NCEA Level 1 Spanish

11SPN
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Moreno

Year 11 Spanish is an extension and consolidation of Years 9 and 10. Students will develop their understanding of how the Spanish language works by learning more complex language and grammar. The emphasis is on developing authentic communication skills, and in particular learning to understand and speak Spanish in real life situations. The four skills reading, writing, listening and speaking are continued at this level though a theme-based approach.

Language learning is closely linked to life and customs such as geography, cities and cultural festivals in Spanish-speaking countries.

By the end of Year 11, learners can interact with Spanish speakers in familiar social situations and cope with some less familiar ones. They can use basic language patterns spontaneously. They can show a willingness to experiment with the language and to read independently. They can write short passages and personal emails.

The themes will be directed by the curriculum and cover such areas as:

  • Daily life
  • Jobs and your future
  • Diet and healthy lifestyle
  • Travel and holidays

Level 1 Spanish is a prerequisite for Level 2 and Level 3 work in Years 12 and 13, and subsequently university study.
