The International GCSE course builds on the foundation laid in Years 8 and 9 and is lively and modern in approach, enabling you to understand and use Spanish linked both to everyday situations and occasionally to more ‘meaty’ social issues. The basic points of Spanish grammar are straightforward although it undoubtedly poses an increasing academic challenge as the course progresses. A successful student will be keen to develop her knowledge of tenses, vocabulary and key areas of grammar, thus allowing her to understand increasing amounts of written and spoken language as well as stating facts and giving opinions in spoken and written Spanish. We offer you the opportunity to take part in an exchange which, together with regular conversation with our Spanish Speaking Assistant in Year 11, can really help to boost confidence and performance. Assessment will be through terminal examinations in all four skills in the Summer Term of Year 11.
