Spanish AS/A Level at The Commonweal School

Course description

“You live a new life for every new language you speak. If you know only one language, you live only once” --‐ a proverb (Eastern European)

Not everyone speaks English in the world; in fact only 25% of the world’s population speak it as their second language and 6% as their first. Who are these other people? What can you learn from them? What can they learn from you?

This course will develop your awareness and understanding of contemporary Hispanic society, culture and heritage whilst further expanding your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Through the study of topic areas, you will be encouraged to form opinions and make judgements within the appropriate context, and will be provided with many opportunities to develop understanding of spiritual, moral and cultural issues. Classwork consists mainly of reading and listening exercises, leading to oral--‐based discussion – role--‐play is also important. Written work is also developed in class and focussed on through homework.

Entry requirements
