Can you say, “Hola? Chocolate? Amigo?” If so, you’re already a part of CCC’s new journey into languages.

In 2017, Cooloola Christian College is pleased to be offering Spanish lessons to students from prep to year seven. With Languages now being a part of the Australian Curriculum, CCC has chosen to adopt Spanish as our language of choice.

There are over 500 million Spanish-speaking people in the world, making Spanish the fourth most spoken language, after Mandarin, Hindi and English. Spanish is also one of the six official languages of the United Nations, as well as being the official language of 20 countries. Spanish is a ‘Romance’ language which means it is based on Latin, and therefore shares many Latin roots with English words.

Why Learn a Language? Through learning languages, students acquire:

  • communication skills in the language being learnt;
  • an intercultural capability, and an understanding of the role of language and culture in communication a capability for reflection on language use and language learning.

Language learning provides the opportunity for students to engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of the world and its peoples, to reflect on their understanding of experience in various aspects of social life, and on their own participation and ways of being in the world.

Learning languages also contributes to strengthening the community’s social, economic and international development capabilities. Language capabilities represent linguistic and cultural resources through which the community can engage socially, culturally and economically, in domains which include business, trade, science, law, education, tourism, diplomacy, international relations, health and communications.

We are excited to be offering CCC students these exciting opportunities and look forward to enthusiastic participation from students and teachers.
