Spanish has become a very popular choice for Chinese Canadian children to learn as a second language. Our Spanish Program contains four levels.
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, second only to Chinese, and one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Learning Spanish not only allows children to master one more language and learn more about a culture, but it also broadens their future employment opportunities.
The Beginner Spanish course is for students who have no experience in Spanish learning, and it will provide students speaking Spanish with a solid foundation and confidence.
Topics that will cover in the course include: Introducing ourselves and others, describing family life, and sharing hobbies. This will be achieved through oral, listening, reading and writing tasks, which provide students with ample opportunities to develop their Spanish communication skills.
The Intermediate Spanish course requires students to have a basic foundation of Spanish, and it will improve students' thematic vocabulary and grammar concepts.
Topics will be covered include daily life, health, fitness and travel. Grammar concepts will not only be learned in the form of grammar topics, but also integrated into all Spanish learning, listening, speaking, reading and writing in the application of grammar knowledge, consolidating the knowledge points.
