“Learn a Language today for a competitive edge tomorrow©”
The Modern Languages Syllabus focuses on developing students’ ability to communicate in two of the languages in use in the Caribbean region. As students develop the competence to listen, speak, read and write in French and Spanish and interpret aspects of the culture in which the languages are embedded, they acquire the means to facilitate deeper interaction with our Caribbean neighbours.
The syllabus is organised around three main concepts: Functions and Notions, Settings and Topics and Grammar and Lexis. In the syllabus, emphasis is placed on the student’s ability to use the target language in a functional way. Therefore, the basic functions needed for communication are identified. Functions, however, are performed in particular contexts and, therefore, the settings in which the functions are likely to be performed are identified.
This approach used in organising the syllabus seeks to shift attention away from a purely structural approach to a more communicative one. It is expected that students following this syllabus will be able to carry out these functions in the target language based on the following topics – Home and Family, School and Career, Sports and Recreation, Daily Routines, Shopping and Travel.
The syllabus emphasises the development of the four language skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) and the acquisition of knowledge of Hispanic culture through the study of selected topics and contemporary writings of relevance to Caribbean society. Students develop multiple literacies and independent and critical thinking in the context of foreign language learning and in keeping with the UNESCO Pillars of Learning. While the topics have been selected to provide knowledge and understanding of issues pertinent to Caribbean people in a global context, emphasis will be on language competence rather than on detailed technical knowledge.
In developing this syllabus, care has been taken to ensure that it meets the knowledge, understanding and skill requirements common to post-secondary syllabuses in Modern Languages. Completion of this syllabusprovides a foundation for further studies and development for the world of work. This approach reflects an awareness of our regional context and is geared specifically to students learning Modern Languages in the Caribbean as part of the international community.
The syllabus consists of two Units each containing three Modules.
UNIT 1: LA FAMILIA, LA SOCIEDAD Y EL MEDIO AMBIENTE
|Module 1||El individuo, la familia y la vida diaria|
|Module 2||La sociedad y los asuntos sociales|
|Module 3||El medio ambiente|
UNIT 2: LAS ACTUALIDADES, LA TECNOLOGÍA Y LA ECONOMÍA
|Module 1||Las actualidades|
|Module 2||La ciencia y la tecnología|
|Module 3||La industria y los asuntos económicos|

This syllabus is designed for learners who are learning Spanish or French as a foreign language. The aim is to develop an ability to use the language effectively for practical communication.
