NCEA Level 3 Spanish
Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Currie.
The Year 13 Spanish course is designed to follow and expand upon Year 12. The skills Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing will continue to be developed and assessed through a theme-based approach as set out in the New Zealand Spanish Curriculum.
At this level, oral and written confidence and accuracy, cultural awareness and depth of thinking become evident in students’ work. Students are capable of discussing more complex issues in thematic studies such as immigration and racism, Spanish fiestas and technology and they will, for the first time, be exposed to Hispanic literature and film as part of the course.
There is a strong emphasis on expanding vocabulary and grammar so that students are able to use more fluent Spanish and to discuss topical issues relevant to the world today.
