Topics

Topics are chosen so that no surprises can occur in the examinations. With more emphasis on interculturality than the younger years, this course takes the student into the Spanish speaking world. From foods to countries, this course has an exciting group of topics to instil a passion for Spanish. Students can explore whilst preparing for future assessment. Essential vocabulary, grammar rules along with pronunciation are taught through topics our young learners can relate to.

Skills

Exam savvy skills are the key.  Through thorough assessment, students will have personal help for any areas that they are having difficulties in. This will be clearly communicated with parents with a clear plan in place. Expression in both written form and speech will be encouraged through practise, correction and praise.

Curriculum

Our professional resources bring our topics to life. We have chosen resources specifically tailored for the exams our teens will be sitting here in Singapore. Recommended by the Cervantes Institute of Madrid, our textbooks and resources have continuity and stimulate the retention of Spanish.

Portfolio

On their Spanish journey our young learners will be accumulating evidence of their progression relating to specific aspects of the exams they have. Students will obtain written work, homework and oral examples that reinforce the learnt vocabulary and grammar structures. Our teachers will present the learners portfolio to parents at the end of each term to show progression along with methods to improve any areas of weakness.
