Modern Foreign Languages - Spanish

Spanish is the world's second-most spoken native language and is increasingly important on the global economic stage, widely used in the US as well as South America and Spain itself. Culturally, Spanish-speaking nations are increasingly influential, and speaking and understanding Spanish adds to the ability of young people to act as citizens of the world, as well as being personally fulfilling and adding to a student’s employability.

Studying Spanish is not just valuable for those wanting to study modern languages at university but it can also really benefit students wanting to study history, politics, law and English literature. Increasingly employers look for candidates who are competent in second languages and speaking a second language can you the edge in the jobs market. Learning another language also helps foster skills that employers value, teaching young people to communicate in a confident and articulate way.

At Eltham Hill School we ensure that students have a thorough understanding of Spanish grammar and vocabulary but we also aim to instil a love of the language by making learning enjoyable and stimulating. We use games, audio-visual and ICT resources to make learning fun and to allow students to explore and appreciate Spanish cultures. We run a regular exchange programme with Spanish schools which allows students to experience Spanish life first hand as well as improving their spoken Spanish.
