Spanish A level aims to develop students’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, in order to provide students with the means to express their ideas through the language. The use of Spanish as the principal means of communication in the classroom plays an important part in this course and prepares students for role-play, discussion and general conversation in the final exam.
