Do you want to be able to communicate with over half of the world’s population? Do you want to understand what Sergio Agüero and Lionel Messi have to say about football? Or what about listening to the words of your favourite Salsa tunes? These are all good reasons to study Spanish …


The A Level Spanish course is designed to help you to develop your interest in, and enthusiasm for, language learning. Throughout the course, you will develop your understanding of Spanish in a variety of topic areas and will learn to communicate confidently, clearly and effectively in Spanish for a range of purposes.

The course is set in the context of the following two main areas of interest with their themes and sub-themes, and the wide variety of material you will read, listen to, write and speak about will be related to them:

Area of Interest 1 – Social issues and trends,

Area of Interest 2 – Political, intellectual and artistic culture

In addition, you will study a film and literary work in Spanish.


There is the possibility of a variety of trips to see Spanish films and plays, or to attend university department ‘Language Learning’ days. There might also be the possibility of a trip to a Spanish-speaking country.


At the end of the two year course, you will sit an oral examination (30%), a combined Listening, Reading and Translation paper (50%) and a Writing examination (20%).


A-level languages are academic subjects which are very highly regarded by universities. A good grade in Spanish demonstrates excellent mental, social and cultural skills which university course leaders of most subjects, as well as employers, value highly.


To study an A-level programme you will need to achieve 5 GCSEs grade 4 or above, including English and Maths. You will also need to have gained at least a grade 6 in GCSE Spanish. Native speakers may also be considered for this course.




This subject will take two years to complete.
