What will I study in A Level spanish?

We follow the AQA specification for A Level. In the Lower Sixth, we study aspects of Hispanic society such as traditional and modern values, equal rights and cyberspace. We also learn about the artistic culture in the Hispanic world and discuss modern day idols, Spanish regional identity and cultural heritage. During this year, an in-depth study of a film by a Hispanic director is also part of the curriculum.

The course builds on the skills acquired at GCSE and develops knowledge of grammar for the purposes of practical communication. 

In the second year (Upper Sixth) we study the multicultural Hispanic society and aspects of political life in the Hispanic world. Students also read and study a novel by a Hispanic author and complete an in-depth, independent research study on a cultural topic of their choice. This may relate to any aspect of the Hispanic world that may appeal to students’ personal interests. There will be examinations for listening, reading, writing and speaking in the summer term of the Upper Sixth.

Where does A Level Spanish lead?

Students are offered the chance to discover Spain and practise their language skills on work experience.
