Leeds East Academy



The Spanish GCSE course enables students to develop their ability to communicate confidently and coherently with native speakers in speech and writing.  It also allows them to express and develop thoughts and ideas spontaneously and fluently.  The course deepens students' knowledge of how language works and enriches their vocabulary both in Spanish and in their mother tongue.

Studying a foreign language develops skills and creates inquisitive learners, which links to other areas of the curriculum and develops a range of skills that prepare them for further study in education or for employment.

Assessment is based around four key skills of Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

Students will sit exams in each skill area at the end of Year 11 to determine their overall grade.  They will sit either a foundation paper or a higher paper.
