Spanish A Level
Studying Spanish is more than doing a language to go on holiday...it is linked to the understanding of societies, cultures and the economy. In other words, it will help you to understand the world you live in. This course offers you the opportunity to become competent in the language but, equally important, it will provide you with skills that employers look for: critical thinking and problem solving, excellent memory capacity, a global outlook, intercultural competence, a great team player. You will stand out from the crowd for a good reason!
