In speaking and writing, you will learn how to hold conversations and take part in discussions in Spanish, giving positive or negative points and your own opinions. As well as how to argue politely! You will be taught how to manipulate grammar and to structure essays in the target language.

Furthermore, in the second year you will study a Spanish film and some literature in depth

Entry requirements

Future opportunities

Leading universities now promote the fact that in the current climate many companies are desperate for linguists. There is an urgent need for people who are able to communicate with other countries and businesses at home and abroad in the global economy.

Recent studies show that, at degree level; those doing a Modern Foreign Language are more employable than those with any other degree except Medicine. Worth thinking about!
