Spanish A Level *FEES PAYABLE* at Eastbourne College
The AS course offers an enjoyable, lively and varied programme. You will continue with the familiar skills learnt at GCSE, that is to say speaking, reading, listening and writing, but the topics covered are aimed to stimulate and educate: Media; Popular Culture; Healthy Living/Lifestyle; Family/Relationships; Leisure and Tourism. In addition to this you will be given an introduction to various aspects of Spanish culture, for example films, short stories, aspects of civilization and history. A solid grounding in grammar will ensure that you feel comfortable and confident through to Advanced Level and university language courses. You will have one individual session a week with a native-speaker to develop your oral confidence. Everyone will have ample opportunity to participate in visits, social events and trips. The many multi-media resources online and in the LRC offer exciting support material and you will spend regular lessons in the digital language laboratory. It is required that you spend at least one week in Spain on an approved activity, either on a department study/work experience trip or one arranged privately. You will be offered excellent guidance and advice on all these activities.
No one can doubt the importance of languages in our increasingly international world. Whatever field of work you are considering, the ability to offer a modern foreign language could set you apart from other candidates. Spain will continue to attract visitors from around the world due to its unique physical and cultural inheritance. With the number of Spanish-speakers superseding English speakers and with many organizations interested in developing the huge markets in South America, Spanish is proving ever more popular and increasingly in demand and would complement any other subject at AS level.
You will take two module exams at the end of your Lower Sixth year. These will comprise reading, speaking, listening and writing elements.
