Spanish A Level at The John Fisher School

Course description

Why should I study Spanish? Communication - Even though English is widely spoken in much of the world, the fact is that the global economy depends on communication. Cultural understanding - Because language simultaneously defines and is defined by the world around us, learning another language opens one's mind to new ideas and new ways of looking at the world. Business and careers - Speaking more than one language is a skill which will increase your marketability. Language enhancement - Many languages have contributed to the development of English, so learning those will teach you where words and even grammatical structures are from, and augment your vocabulary to boot. Exam results - Foreign language study can help to increase problem-solving skills, memory, and self-discipline.
