Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Torrealba

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 11 Spanish or equivalent.



Well done, you have made it to year 12. ¡Felicitaciones!

Continuing to learn Spanish will widen your options and possibilities in the future.

I am sharing with you this video of a British journalist reporting in six languages, and amongst them is Spanish. 




In Year 12 Spanish, students engage in sustained interactions and produce extended texts as they explore the views of others and develop and share personal perspectives. 

Students will learn to handle more complex language in order to discuss areas of interest of young people and express and justify ideas and opinions as well as supporting and challenging the ideas and opinions of others.

By the end of year 12, students will be able to talk, respond, read, listen and write more confidently using increasingly complex and varied language and they will have a greater understanding of the culture.

  • Family values
  • Cyberspace
  • The influence of idols and celebrities
