Spanish Level 3 (SPAN2611)


This unit builds on the basic language skills acquired in SPAN1621 and 1622 or HSC Beginners Spanish. It will introduce you to more complex grammatical structures and expand your vocabulary so that you are able to communicate both in writing and speech in a wider variety of situations than you could previously. Activities used in the classroom will be designed to allow you to further explore the culture and history of the Spanish-speaking world as well as improving your Spanish.
