This course follows the A-level syllabus and is suitable for those who would like to progress in Spanish in a structured way. The course does not lead to the exam but you will be able to sit the A-level exam in the summer 2021. Ideally you should have taken GCSE Spanish (A*-B mark) or equivalent upper intermediate knowledge.


What is the course about?

This course, which takes place over 3 modules, will help you transition from GCSE to A Level. We will work on improving your intermediate grammar, acquiring more advanced grammar knowledge, developing your listening and speaking skills, and teaching you the vocabulary required by the various topics used across the exam units.

What will we cover?

- El cambio en la estructura familiar: la evolución de las actitudes hacia el matrimonio, las relaciones y las familias.

- El mundo laboral: la vida laboral en España y las actitudes hacia el trabajo; las oportunidades de trabajo
para los jóvenes; la igualdad de género.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- listen and respond to a variety of spoken Spanish-language sources, including authentic sources

- use the Spanish language accurately to express facts and ideas

- understand and apply the grammatical system and a range of structures.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This is an upper intermediate course and will be entirely taught in Spanish.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The course is based on the communicative approach:

- active students’ interaction
- emphasis on speaking and listening skills
- pair and group work
- role plays
- use of realia, pictures and authentic material
- use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

Students are expected to participate in the classroom activities and to do approximately 1-2 hour homework per week.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
