Spanish A Level at Woodroffe School

Course description

This one year course is designed to be challenging and motivating, enabling students to develop an advanced level knowledge and understanding of the Spanish language and the culture of Spain and other Hispanic countries, as well as practical language skills. Over the course, students will develop the fluency and confidence in speaking to enable them to use Spanish outside of the classroom, and have the skills they need to progress to higher level study if they choose. Our aim is for students to really enjoy Spanish, as well as being well prepared for their exams. In addition, all students will have the opportunity to take part in a study trip to Barcelona.
