A-Level Spanish is a challenging but rewarding course, which not only looks at how the Spanish language works but also gives a great in-depth look at Spanish society and Spanish-speaking countries. Each year you will research a topic of interest to you in order to present it in a speaking exam. You will also sit a listening, reading and writing exam.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
communicate confidently in Spanish
write in Spanish with accuracy and fluency
demonstrate an extended knowledge of the grammatical structure of Spanish
compare/contrast aspects of contemporary Spanish and Spanish – speaking countries
sit the A-level examination with confidence
Studying a foreign language at AS/A2 level will broaden your horizons, make
you aware of current affairs and popular culture, give you the ability to debate
and argue your point, and communicate effectively using a high degree of
spoken and written language.
Future Studies and Career Opportunities
Further Education Colleges and Universities often cite the ability to learn a foreign language as one of the deciding factors in granting places on their courses. This is particularly important at a time when securing a university place that you want is harder than ever and UK businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the need to move beyond English. It is difficult to think of a single career area where language skills are not an advantage. In an increasingly globalised world, the importance of learning a Modern Foreign Language has been recognised as being more valuable than ever and will be a great asset
whatever your future career plans will be.
