This unit assumes no prior knowledge or study of the language.

Advanced Standing in Spanish:

Non-VCE students with prior knowledge of Spanish (such as heritage-speakers) can contact the Spanish Program Coordinator to organise a placement test preferably before the commencement of trimester. The test evaluates students’ proficiency in Spanish so that, if and when adequate prior knowledge is demonstrated, advanced standing in Spanish can be granted and specific unit pre-requisites can be waived. Non VCE-students with prior knowledge of Spanish are then able to enrol at the most suitable level.


This unit will give students an introduction to basic vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure of Spanish for use in everyday contexts and daily activities. Students will be familiarised with the sociolinguistic and sociocultural aspects of Spanish communication at a basic level. In addition, this unit introduces the diversity of the Hispanic world through the study of the histories, societies and cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. This unit assumes no prior knowledge or study of the language.
