Spanish is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world; currently spoken by an estimated 350 million people across 4 continents, and as such is a hugely important language both in terms of travel opportunities and those aspiring to an international career in a range of professions from business to law to media to diplomacy to name but a few.
Spanish is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and of the European
Union and is spoken by almost 10% of the US population. As our trade links with
Spain and Latin America continue to grow; knowledge of Spanish will be increasingly useful in the world of work.
Boys studying IGCSE will be able to participate in the annual Spanish exchange to La
Coruña in Galicia giving them the opportunity to experience aspects of everyday Spanish life whilst improving their language skills. Boys in Year 11 have access to a weekly session with a language assistant.
