It is important that the learners of Hastings develop a greater insight into the Spanish speaking world as well as into their own community and ultimately themselves. It is our intent through this curriculum that learners will work towards proficiency as well as become more aware of other cultures, thereby enhancing their global perspectives and cross-cultural understanding.
