Spanish is taught from years 7 to 11 and the learning journey shows the topics you will learn at each stage.
Examination Board: AQA
Being able to speak a foreign language is a valuable skill for your career as well as your leisure time. A GCSE in a language will set you apart from many other school leavers in the country. You will learn to understand, speak and write the foreign language well. You will have opportunities to express your opinions, and to learn about life in other countries. Universities are increasingly favouring applicants with a Languages GCSE.
Assessment: Each of the four skills will be tested and all exams take place at the end of Year 11. Your teacher will conduct the Speaking test.
Progression: You can study Spanish at A level. The language learning skills you develop will also help you to learn other languages. Languages are important in a wide range of jobs as more companies and professions operate in a global market. As Spanish is spoken across the world, it is very highly valued by higher education providers and potential employers.
