Spanish A Level (Edexcel) at Stroud High School
It is now commonplace for proficiency in languages to be sought among employers. More and more professions require you to work in a multilingual environment and there are few companies who do not have customers, if not branches, abroad. Just have a look at some higher education prospectuses and you will see how many of them combine science, ICT, engineering, management and business studies with languages. Consider the advantages you will have if you have the ability to speak another language, coupled with a sound understanding of the politics and culture of the country or countries concerned. Not just travel companies, but also business, finance, technology, media, creative and science-based professions are all increasingly looking for graduates who can offer a range of skills including language proficiency.
You will develop your ability to write fluently and accurately in Spanish for a range of different purposes and increase your understanding of grammar and how the language fits together and acquire important personal research and study skills through topic and project work.
Component 1: Speaking
