Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, after English and Mandarin. There are more than 400 hundred million Spanish speakers in the world, not just in Spain and South America, but also in the United States and even the Philippines. 25 different nations speak Spanish either as the official language or as a first language. In addition, it is one of the top five languages used in business, so speaking Spanish could also improve your job prospects in the future. When you broaden your knowledge of the culture, traditions and societies within the Hispanic world, it helps you become a more flexible and open-minded person. Studying Spanish A-Level will enable you to build on the skills that you have learnt at GCSE and deepen your understanding of the language, culture, society and history of Spain, as well as develop your grammatical knowledge and your spoken fluency.
Studying a Modern Foreign Language at A-Level will enable you to build on the skills that you have learnt at GCSE and deepen your understanding of the language, culture, society and history of the country of your chosen language, as well as develop your grammatical knowledge and your spoken fluency.
Any Modern Language is highly sought after by employers and is a great skill to possess in the current work market. Furthermore, top universities respect and recognise the demands of studying this subject and the wide array of transferable skills acquired by students who study a language at A Level. Languages can be combined with nearly any other subject at university. Many of our students choose to continue to study languages either on their own or as a combined programme after College. In the past students have studied more than one language at university, or combined their language with other subjects such as Business, Zoology, Linguistics, Drama, Economics, Law, History and even Physics and Medicine.
At least five 5’s at GCSE, including at least a 6 in Spanish.
Have you considered studying a Mixed Programme (A-Levels and Btecs) Whether you’re on target to achieve five 5s in your GCSEs or not there may still be an option to study A-Levels alongside a BTEC qualification at Newman.
