Spanish A Level at Paget High School

Course description

You may think that languages aren’t really relevant to today's modern world; everyone speaks English, right? Wrong. Languages are all around us; they are used in so many situations whether at work, on holiday or just casually in day to day life; we live in a multilingual global society.


Choosing an A-level language is a really smart move, if you want a fascinating subject that offers you a range of career possibilities at the end and are a lot of fun along the way. Learning a language is a never ending process; languages are constantly changing, bringing in new words and getting rid of old ones. This is one of the great things about learning languages; you’re always up to speed with the world!


An A-level language complements a whole variety of subjects. You may need languages for all sorts of career destinations - Doctors, Psychologists and Physiotherapists need language skills to communicate effectively with patients, whether they work in the UK or overseas; Businessmen, Bankers and Entrepreneurs all need language skills to make deals and sell products on the global market. Politicians, Historians, Geographers and Holiday Reps all need language skills to get to know the people and area that they are passionate about.


Having a language can increase your salary from 8% to 20% and gives you a head start on other potential employees as by speaking another language you’re vital to any company who does international business (and there are a lot of them). Plus, a language is also a pre-requisite for lots of university courses if you’re thinking about this route. Languages are the key to the new, exciting multinational world we live in, so don’t miss out
