Spanish Language and Culture 10/20/30
Spanish is one of the fastest growing second language programs in the province. The Spanish Language and Culture program is designed for non-native speakers and beginning level students. The focus of the program is to build the students' confidence in the language while building their vocabulary. Students will use the language in everyday situations, learning to speak in the past, present and future tenses. Through a variety of videos, texts, music and movies students will be exposed to different aspects of the Hispanic cultures around the world. Students will develop their skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension through individual work, projects, oral presentations and exams. Participation in Hispanic community events will be explored each year to provide authentic opportunities for students to use their language skills. Spanish 30 is a 30-level course which can be used for admission into post-secondary colleges and universities as well as for scholarships. Travel opportunities to Spanish-speaking countries will also be available during the 3 year program here at Strathcona. *Students who have completed Spanish 7, 8 and 9 in junior high must register in Spanish 10-6Y, which is a continuation of the junior high program. Students new to learning Spanish must register in Spanish 10-3Y. 5 CREDITS
