Spanish A level at Davenant Foundation School

Course description

What will you learn in Year 12?

Students examine issues within two main topics: Current Trends and Artistic Culture in the Spanish-speaking world.

Students will develop their abilities to communicate in written and spoken Spanish and deepen their understanding of the cultures of the countries where Spanish is spoken.

What will you learn in Year 13?

Year 13 topics include Multicultural Society, Social Issues, Politics and Immigration. Students research and debate topics and also study two books, El Coronel no tiene quién le escriba by Gabriel García Márquez and La casa de Bernarda Alba by Federico García Lorca, as well as the film El Laberinto del Fauno by Guillermo del Toro.

We encourage students to read and listen to as much Spanish as possible and they also have weekly sessions with the Language Assistant. Every year we offer a week long work experience opportunity in Madrid (Spain).
