Spanish is becoming one of the most important languages in Europe and it is the most studied foreign language after English. In a worldwide context, with some 400 million speakers, it is the third most commonly spoken language in the world (after English and Chinese), which means that, if you are fluent in English and Spanish, you can communicate with more than half the population in the whole world. It is an official language on four continents and is of historical importance elsewhere.
Furthermore, knowing Spanish can help speakers of English broaden their vocabulary and understand the structure of their native language better. Spanish comes from Latin and often, the same Latin roots are the basis of many sophisticated words in English, so Spanish learners can also become better at English.
This A Level Spanish course is designed to encourage you to develop an interest in, and enthusiasm for language learning. Throughout the course you will develop your understanding of Spanish in a variety of contexts and genres and will learn to communicate confidently, clearly and effectively in Spanish for a range of purposes.
