Spanish A Level

Through the Spanish A Level course, you will study literature, film and traditions and will learn the core skills of translation and interpretation. Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages. It is estimated that Spanish is the mother tongue of more than 400 million people around the world, which is equivalent to approximately six percent of the world’s population. For this reason, if we are based on the number of native speakers, Spanish is officially the second most widely spoken language, ranking ahead of English.

If you are interested in languages and communication, and enjoy learning about other cultures and ways of life, then Modern Foreign Language (MFL) courses could be an enjoyable part of your studies. Similarly, if you are interested in the business world, in travel or tourism, or in journalism and the media, then you are also likely to find the courses appropriate. There are a number of options in the courses where you can choose a topic to suit your interests.

Where can this course take me?

In today’s global economy, knowledge of a second language can be an asset for both companies and employees. Companies are always interested in having workers who can help them with international trade, and Spanish is especially valuable in the current situation.

Traveling for pleasure is exciting, but learning Spanish also opens up the possibility of working in a Spanish-speaking country or studying at a Spanish-based academic institution. Leaving your comfort zone and spending long periods in a foreign country can help you develop professionally and personally.

Here are some of the skills you should develop:

  • communication, including reading, writing and speaking foreign languages
  • gathering, assessing and interpreting information
  • leading and participating in discussions and groups
  • conveying meaning precisely
  • presentation
  • responding to others – from discussions in oral classes
  • attention to detail
  • boost in personal confidence and independence
  • listening to other people
  • resilience
  • problem solving
