The Advanced GCE in Spanish has been designed to encourage a love of learning Spanish and is ideal for those students interested in engaging with the social, historical and political context of Spain and other Hispanic countries. The qualification encourages students to engage with modern Spanish society through the reading and analysis of Spanish literature and cinema, as well as engaging with online media. Further analysis of the customs, festivals and cultures of the wider Hispanic world will enable students to develop a broad understanding of what it means to be a Spanish speaker. This combined with a rigorous approach to grammar and translation allows students to learn Spanish alongside other key skills necessary for further and higher education and employment.
