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.

Students will continue to learn the sociolinguistic and sociocultural aspects of Spanish communication at a basic level. In addition, this unit will build on the students’ knowledge of the Hispanic world through the study of the histories, societies and cultures of Spanish-speaking countries.
