MFL – Year 8 – Spanish

Year 8 Schemes of Work

In year 8, students study Spanish for 2 lessons a week. The course starts by looking at how to describe others as well as students’ own daily routine. Students learn to discuss future plans and how to negotiate these plans with others. The course also covers holidays, food, clothing and a unit studying life in Barcelona. As students cover the past, present and future tenses in more detail by the end of the year most students should be working between levels 4-6.
