NCEA Level 2 Spanish

12SPN
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Moreno

Recommended Prior Learning

There is an entry requirement of 14 credits in NCEA Level 1 Spanish, or HOD approval


Level 2 Spanish continues to extend the speaking and listening skills already developed in Level 1 Spanish. Students build their oral fluency and are capable of discussing a wider range of issues in our society.

Through a theme-based approach, students study Latin American and Spanish society, as well as education, cities and the environment. The language skills practiced include giving and responding to advice, approval and disagreement, expressing opinions with reasons and recounting past events. Students learn more complex grammar and vocabulary, and are therefore able to write more complex pieces and read a much wider range of texts.  

At Level 2, students are encouraged to communicate in Spanish as much as possible, as well as immerse themselves in listening opportunities both at school and at home. Strengthened listening skills are of upmost important in Level 2 Spanish, and this skill is practiced frequently in the classroom.

Note: 2.2 Spoken Presentation is optional
