Spanish A Level - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

We start by refreshing GCSE vocabulary and reinforcing grammar, so you develop a strong foundation from which to progress. You will learn how to express your ideas and opinions in speech and writing, participate in role-plays, debates and discussions. There is also a strong focus on Spanish culture, including learning about Spanish film, music and literature.

Students will be encouraged to practise their language skills in the following ways:

  • Use computers in the Language Centre to watch live satellite TV
  • Practise grammar, writing, reading, translating and listening skills using the recommended web-sites on the computers
  • Give presentations and debate with other students in class
  • Use the language centre for independent study
  • Read ‘punto y coma’ and other Spanish magazines
  • Watch Spanish films that can be borrowed from the College
  • Take part in a trip to Spain, practice Spanish and get to know more about the culture

Assessment Methods

You will be assessed through listening, reading, writing and speaking examinations.

Progression Options

The large majority of our students go on to university with many studying Spanish combined with another subject. You might even decide to work and live in Spain or Latin America to practice and improve your language skills.

I chose to study at the College as it offered me the chance to study the subject I was most interested in and it has an excellent reputation, so I knew I could achieve here.
