For Parents and Carers
Type of subject: Academic
This subject goes well with: Business Studies, Geography, Travel and Tourism or Law. Spanish also helps to improve English skills as it is literacy based.
Examples of topics studied:
Future plans, education and work, customer service and transactions, media and culture, travel and tourism, sport and leisure and the environment.
You must have studied Spanish for at least two years at Key Stage 3.
How is the course assessed?
The course is assessed through a final examination in Year 11. There is no coursework or controlled assessment.
You will study a wide range of topics to prepare you for the final exam, as well as studying translation skills from English to Spanish and Spanish to English, essay writing and conversation skills. At the end of the two-year course, you will sit one exam that covers the core skills of writing, translating, speaking, listening and reading.
This is a good subject to choose if you want to become a businessperson, travel agent, translator, politician, diplomat, teacher, pilot, interpreter, salesperson, chalet maid, ski rep or nanny abroad. Having a language qualification will also increase your average earnings in the workplace.
If you choose Spanish you will be offered the opportunity to take part on an exchange abroad, staying with a family and hosting a foreign student. Not only is this a fabulous way to get to know a different culture but it is also a great opportunity to improve your language skills.
If you don’t choose this subject, you may not be able to apply to certain universities!
