Do you want a qualification that will make you stand out from the crowd? By choosing A Level Spanish you will enhance your knowledge of Spanish and the Spanish speaking world, and be able to communicate effectively with 500 million Spanish speakers globally.

Spanish A level is a wide ranging course which includes traditional culture, youth culture, politics, social issues, Spanish regional identity as well as language. This makes Spanish a facilitating subject for University entrance.

We cover a wide range of topics from the changing role of the family in Spain to regional gastronomy, languages, music and festivals and political movements in Spain and Latin America including the Cuban dictatorship and the 15M youth movement in Spain. Our experienced teachers draw on varied resources to ensure that you are up to date with current issues in the Spanish-speaking world whilst developing your language skills.

During the course, you will have the opportunity to complete an in depth study of a Spanish play, La Casa de Bernarda Alba by Lorca, and film, Volver by Pedro Almodóvar, developing a deeper understanding of the context in which each is set. You will further develop skills by undertaking an Individual Research Project on a topic of your choice during Year 13, which will form the basis of your speaking examination at the end of the course. Past topics have included Flamenco, women’s rights in Argentina and Catalan independence.
