“El estudio de las lenguas extranjeras nos permite descubrir aquello que está más allá del perímetro de nuestro pensamiento. Nos abre las puertas a un mundo de diversidades tradicionales y filosóficas”
Eddie Machín, Escritor
Learning a foreign language not only looks great on your CV and is asset when you are travelling abroad, it also improves the way you brain functions by posing challenges when you communicate using a different system.
With more than 400 million speakers, Spanish is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world. Learning Spanish will help to keep up with the increasing Hispanic influence on global culture. Learning a new language will broaden your horizons, enhance your experience when you travel and will increase your job opportunities.
Spanish is offered throughout KS3 and 4 at both Higher and Foundation Level. It is a developing and dynamic language studied through a range of approaches, technologies and resources. Across the three years, the course not only prepares students for the Spanish GCSE but also provides them with a range of opportunities to experience and relish the Spanish culture and language.
Students studying Spanish at GCSE and A level will follow the Spanish AQA course.
