Course description

An A Level in Spanish helps students develop confident, effective communication skills as well as a thorough understanding of the culture of countries where Spanish is spoken. You will study a wide variety of topics all of which have something to do with French speaking countries. There will also be time for you to study culture – film, music, the arts and some literature (short stories, poems, extracts from plays or novels). Classes are taught mainly in the target language. We also have dedicated Foreign Language Assistants who will work with you on a one-to-one basis outside of lessons. In the oral exams and coursework you will have the opportunity to research and evaluate topic areas that are of particular interest to you. This will enable you to further your existing cultural knowledge.
