Studying Spanish at advanced level undoubtedly increases your employment opportunities.
We aim to develop an appreciation of Spain and its culture, and make the A Level compelling by basing the study topics around lifestyle and social topics that you’ll be interested in. Students will research information, take part in debates, and explore their feelings about contemporary issues, all whilst building on their knowledge of Spanish gained at GCSE.
All 4 skill areas are tested based on current trends in Spanish society, artistic culture in the Spanish-speaking world and the study of a Spanish film. The topics covered are: the ‘cyber security’, modern and traditional values, equal rights, the influence of modern-day idols, Spanish regional identity and the heritage of Spain. In Year 13 students study further topics within social and political spheres in the Spanish-speaking world as well as a literary text.
Only 1 in 10 careers with languages is in fields such as interpreting and teaching. Whether you are destined for a career in commerce, accountancy, the travel industry, medicine, or engineering, a language should be considered an invaluable skill.
