Spanish A Level at Sussex Downs College

Course description

A Level Spanish is a challenging and rewarding course which will widen your horizons. You will develop more advanced listening and reading skills in a variety of contexts, whilst finding out about Spanish culture and ways of life. You will learn to communicate with confidence and increased accuracy in written and spoken Spanish, expressing your point of view. The study of Spanish grammar and translation is an integral part of the course. The study programme is supplemented with weekly oral classes in small groups with a native speaker. You will also study independently in the Learning and Resources Centre, which is fully equipped.

Entry requirements

You will need to meet our standard entry requirements.

You will need at least GCSE Spanish grade B/6. Candidates without GCSE Spanish but who are bilingual (can write and speak in Spanish fluently) will also be considered after an interview with a member of the MFL team.

Assessment

Throughout the course you will be given weekly homework and regular tests. At the end of the two year course you will sit the final exams. The oral exam consists of a presentation of an individually chosen and researched project and discussion on other topics.
