Spanish at Fakenham Academy (College)

Course description

This course will encourage you to become more confident in your communication skills, both written and spoken. At this level, accuracy of expression is very important and you will have plenty of opportunity to consolidate your understanding of how the language works. This will enable you to become more fully in control of what you say and how you express it.

At AS topics include Media, Popular Culture, Healthy Living/Lifestyle, Family and Relationships. These topics provide a context within which you will progress from the transactional language of GCSE to the more reflective approach of AS.

At A2 the topics include the Environment, Multi-cultural Society and Contemporary Social Issues. In this second year you will develop more advanced linguistic competence. the course draws on a wide range of resources that aim to stimulate interest in France and the French speaking world. there are then a further two 'cultural' topics which again must be covered thoroughly in preparation for the exam in both units.

Entry requirements
