Communication, Language Knowledge and Cultural Knowledge, levels 1 and 2

At these levels, students can understand and use familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary. They can interact in a simple way in supported situations.

In selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will: For this example, students might:


  • receive and produce information;


  • use simple (one-clause or one-phrase) sentences and everyday vocabulary in a poster, which is a text type familiar to the students and appropriate to simple language;


  • produce and respond to questions and requests;


  • notice that questions in Spanish can be made with simple inflection in oral form;


  • show social awareness when interacting with others;


  • communicate information appropriately through their poster;


  • recognise that Spanish is organised in particular ways;


  • recognise and use the formulaic expressions se busca and llámame as language models;


  • make connections with their own language(s);


  • begin to learn dictionary skills and be encouraged to find any new vocabulary for themselves (for example, nouns such as teclado);


  • recognise that Hispanic cultures are organised in particular ways;


  • learn written punctuation of inverted ! and ? marks;


  • make connections with known culture(s).


  • compare the uses of technology in Latin American countries that have little reliable infrastructure, e.g., in Bolivia, few people have telephones in their homes, but one in four people have a mobile phone.

Context: Students produce a poster for a lost item. Students can view, present, and/or write the poster.
