Spanish at William De Ferrers School

Course description

The specification extends naturally from the skills developed at GCSE. Approximately equal stress is placed on each of the linguistic skills, both at AS and A Level, together with some acquisition of knowledge about the contemporary culture and society of Spain and countries or communities where Spanish is spoken. Candidates will be well prepared to use the language for practical communication and to continue their studies to higher education. All units in the AS and A2 Level examination are answered in written or spoken Spanish. Students will work individually, in pairs and groups. After a skills-based bridging course they will be expected to collect, analyse and exchange information and ideas through the medium of foreign language on selected topics.

Entry requirements

Grade B standard and above in Spanish GCSE, though a high grade C may be considered. Borderline candiates will be considered on the strength of their perfomance in individuual papers and an interview with the teacher in charge of the course may be appropriate to ascertain interest and motivation.
