13SPA

Level 3 Spanish

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Derecourt

Year 13 Spanish focuses upon extending students’ pre-established knowledge of the language. Emphasis will be placed upon gaining fluency in Spanish, both oral and written. Complex social issues such as religion, government and the environment will be examined in depth, with students invited to offer mature, informed opinions and advice about these topics. Overall, students will look to gain confidence in the language and all its complexities. 

The credits on offer are well-balanced between internal and external standards and across the four main language disciplines of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Learning a language has many benefits, including improved communication skills, travel opportunities, employment prospects and the ability to enjoy a whole new world of information and entertainment through books, movies, songs and websites.
