Learning a language is the gateway to both exploring, and understanding, a different part of the world and its people. A language is the formation of how the individuals within a culture think and organise their thoughts when communicating. You will find that as you learn a new language you are also learning about your culture and the way that you think and organise your thoughts.
You should have:
- Commitment to the learning
- A love of Spain and its cultural aspects
- A willingness to participate in class activities with peers and to complete homework tasks
- Confidence to speak aloud in class in Spanish
- A willingness to embrace grammar aspects
- A willingness to share ideas, information and personal experiences about Spain in class
Learners will use a balance of the four key elements of language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing to develop their knowledge and abilities within the topic areas.
- Listening comprehension tasks will be undertaken in class using CDs and video clips.
- Speaking of the language will be achieved via pair work role plays, small group activities, games and directed questioning.
- Reading comprehension tasks will be given in class (as well as for homework) and learners will also read aloud in class in Spanish.
- Writing of Spanish will be practised and developed mainly through homework tasks (essential for language building, especially of vocabulary and grammatical structure).
Learners will also develop their knowledge of Spanish grammar rules (using nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives etc).
Learners will be able to converse in Spanish during trips to Spain.
Learners will gain knowledge on Spanish cultural aspects e.g. food, festivals, music, cinema, TV programmes, geography via quizzes, news items, class activities, websites and video clips of Spanish life.
