The course aims to build on the knowledge acquired at GCSE and will help you further develop your language skills, as well as encouraging an awareness of the cultural differences between Britain and Spanish-speaking countries. The course is suitable for anyone with a keen interest in speaking, reading, writing and listening to Spanish and who is interested in learning about Spanish grammar.
In Year 1 you will study aspects of Spanish-speaking society and artistic culture; for example, modern and traditional values, cyberspace, and equality of the sexes, modern day idols, Spanish regional identity and cultural heritage in the Hispanic world.
In Year 2 you will study aspects of Spanish-speaking society and political life, for example, immigration, racism and integration, young people and politics, monarchies and dictatorships, and popular movements. You will also study a film and a book.
Standard A Level entry requirements apply - the minimum requirement is at least five GCSEs at Grade 5, including Maths and English. For this course you will also need a Grade 6 or above in GCSE Spanish.
Many of our students go on to study a higher education course in Modern Languages at university, or those with a European or international dimension. Alternatively, students can study a language with other subjects such as Business Studies, Law or Sciences.
