Spanish A Level at Worcester Sixth Form College
Spanish, the first language of 22 nations and 300 million people, is developing rapidly as a language of increasing importance here in Britain, not only because of the many links through tourism but also because of the development of Spain as an important European Union trading nation and improved relations with Spanish-speaking countries in South America.
