Spanish - Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: D. Wilson

Spanish at Level 2 broadens students' horizons. Akonga move from the immediately familiar to making comparisons between culture and lifestyle. The aim is to develop increasingly able communicators who can participate in discussion. This is achieved by inquiring into similarities and differences between New Zealand and Spanish-speaking countries in contexts such as friendship, study, interests, and travel.
