Senior High 

Spanish Language Courses

Spanish 10 (5 credits)

  • prerequisite - none

This Spanish Language and Culture Three-year (3Y) Program is intended for students who are beginning their study of Spanish language and culture in senior high school.

The value of learning the Spanish language is enormous for Albertan society as a whole. Apart from the common advantages related to the learning of an international language, it permits an insight into the rich and varied cultures developed in the Spanish-speaking world and bestows more opportunity to communicate directly with Spanish-speaking people. As well, for some students with a prior knowledge of the language and cultures, it offers an opportunity for renewed contact. It contributes to maintaining and developing literacy for those whose first language is Spanish. The textbook explores different dialects with a focus on Castilian. It ensures the technical, formal aspects of the language are taught so the Spanish is transferable.
