will be set on a weekly basis. Students will have a booklet covering each half term’s work. One of the best ways families can support their children’s learning is to test them on the vocabulary lists contained in these booklets
