Spanish at Palmer's College

Course description

Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world and 22 countries have Spanish as their first language. These countries are developing increasingly strong business and tourism links with Britain.

GCSE Spanish will provide the foundation for further study of Spanish or will be a useful qualification for the world of work.

Course content

This is an intensive course (no previous knowledge of Spanish is necessary).

The course will enable students to acquire a good command of the language in most areas of everyday life in a Spanish speaking country.

Entry requirements

A minimum grade C at GCSE in another foreign language.

Future opportunities

If you do not wish to pursue Spanish at A-level, a good command of ‘working’ Spanish will be a strong asset in the following vocational areas: travel and tourism, banking/commerce, secretarial studies and business studies.
