Spanish — A Level

Course information

A Level Spanish is a grammar and skills based course. Over a period of two years students will develop communication and linguistics skills that not only will improve their Spanish level but also their English level. In lower 6th form, students will study the life and culture of Spanish speaking countries (music, festivals, traditions, cinema, fashion and trends, etc). In Upper 6th form, students will study the most important historical period of the 20th century in Spain, and social and political issues that affect young people today. As part of the course students will also study a Spanish film and a Spanish play, further developing their analytical skills and essay writing skills in the process.
