  • 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. 




     




 

In our classes, through the study of the Spanish language and culture, we strive to:

  • Promote proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and writing of Spanish and cultural awareness.
  • Increase the learners’ communication skills.
  • Develop the learners’ skill of critical thinking.
  • Promote collaborative learning.
  • Foster a sense of humanity and friendship.
  • Prepare the learners to become citizens at local, national and international levels.
  • Develop assets to the learners’ post-secondary study, professional development and career opportunities.
