Spanish - Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: D. Wilson

Spanish at Level 3 combines all that has been learnt so far with new vocabulary and some new structures. The aim is to develop a varied and flexible use of the language, where students choose from the language options available to communicate. As always there is a focus on communication and an appreciation of culture. Students have the opportunity to co-construct the topics, thereby making them more meaningful.
