Our Spanish language and culture lesson takes place daily for students who make a choice to either learn Spanish or Chinese. The Spanish course is designed for beginners.
Providing choice and variety to our Language programme at SJI International, ensures students are able to develop skills in a language that supports their ability and interest.
