The course is built around the following topic areas: Family & Relationships, Rights & Responsibilities, Leisure, Healthy Living, Education, Jobs & Careers, Media, Environment, Multiculturalism, Spain and Europe, The Spanish-speaking World and Global Issues. Students will build upon the skills that they have acquired at GCSE level, and learn to understand and to express themselves more fluently in Spanish. Spanish and the Spanish speaking world are studied in depth and students will gain an appreciation of the culture, geography and history behind the language. Immersion into the language is vital and therefore, we encourage students to watch Spanish films, listen to Spanish music, participate in lively debate and do their own individual research. Our students also have the opportunity to take part in Spanish Topic Days and to cook and sample Spanish cuisine!
