A LEVEL

Spanish A-Level

What is A-Level Spanish?

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.
