10 Spanish

Although next year timetables are yet to be finalised, course selection is now finished. Any changes to student courses will now take place in January.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Torrealba

This course has a strong communicative focus. It also covers Spanish language, grammar and a very strong focus on culture. By the end of the year, students will be able to write, present, read, listen and interact in different contexts. Students will be able to express their ideas using the present, past and future tenses.

10 Spanish builds on the Year 9 course and deepens understanding of the Spanish language through online tools, speaking activities, games, cultural projects and access to real materials. Highlights of the course include videoing your own cooking masterclass in Spanish and planning a trip to a Hispanic destination.

Other topics include:

  • talk about own interests,
  • describe a past holiday,
  • make plans for the weekend,
  • order a meal in a restaurant and talk about their eating habits,
  • discuss their fashion preferences,
  • and give a virtual tour around Barcelona.

Throughout the year, there will be fun and interesting culture activities that involve crafts, sampling Spanish food and learning about customs and traditions.
