B2 and B3 Spanish (EAB2/EAB3)

The Spanish studies started in lower secondary continue as B2 Spanish. If you wish to reinforce your command of the language, you can start your studies on courses EAB31 or EAB32.

The studies according to EAB2 syllabus start on course EAB21, which is a joint course with EAB33. Students starting Spanish in upper secondary (according to EAB3 syllabus) are to take the courses from EAB31 onwards.
