Students will explore the more significant issues of life and culture in the Spanish-speaking countries, and globally. This course promotes inquiry, comprehensive research, analysis and reflection. As students develop greater mastery of their language skills in Spanish, they will be encouraged to communicate their ideas and opinions accurately and with more fluency. This provides students with a very sound basis of Spanish for further studies at tertiary level and a career pathway.
