Spanish A Level

Studying Spanish at AS and A’ Level encourages students to explore Spain and the Spanish speaking world and learn about their history, their geography and their culture and how these relate to contemporary issues in society and politics. We do this through reading, listening and watching a wide variety of authentic texts and media. Students develop their language skills to understand information, consider the views of others, draw conclusions and express their own thoughts clearly in a more sophisticated language.
