At John Henry Newman Catholic College we believe that learning a foreign language is about so much more than just learning vocabulary and grammar. Not only will our learners be competent communicators with the confidence and ability to use their Spanish language skills, but also through the study of Spanish, they will open their hearts and minds to other cultures, customs and traditions.


“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”

Nelson Mandela

We encourage our students to embrace and celebrate their personal and cultural differences. Learning about different languages and cultures builds bridges between communities and brings people together. We encourage our students to be excited about the opportunities that become available to us when we think globally and rise to the challenge of mastering a second language.
